Watch Chance the Rapper's Acceptance Speech for Best Rap Album at the Grammys

Chance the Rapper won Best Rap Album for 'Coloring Book.'

Chance the Rapper just took home the Grammy for Best Rap Album, and gave an impassioned speech that shouted out DJ Drama, SoundCloud, and his independent status in hip-hop.

Earlier in the evening, Chance won Best New Artist. During that speech, he dedicated the victory to God and said, “I know people think that independence means you do it by yourself. But independence means freedom.”
