Drake Congratulates Chance The Rapper on 2017 Grammy Awards Wins
Chance The Rapper collected some serious hardware at Sunday night's 59th Annual Grammy Awards (Feb. 12), winning for Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Album. In two of those three categories, he beat Drake, but the Canadian rapper isn't feeling any way because of it, texting Chance a heartfelt congratulations for the victories.
"CONGRATS BOI!!!!!!! WELL DESERVED. I AM IN MANCHESTER HAVING A DRINK FOR U BROSKI. MORE MORE MORE," Drake wrote, Chance posting a screengrab of the text conversation the two had to Instagram Sunday night (Feb. 12). Chance has a response drafted that he hadn't hit send on. "Love you bro! I’m hearing amazing things about your " he wrote. Drake had won the Best Rap Album Grammy in 2013 for Take Care, but has lost in the category in three of the past four years.
Post Grammy text conversations, and the act of sharing them, have made headlines in the past but everything seems friendly and sincere here. Drake won himself for Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Rap Song, both for "Hotline Bling." His Boy Meets World tour continues though the month, stopping in Dublin, Birmingham and Antwerp before hitting Germany and France.
