My son and I have listened to Chance the Rapper for a few months now, and I’ve been impressed by his work and his heart. But on the GRAMMYs this week, I was blown away by his amazing combination of gospel, rap, and pure adrenaline.
Even Slate magazine appreciated it:
The 2017 Grammys marked a major breakthrough for 23-year-old Chance the Rapper. The proud Chicagoan won three Grammys including Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, and Rap Album of the Year for his gospel-rap masterpiece Coloring Book, which became the first streaming-exclusive to ever win a Grammy. And to top it all off, he gave one of the best and most inspiring performances of the night, a medley of highlights from the critically acclaimed mixtape, including “How Great,” “Blessings,” and “All We Got.”
