Chance just notched a big win for streaming music, but it may not be the only one - he's nominated in six other categories where he and streaming music can take home more honors.
The last time we heard a rapper get mad enough to rap about the Grammys' flawed system was when J. Cole called them out on "Firing Squad".
The singer seemed to have an fantastic night, he mingled with everyone and was genuinely happy for his win.
During his acceptance speech, Chance thanked his frequent collaborator Peter Cottontale and his manager Pat, who have helped him remain independent of a major label since embarking on his career in 2012. He was visibly emotional and touched. Damn, I'm shaking, this is insane.
His moment was very joyful with him spreading a positive energy.
While the Grammys are historically for giving out awards to the wrong winners (see Jethro Tull over Metallica), somethings they get it right. He even managed to establish a record.
Clearly confident in Chance's songwriting talents, Kanye West handed the reigns over to his protege on his latest album The Life Of Pablo. The mixtape is the first streaming-only album to receive a Grammy nomination, and is also notable for its groundbreaking, soulful and unapologetically joyful content.
The artist sported a pretty special outfit. It's also noted that he wore his "Thank You Obama" clothing when accepting his Grammy. Embodying this, made Chance's victories last night one of the greatest feats in the history of Hip-Hop. This year, in particular, should be considered a massive failure for the Grammys based on the fact that Frank Ocean's breathtaking R&B album, "Blonde", was not nominated for any awards.
