Macklemore Apologizes to Kendrick Lamar for Winning

Posted by: Jason Tate (01/27/14)
Macklemore sent a text to Kendrick Lamar apologizing for winning best rap album at the Grammys last night.
My text to Kendrick after the show. He deserved best rap albumÖ Iím honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys. But in that category, he should have won IMO. And thatís taking nothing away from The Heist. Just giving GKMC itís proper respect.. With that being said, thank you to the fans. Youíre 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. Thatís what this is about. Progress and art. Thank you. #grammys

I mean, reading this makes me less irritated about him winning, but my irritation in the first place was directed at the people who gave him the award, not Macklemore himself.

Kendrick should have won, and if not him, then Kanye.

Yup. It's bullshit but I'm glad Macklemore is humble.

I gained a few respect points for him on this. I mean, he didn't necessarily do anything wrong, but.

All that needs to be said. Still, props to Mr. Lemore.

I do not understand Kendrick Lamar's shit. Everyone seems to be so high up on him, but he's just another rapper that puts on a fake accent and raps. What is it with this trend shit? I don't get it at all, there's so much better hip hop out there.

His album is an actual ALBUM. So many people in hip hop don't do that anymore sadly.

This text is cringeworthy. Sounds like some dumb college bro wrote it. Also, how do you act humble and then post your shit on instagram for everyone to see?

The subject matter of his material is something that harkens back to the "golden age" of hip-hop when a lot of records were about struggle and systematic oppression. Lots of people can't get over the nasally voice he puts on occasionally, and I understand that. But the reason the record is so good is because the subject matter is fantastic, his flow is fantastic, and the production is fantastic.

The sparkle of Macklemore's sentiment is completely ruined by the fact that he had to let everyone know that he texted Lamar.

Beat me to it. Macklemore is quickly becoming obnoxious.
