Playing Chance the Rapper Was Everyone's Best Friend at the 2017 GRAMMYs -- See the Pics!

Nobody has any problems with Chance the Rapper.

The rapper -- who made history at Sunday’s GRAMMY Awards when he became the first independent artist to win Best New Artist -- also seemed to be having a historically good time, posing for pics with everyone from Jay Z to J.Lo and receiving some very special love from one of his fellow nominees.

Sporting his signature “3” hat and ditching his overalls for a suit and tie, the 23-year-old Chicago-born rapper rocked the red carpet, snapping shots with fans, as well as fellow performer Katy Perry.

Once he got inside the awards show, however, is when the real fun began. In addition to Best New Artist, Chance also scored golden gramophones for Best Rap Performance, for his Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz collab, "No Problem," and Best Rap Album, for Coloring Book (the first-ever streaming-only album to even be nominated, let alone win). Just look how excited Taraji P. Henson was for him!

He also scored a hug from Jay Z and some face time with Rihanna. Not a bad haul.

Prior to the ceremony, Chance (real name: Chancelor Bennett) shared a shout-out from Drake, who’s currently touring in Europe and missed the awards show. Though he and Champagne Papi swapped wins in some of the rap categories, there was nothing but love in their text conversation.

“CONGRATS BOI!!!!!! WELL DESERVED,” Drake wrote, according to a screenshot shared by Chance. “I AM IN MANCHESTER HAVING A DRINK FOR U BROSKI. MORE MORE MORE.”
