Chance The Rapper has been having an amazing year, and the success continued when he took home two BET Hip Hop Awards Tuesday night (Oct. 4). Chance The Rapper just won Best New Hip Hop Artist, and also won Best Mixtape during The BET Hip Hop Awards 2016. Chance’s Coloring Book won in the Best Mixtape category over other mixtapes in the category like, French Montana’s Wave Gods, Future’s Purple Reign, Young Thug’s Slime Season 3, and Lil Uzi Vert’s Lil Uzi Vert Vs. the World.
Chance just spoke on his opinions about releasing his music for free on The Tonight Show and said, “As music grows there’s always new ways of releasing. There’s visual albums and full concerts and big broadway musical and so many ways that music moves around now,” Chance says. “I feel like trying to fit it into a for sale album is kinda obsolete now. It gives me more space to create and put out stuff.”
Chance’s Coloring Book became the first project to chart within the top ten on Billboard’s Album 200 chart off of streaming alone.
