Though his Best Rap Album win made history at the Grammys earlier this year, Chance the Rapper is still willing to share the success with others.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Chano will be donating the award to his hometown of Chicago’s DuSable Museum of African American History.

While being honored with a Trail Blazer Award from the museum at its Night of 100 Stars gala on Saturday, Chance surprised the venue’s officials when he made the announcement, 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.”

Receiving a standing ovation after sharing the news, Chano added:

“I don’t need it! I don’t need it! That’s right! Stand up! Stand up! So y’all, I’m a Trail Blazer, I guess, according to this award. But so is everybody in this room, and I’m so glad to be working on this project with you guys. I can’t wait to see what Chicago and the DuSable Museum of African American History does. Thank you Mom and Dad.”

DuSable board member Lisa Pilot Livingston said, “Of course we didn’t know about it. We had no idea. I looked at DuSable President/CEO Perri Irmer, and she looked at me, and we all just stood up and applauded.”
