Chance The Rapper Wins Multiple Grammys, Delivers Powerful Performance of “How Great” / “All We Got” : Watch

Chance Grammy Acceptance speech

Along with being nominated for seven Grammys at this year’s awards, Chance The Rapper has also blessed us with a live performance at the event. He’s taken home the awards for Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance (“No Problem"), and Best Rap Album. It's amazing to see such a talented, independent artist receive the praise Chance has at the awards this year.

Along with delivering an impressive performance, Chance played an important role in the landscape of this year’s Grammys by pushing through a petition to change the Grammy qualifications so that mixtapes and albums that are not sold could still be be considered eligible to win. His hard work paid off in a big way to say the least.

For his performance, he brought out a full gospel choir and orchestra as well as collaborators Francis And The Lights, Nico Segal (Donnie Trumpet) and Tamela Mann among others to play an epic rendition of "How Great" / "All We Got". The powerful performance was pretty amazing to watch as Chance and the entire band put a lot of passion into it. Congrats Chance!

See his acceptance speech for Best New Artist and his amazing performance below. Enjoy!

Mixtapes Released On Soundcloud Will Be Eligible To Win A Grammy In 2018

Just last year, Chance the Rapper managed to change the landscape of the music business by pushing through a petition to change the Grammy qualifications so that mixtapes that are not sold could still be be considered eligible to win. Thanks to his effort, Chance was nominated for seven total Grammys with his latest project, Coloring Book, being nominated for three, all of which he has a great chance of winning. 

Well Chance has just broken some news that, in 2018, all projects released on Soundcloud will be eligible for a Grammy, regardless of if they are up on streaming services. The Grammys has shared new criteria in which music to be considered is from a streaming service that has existed for over a year and has a paid subscription service. Since Soundcloud Go launched back in March, they missed the cutoff for the 2017 Grammys, but Soundcloud projects will be eligible for next year's award show. 

This is amazing news for independent artists who might not be familiar with the process of getting music up on streaming services. It's exciting to see such a long-running, highly-respected award organization adapt to the modern landscape of music. 

The Grammys Production Company Set to Create DJ Awards Spinoff in America

The Grammys have had a stronger electronic presence in recent years, especially with Skrillex winning 3 awards 2 years running. Yet overall the Grammy's seem severely out of the loop with the current electronic world, take the Al Walsner incident as an example. Well Dick Clark Productions, the company responsible for producing the Grammys have crafted the idea of the first American DJ Awards show and have already begun shopping it around to find the proper TV Network. This new award show should add to the growing presence of electronic music in America, which should lead to a more positive light for electronic music as a whole in American media. Electronic events and organizations would start seeing more respect for their events that have been written off by some as giant senseless parties or raves. This could be a huge step forward for electronic music, proving that it is here to stay. Think this is a good move for electronic music? Who do you think would be a fitting judge for this show? What would qualify them? Source: NY Post
