Big congrats to Chance the Rapper – as he has become the youngest ever person to receive the Humanitarian Award at the BET Awards.
The 24-year-old musician received the award for “positively impacting both local and national communities” which includes donating $1 million to Chicago Public Schools and raising a staggering $2 million through his Social Works organisation.
“This is wildly overwhelming,” he began, as he accepted his award.
“I didn’t prepare a speech because I wanted to speak from my heart. I’m 24 and to be receiving something like this at my age feels good as hell.
“I love this. I love black people man. Gas me up, please. Gas me. I was gonna say it feels a little early to get something like this. But my God doesn’t make mistakes. And I like to think he’s putting this enormous pressure on me to see how I act.
“And I had plans to tell the world and everyone watching to make the world a better place…But my big homie Reese told me that we gotta work on ourselves before we change the world.”
He added that he wanted to help people beyond Chicago and the United States, and help everyone all over the world.
“I’m a good man and I’m gonna be a better man,” he concluded.
“Thank you Ms. Lee, thank you mom. I love y’all.”
Somehow, we don’t think this is the end of his incredible humanitarian work, do you?
