He also took home trophies for Best Rap Album (Coloring Book) and Best Rap Performance ("No Problem").

There might not be a more positive rapper in the game today than Chance. "I want to thank God for my mother and my father who have supported me since I was young".

This was Chance's third win at the award show.

The performance is a capstone on a career-defining year for Chance. Chance also won in the Best New Artist category, which cemented his reputation as one of the industry's new leading lights.

Organized by the Recording Academy and emceed by "Late, Late Show" host James Corden, the award show opened with British megastar Adele, who won the prizes for song, record and album of the year, singing her hit "Hello". The availability of this tape allows the artist to market their work without the focus on record sales, thus allowing them to be just as free with their music as they are with the price.

"I didn't think we were gonna win this one", Chance said while accepting the gold saxophone for his album "Coloring Book".

In August, Chance experimented with new ways for fans to request local radio stations to play independent music, via his Rapper Radio initiative.

Chance the Rapper, fresh off his epic night at the 59 annual Grammy Awards, will be headed into Blossom Music Center on Friday, May 19.

The best new artist victor wore a variety of shoes throughout the night, pairing black-and-brown brogues with a Thom Browne suit on the red carpet and opting for a casual hooded sweatshirt, black jeans and Nike Air Huaraches during the pre-show.

Chance the Rapper also collaborated with other artists in the past including Childish Gambino, Supa Bwe, Kehlan and many more.
