Macklemore x Kendrick

When Macklemore beat out Kendrick Lamar in multiple rap categories at the Grammys this year, he sent a text to him, apologizing for what he calls “robbing” him. He then took it to Instagram to share it with the world, which almost appeared to be his way of deflecting any hate he was going to get for the win. Clearly, it didn’t work.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Drake added his two cents on the situation, and he personally thinks the gesture was “wack as f*ck.”

“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,’” Drizzy said in the interview. “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?”

He also spoke on what he thinks Mack should have done instead.

“This is how the world works: He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick,” he explained. “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.”

“To name just Kendrick? That shit made me feel funny,” he added. “No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”
