Macklemore Says Kendrick Lamar Deserved To Win Grammy

MacklemoreTextWhile I could easily go on about how Kendrick Lamar was robbed last night at the Grammys, it looks like Macklemore was the first to admit his shock. He took to Instagram last night to reveal a text he sent Kendrick, which basically shows how much respect he has for the Compton artist. And it appears the respect is mutual, which is quite frankly a great thing to see. And even though I could go without Macklemore, this was a rather admirable act.

Here is what Macklemore had to say about the text:

My text to Kendrick after the show. He deserved best rap album… I’m honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys. But in that category, he should have won IMO. And that’s taking nothing away from The Heist. Just giving GKMC it’s proper respect.. With that being said, thank you to the fans. You’re the reason we were on that stage tonight. And to play Same Love on that platform was a career highlight. The greatest honor of all. That’s what this is about. Progress and art. Thank you. #grammys

    Thing about Macklemore is, he’s been the same dude just trying to make it for years. He finally broke through, and honestly, his songs have solid content. Yeah, I’m probably not going to be bumping his shit in the whip, but you can’t hate on the guy for staying true to himself, making it big, and remaining humble.

    Kendrick did get robbed though..how’re you gonna give a dude 7 nominations and 0 awards?

    Not just classy, but seeing that the whole rap industry is aware that Kendrick is the future of the game is a great thing!
