How Chance The Rapper’s Grammy Nominations Are Making History
His album Coloring Book was released on the Internet earlier this year and peaked in charts worldwide. Now it might come as no surprise that Chance The Rapper is one of the nominees for the 59th edition of the Grammy’s in 2017! He will be competing in no less than seven categories, including Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance (“No problem”) and Best Rap Album.

The Chicago-based MC already showed his gratitude towards everyone who worked with him on the project in a tweet yesterday morning.
