After winning four Grammys, Macklemore immediately reached out to Kendrick to tell him that he felt like he robbed him in the category of Best Rap Album.
Macklemore Reveals Text He Sent To Kendrick Lamar
The album had several hits: “Same Love,” “Thrift Shop” and “White Walls.” It beat out Kendrick’s Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City, and unfortunately, Kendrick didn’t win a single Grammy.
Macklemore clearly felt as though his win wasn’t deserved, so along with this Instagram, he posted a message: “My text to Kendrick after the show. He deserved best rap album. I’m honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys. But in that category, he should have won IMO, And that’s taking nothing away from The Heist. Just giving GKMC it’s proper respect.”
Macklemore’s Performance With Madonna At The Grammys
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performed with Madonna towards the end of The Grammys and it was amazing! It was for a rendition of their gay rights anthem “Same Love,” and it was stunning.
During the song, Queen Latifah actually officiated 33 marriages for mainly same-sex couples.
It was very sweet of Macklemore to text Kendrick, but he should realize that his win is well-deserved! HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Macklemore’s text to Kendrick?
