The night is still young, but Chance The Rapper has already won his first Grammy.
Lil' Chano from the 79th is taking home a gramophone for Best Rap Performance for "No Problem". The song, which features Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz, is a highlight from his album Coloring Book.
He received the award during a segment of the awards that aren't televised — but fortunately, footage of his acceptance speech has made it online. Chance ran onto the stage, wearing his signature "3" cap before excitedly stuttering through his speech.
"Shit, this is crazy," he said, before thanking his friends and family. "I love God, I love my family, and I love music."
Watch Chance's moment below. He lost "Best Rap/Sung Performance" and "Best Rap Song" to Drake's hit "Hotline Bling," but he won Best New Artist at the top of the awards. There's still time for him to take home another award for Best Rap Album.
