Kendrick Lamar Grammys Interview: Macklemore's Win...

Posted by: Ryan Gardner (01/29/14)
In a recent XXL interview, Kendrick Lamar has addressed the Grammys' results, Macklemore winning, and hip-hop culture at the event.
"Itís well deserved; he did what he did, man... He went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, thatís how it go." [...] ďI definitely feel like they should always have more of the culture up in there, for sure, because we definitely stand out just like any other genre,Ē Kendrick said when asked if he thought the Grammys undervalued hip-hop. ďWe part of the world. We part of the movement. So I think any awards, including the Grammys, should always push for more hip-hop because itís music as a whole, itís not just splitting different regions. Everything moves as far as sound and vibrations, and thatís how it goes. And we are a part of that.Ē

They were the 2 best hip hop albums of the year, IMO. I think either one deserved to win.

They pretty much only cover: pop, rap pop, country pop, rock pop.

Black Sabbath won best metal act in 2014, and they didn't even air that. The Grammy's only gives airtime to what's really popular, and straight up hip-hop is becoming less and less popular.

Edit: I'm not saying there's anything wrong with how the Grammy's operate, but to demand more specific subculture and better art from them is futile.
