Drake Slams Macklemore over Grammy Win
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Apparently people still aren’t over Macklemore and Ryan Lewis winning the Grammy for Best Rap Album. After people stormed to social media to make their anger known, Macklemore actually posted to Instagram a text message he sent to Kendrick Lamar in which he apologized for “robbing” the Compton emcee of the award.
Kendrick is over it but apparently Drake is feeling some kind of way still.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, he says he felt posting a screenshot of the text message was “wack as f*ck.” Drake goes on and says:
“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 sh*t.
Drake then goes on to say that he thinks Macklemore should have also apologized to him, Jay Z and Kanye too since they were also nominated:
“To name just Kendrick? That sh*t made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”
