Chance the Rapper’s Petition Changed the Grammys To Include Free Releases

Chance Grammys

Chance The Rapper has always been uncompromising on his decision to release his music for free. The very respectable decision has not only led to battles with labels to release his music, but has also blocked his ability to earn a Grammy nomination due to their previous requirement of music needing to be available for sale. 

This led to Chance The Rapper pushing a petition for the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences to reconsider the Grammy requirements and allow free music to be eligible for the prestigious award. The movement quickly picked up steam, and as a result the 2017 Awards will look differently. For the first time ever, streaming-only releases will be eligible for nomination. 

Chance The Rapper’s Coloring Book is an amazing stream only album, which now has the opportunity to grab a Grammy. It’s exciting to see the award grow with the times as Bill Freimuth of the Recording Academy has made a statement “Our trustees felt like the time had come; it’s been on our radar for a couple of years now,” he says. He goes on to explain that for music to be considered it must be a legitimate release and not just some random youtube video as he states “The goal was to include recordings that were worthy of Grammy consideration that were streaming-only — which it turns out were a pretty small number — and exclude the 12-year-old singing a Beyonce cover into her comb that’s easy to put up online also these days for streaming.”

We’re excited to see this new change in the Grammys next year and are looking forward to see what happens as a result.

Skrillex, Chance The Rapper & Hundred Waters Perform “Show Me Love" On Late Show With Stephen Colbert

Skrillex Chance The Rapper Live

Earlier this year we were pleasantly surprised by a new Skrillex remix enlisting the talents of none other than Chance The Rapper for an incredible new version of Hundred Waters’ “Show Me Love.” The remix has been on high rotation for us ever since and now we all get the pleasure of seeing this version of track performed live for the first time. 

Before their performance for tonight's episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Skrillex and Chance The Rapper were brought out during the episode in which Chance did 3 short freestyles about cereal while Skrillex got wild jumping around with Colbert.

For the episode's musical performance, Hundred Waters had a full band including a small orchestra and backup singers while Skrillex played guitar and Chance joined in to perform their joint version of “Show Me Love” live for the frist time. This live performance proved to be even more satisfying than the studio version and will give you chills. Hundred Waters’ silky vocals hit just right while Chance shows off once again just how great he is live by delivering a passionate performance. Watch both videos below, and enjoy!
