The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the rapper’s announcement at the museum’s gala Saturday surprised officials. He said during his speech that he wants to make the museum “a staple of African-American history” and received a standing ovation.

 

The best rap album Grammy is one of three Chance won in February, including best new artist. His album “Coloring Book” was the first streaming-only album to win the award. He also won best rap performance.

The 24-year-old Chicago rapper, whose name is Chancelor Bennett, was named to the more than half-century-old museum’s board of trustees in January, along with his father Ken Bennett, who is a Chicago tourism executive.
