Chance the Rapper made an announcement at Chicago’s DuSable Museum of African American History on gala Saturday, saying he’s donating his Grammy Award for best rap album to the museum.
The 24-year-old Chicago rapper, named to the more than half-century old museum’s board of trustees in January, along with his father Ken Bennett, who is a Chicago tourism executive said; he wants to make the museum “a staple of African American history”.
Chance in February won The best rap album, best rap performance and best new artist at the Grammys.
He as well won two awards at the just concluded BET Awards 2017; “BET Humanitarian Award” to become the youngest to have that, and “best collaboration”.
