On June 25, the 2017 BET Awards is kicking off at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Chance the Rapper is amongst the many nominees this year, but he’s being recognized for his charitable nature. The Chi-Town native is receiving the BET Humanitarian Award for “positively impacting both local and national communities” and initiating “impactful educational, social and political initiatives,” according to Fader.
This award is no surprise. Chance has been donating to Chicago public schools and other organizations, as well as, encouraging young people to vote during the 2016 Presidential Election. He’ll be among other notable celebrities, such as Al Sharpton, Quincy Jones, and Muhammad Ali, by being a BET Humanitarian Award recipient.
