Inside or outside of the music industry odds are you’ve heard of Chance The Rapper. The breakout Chicago artist first started making noise in 2013 when he released his mixtape Acid Rap. The genre blending tape featured the likes of Twista, R. Kelly and a young Kanye that felt more like an open mic night at a jazz bar as opposed to a rap album. This gained him the deserving attention as best lyricist of the year and a nomination for best mixtape of the year at the BET Music awards.
Fast forward to 2017. Chance has now increased his value and has built his own brand with with co-signs, but remians independent, from the industries biggest players and artists. This year at the Grammy’s he was nominated in five categories and walked away with three wins including best new artist, best rap performance and best rap album. However, Chance doesn’t stop there.
