Grammy night was a big night for two artists we've covered from Chicago. BJ The Chicago Kid and Chance The Rapper were up to win awards in multiple categories. BJ had put out a great album, "In My Mind", that demonstrated his ability to provide the ears with good soulful R&B music with plenty of inspiration from the greats. Chance The Rapper broke barriers with the release of "Coloring BooK", his official third solo release that saw him catapult to even bigger stardom.
Last night's festivities were huge for Chance The Rapper, as he coincidentally took home 3 awards to match that number on his hat. While BJ The Chicago Kid didn't win a Grammy last night it doesn't change the fact that he's still helping bring back traditional R&B to the forefront.
Fighting for the reconistion of indie artist who don't have a big label backing, Chance The Rapper found ways to rally his fanbase getting them involved in the process spreading his sound. While there are some who would say that the rapper his secretly signed to record label or has some big backing, there has yet to be any concrete proof of that. He took the initiative to help get the ear of radio and fought to be recongnized at the Grammy's.
Overall the Chicago artist recieved 7 nods and taking home three in for best new artist, rap album and rap performance. Watch his live performance aka victory lap below.
