Chance the Rapper is still willing to share the success with others.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Chano will be donating his grammy to his hometown of Chicago's DuSable Museum of African American History.
While being honored with a Trail Blazer Award from the museum at its Night of 100 Stars gala on Saturday, Chance surprised the venue's officials when he made the announcement, saying:
“I’m so excited to not just work hand in hand with the African American History Museum, but we want to build it up. We want to make it a staple of African American history. And that’s why I’m proud to announce that I’ll be donating my Hip-Hop Album of the Year Award, the first one to a black independent artist, to the DuSable.”
Receiving a standing ovation after sharing the news, Chano added:
“I don’t need it! I don’t need it! That’s right! Stand up! Stand up! So y’all, I’m a Trail Blazer, I guess, according to this award. But so is everybody in this room, and I’m so glad to be working on this project with you guys. I can’t wait to see what Chicago and the DuSable Museum of African American History does. Thank you Mom and Dad.”
