Later, he won for Best New Artist.

Chance was nominated in five other Grammy categories this year for a total of seven nominations.

Chance the Rapper benefited from a change in Grammy rules this year to consider streaming-only releases.

"Glory be to God. I claim theAvictory in the name of the Lord", said the 23-year-old while accepting his award. "I want to thank Him for my mother, for my father, for my brother, Taylor Bennett, for my friends".

Chance was the first unsigned artist to perform on Saturday Night Live and recently became the first artist to release a music video through Facebook Live with the launch of Same Drugs. Featured on "Ultralight Beam", Chance explodes onto the scene with unique flow and engaging lyrics.

Last month, the proud dad uploaded a series of Instagram posts featuring Kensli - including one that showed the little girl with then-President Barack and Michelle Obama. Once, for "Best Rap Song", and another for "Best Rap Performance". The rapper's connection to the Bulls runs even deeper as he recently appeared on the cover of ESPN the Magazine with the team's lone All-Star Jimmy Butler, who offered an accurate prediction of Chance's performance at the Grammys. S***, this is insane. Thank God for this. "I'm shaking. This is insane". "There are songs that are like 'California Girls" and 'Teenage Dream.' But I think there's definitely another angle that you have yet to see because I just feel something totally different", she told People.

In August, Chance experimented with new ways for fans to request local radio stations to play independent music, via his Rapper Radio initiative. Beyoncé, nominated for a record nine, took home two.

"Love you, bro", Chance wrote back. Let us know your thoughts on the artist in the comment section below.
