The 59th annual Grammy awards went down last night and some of hip-hop’s biggest stars took home several trophies. Chance The Rapper racked up three awards including ‘Best New Artist’ and ‘Best Rap Album.’ Drake managed to reap the rewards for his infectious single “Hotline Bling” by snagging two awards. 

 

Beyonce went home with the award for ‘Best Urban Contemporary Album.’ She went up against Adele for the top three awards of the night: Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
