Macklemore To Kendrick Lamar: ‘It’s Weird And Sucks That I Robbed You’
Earlier tonight, Twitter was on fire after Macklemore swept the rap categories, picking up awards for Best New Artist, Best Rap Song (Thrift Shop), as well as Best Rap Album (The Heist). Meanwhile, he completely shut out the likes of Kendrick Lamar and even Jay Z (who eventually snagged an award for Best Rap/Sung collaboration for Holy Grail.)
Tonight, after he won Best Rap Album over Kendrick Lamar, people were in an uproar, and Macklemore responded by sharing a text he wrote to Kendrick.
The text said:
You got robbed. I wanted you to win. You should have. It’s weird and sucks that I robbed you. I was going to say that during the speech. Then the music started playing and I froze. Anyway, you know what it is. Congrats on this year and your music. Appreciate you as an artist and a friend. Much love.
Kendrick hasn’t said anything yet about the upset, but he did have an amazing performance with Imagine Dragons.
