Cardi B has made history as the first female solo artist to win Best Rap Album at the Grammys, for her debut, Invasion of Privacy. Lauryn Hill was the last woman to win the award (over 20 years ago), with the Fugees; Cardi, you’ll recall, was also the first female rapper to have a No. 1 song since Lauryn Hill, bringing the torch-passing full circle.

The DuSable Museum of African American History will be receiving Chance’s “Best Rap Album” Grammy to display for fans. It’s the first Grammy ever awarded to an independent black artist, a piece of important history.
Chance, alongside his father was named to the board of trustees for the museum back in January. According to the Chicago-Sun Times he announced the decision at the Night Of 100 Stars gala which was hosted at the museum this past Saturday, saying “I’m so excited to not just work hand in hand with the African American History Museum, but we want to build it up. We want to make it a staple of African American history. And that’s why I’m proud to announce that I’ll be donating my Hip-Hop Album of the Year Award, the first one to a black independent artist, to the DuSable.”
Hats off to Chano.
