Good Morning lovelies and welcome back for yet another edition of #BaeDay! If you’re anything like me, you’re still probably hungover from the performances at last night’s Grammy’s performances which by the way, were AMAZING! From Adele’s humbleness, to Beyonce’s goddess like appearance and performance to Bruno Mars donning Prince-like attire and Chance the Rapper bringing down the house with Kirk Franklin and Tamela Mann – nothing but top notch entertainment. Today’s #CelebrityCrush blew us away with his performance but we’ve got to be honest, he stole our heart a long time ago.
Chance the Rapper, you are our crush for today.
Chance’s first endeavor into the music industry came in early 2011 during his senior year of High School when he was suspended from school for a total of ten days for possessing marijuana on campus. During that time, Chance recorded his first full-length project, a mixtape 10 Days. In December 2011, he released a song titled “Windows”, and publicly announced his 10 Day project. In February 2012, Bennett was highlighted as one of Complex Magazine’s “10 New Chicago Rappers to Watch Out For”.
Ever since then Chance has been on an never ending grind and journey to success. To date he has gained the attention of several popular music artists and the illustrious Forbes Magazine, which featured it in the publication’s Cheap Tunes column.
And just last night, Chance literally made HISTORY! Chance the Rapper won Best New Artist last night at the Grammy’s, making him the first artist to win a Grammy for a streaming-only album. And he’s NOT EVEN SIGNED!!!! In total he was nominated for seven awards. And before the show, he won best rap performance for his hit song “No Problem.” Chance the Rapper, you are nothing short of a star in our eyes and more than anything you win today’s #CelebrityCrush crown! Gotta love a man with talent and ambition.
