Chance The Rapper Is Still Winning!
Reader kudo's to Grammy Award-winning artist Chance the Rapper who will deliver this year's commencement address to graduates of Dillard University in New Orleans. Some say that Chance The Rapper came into the game, (You Can Read It Here) winning and has yet to slow down on his accomplishments. The school's 82nd Commencement ceremonies for more than 200 graduates will be held Saturday, May 12, at 8 a.m. on the campus' historic Avenue of the Oaks. Dillard President Dr. Walter M. Kimbrough says Chance the Rapper, whose real name is Chancellor Bennett, is part of a new wave of artists who can openly talk about faith while being in hip hop, balancing the secular and the sacred. In 2017, the 24-year-old's independent project "Coloring Book" became the first streaming-only album to be nominated and win a Grammy.
