Chance the Rapper Wears Classic Nike Air Max During Grammy Performance

Then, last night, he made history and won three Grammys.

Fresh off his big Grammy Award wins Sunday, Chance the Rapper has announced his spring 2017 tour, including a May 9 show at Tulsa's BOK Center, 200 S Denver. After his victory, Lil Chano received a flood of messages and in the clutter was a congratulatory text from the 6 God reaching out from Manchester. In modern terms, a mixtape is a project where an artist (who is normally independent) produces an original tape that is absent of the mainstream pressures that govern the construction of an album.

It's nice to see a celebrity proclaim his faith on the most public of all stages, and it was nice to hear the applause from his peers in the industry.

"I didn't think we were gonna win this one", Chance said while accepting the gold saxophone for his album "Coloring Book". Chance's wins - hell, his nominations alone - highlight an effort by the Recording Academyto catch up to a new era: where we turn to our Apple Musics, Spotifys and Tidals for our tunes over near-mythical CD stores (#RIPRhythmHouse).

Later in the night, Chance thanked God again when he accepted another award for Best Rap Performance. You can't buy a CD of "Coloring Book".

Part of the caption for the photograph read: "thank YOU GUYS for everything".

Chance is a mainstream rapper who has recently taken to merging Christianity into his hip-hop worldview. Addressing the spirituality which inspired the mixtape, Chance told the Rickey Smiley Morning Show: "I really got a good glimpse at God after my daughter was born, she got sick right after".

You might remember that Chance the Rapper began his "Magnificent Coloring World Tour" previous year right here in San Diego at SDSU's Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre on September 15 - and we're stoked to have him back so soon.
