The 2017 BET Awards will honor Chance The Rapper with this year’s Humanitarian Award. The artist has been breaking new ground not only musically, but in the community as well.
While his mixtape Coloring Book was highly acclaimed, Chance has also received high praise for his activism to better not only his hometown of Chicago, but the country as a whole. He has long been outspoken about nationwide injustices and racial equality, to name a few. He worked alongside President Obama in a program meant to help men of color with the difficulties the face, getting civic leaders to intervene. He then donated $1 million dollars to Chicago public schools, prompting the NBA’s Chicago Bulls to do the same. Read the XXL article here.
The BET Awards will air on June 25th at 8pm EST.
