２０１７年２月１２日に開催された 第５９回 グラミーアワード。史上初となる「CDを発売しないでグラミー賞グランプリ」を受賞した ラッパー Chance The Rapper が誕生日パーティーを開催した。スペシャルゲストに Ludacris と T-Pain も合流して数曲を披露したらしい。またスペシャルなケーキには、サウス名物なホットチキン＆キウィーストロベリージュースも添えられた。
After teasing the event last week, Chance The Rapper’s 24th birthday extravaganza officially went down on Sunday (April 16) as planned. Held at Chicago’s Studio Paris Nightclub, the raucous party raised over $100,000 for his non-profit, SocialWorks.
Aside from what appears to be one of the most decadent custom cakes ever created — constructed to look like a bucket of Harold’s Chicken complete with hot sauce, fries and a bottle of kiwi-strawberry Mistic — Lil Chano brought along a couple of special guests, Ludacris and T-Pain, who both hit the stage at some point during the evening.
Ludacris performed one of his breakout hits, 2001’s “Move B***H,” while T-Pain got a bit more soulful with “Buy U A Drank,” which he released in 2007. In addition to the spirited celebration at his hometown venue, Chance’s younger sibling, Taylor Bennett, also wrote a song for his big brother — the aptly titled “Only Brother” — which Chance confessed brought him to tears, according to one of his Twitter posts.
