The 24-year-old independent rapper made Grammys history in February when he won a Grammy for best rap performance for the song "No Problem," off his hit album "Coloring Book." It was the first track off a streaming-only album to win a Grammy.Chance, who famously doesn't have a record deal and doesn't sell his albums, won two more Grammys for Best Rap Album and Best New Artist this year.
Chance played renditions of "Waves," "Father Stretch My Hands," and "Ultralight Beam" - all tracks from West's 2016 "The Life of Pablo" - amidst a set full of his own mega-hits including "No Problem," "Sunday Candy," and "Angels."It's worth noting that Chance worked on a number of tracks for "Pablo," earning writing credits on all three of those songs, and production credits on "Ultralight Beam."
Here's a bit of Waves:

I was too busy enjoying the show to film "Father Stretch My Hands," but here it is at Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Colorado last month:
