The 59th Edition of the Annual Grammy Award show was spectacular to watch. With the megastar Adele breaking her Grammy award to Lady Gaga performing with Metallica, everything about the ceremony was stellar. It has been a good year for Hip-Hop’s new school and the best new artist would agree with me. Chance The Rapper performed and also took the ceremony by storm by bagging two awards over artists like The Chainsmokers and Drake.
Chance won the category of the Best New Artist along with the category of the Best Rap Performance for his track ‘No Problems’ with 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne. This was really huge for the entire Hip-Hop community knowing that an independent SoundCloud artist was able to make it on the grandest stage of all awards. We at Desi Hip Hop congratulate Chance The Rapper for slaying the music industry.
This wasn’t all for Hip-Hop! Drake also bagged two awards for his viral track ‘Hotline Bling’. The Best Rap Song and the Best Rap/Sung Performance went to ‘Hotline Bling’. Always nominated for the album of the year Drake wasn’t present at the award ceremony because of his tour dates. Both Chance The Rapper and Drake in my personal opinion deserved the award. Check out a part of the conversation that happened between the two winners.
