More Like Wacklemore, Am I Right?

Posted by: Ryan Dennehy (02/12/14)
Pardoning my first-ever horrible pun headline - Drake talks in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone about Macklemore's infamous Instagram of an apology he texted to Kendrick Lamar upon winning the Grammy for Best Rap Album last month. More exactly, he calls the move "wack as fuck."
I was like, 'You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn't deserve it, go get better—make better music... It felt cheap. It didn't feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won? This is how the world works: He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick. Whether people wanna say it's racial, or whether it's just the fact that he tapped into something we can't tap into. That's just how the cards fall. Own your shit.

Breaking Bad more like Breaking Good.

I agree with Drake though.

A+ headline. Me and my friends have been referring to him as Wacklemore for months.

I agree - The text was fine.. but to show it off to the world seemed disingenuous

I hate Drake with a living passion, and love Macklemore more than I should, but Drake is absolutely right. Macklemore is letting his celebrity get in the way of his music. I do think the move to put his text up is a slap in the face of Kendrick, too.
