Chicago’s very own Chance The Rapper made Grammy Awards history Tuesday.

He picked up seven nominations, including Best Rap Album for “Coloring Book,” making it the first streaming-only album to receive a Grammy nomination, Forbes reports.

His other nominations include Best Rap Performance, Best Rap-Sung Performance, Best Rap Song and Best New Artist, though he’s hardly a new artist. Grammy rules that have since been changed now allow him to be considered for nomination.

The 59th Grammy Awards will take place on February 12, 2017.
