We absolutely love Chance the Rapper, his selflessness and the little bit of inspiration that he sprinkles everywhere that he goes.

Known as one of the youngest icons in the country and well on his way to being one of the most legendary musicians of our time, Chance is now planning to donate his Grammy Award for best rap album to Chicago’s DuSable Museum of African American History, which is located in his native city of Chi-Town.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times reports, they claim that the rapper announced his big plans at the museum’s gala just this past Saturday to surprise their officials.

He’d also said, during his speech that he would like to make the museum “a staple of African American history” and received a standing ovation shortly after.

The Grammy is only one of three that Chance won on that fateful night back in February of this year, the other two include best new artist and best rap performance for his album “Coloring Book,” which he was able to release independently.

The 24-year-old rapper and father-of-one, whose real name is Chancelor Bennett, was named as one of the more than a half-century old museum’s trustee members, as well as his father, Ken Bennett, a tourism exec.

We are so happy that Chance has made the strides that he has made and we are hopeful that he will continue to do amazing things while making some awesome music in his spare time.
