It’s been a great year for Chance The Rapper. So far the Chicago native has taken home Best New Artist and Best Rap Album at the Grammy’s and has now won Best New Hip-Hop Artist at the iHeartRadio Awards.
Chance beat out Kevin Gates, D.R.A.M., Kent Jones and Desiigner for the award. Chance was nominated in the Best New Artist category but lost out to The Chainsmokers.
Chance did not attend the iHeartRadio Awards at The Forum in Inglewood, California on March 5. Instead, Chance The Rapper spent part of the weekend discussing funding for public education with activist DeRay McKesson.
