The iHeartRadio Music Awards this weekend was full great performances and exciting announcements alike.

One the highlights the event was when Chance the Rapper received the Innovator the Year award. The honor was presented to him by Pharrell and Chance gave a great speech that honored artists who came before him.

For a conscious independent rapper like Chance, the young star couldn’t help but shout out names like James Brown, Prince and Ray Charles. He even showed love to contemporary artists such as Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé. You can check out Chance’s full speech for yourself below!
