For many hip hop fans, the only thing worse than Macklemore sweeping the rap categories at this year’s Grammy’s was the text message he sent to competitor/friend Kendrick Lamar after. Dripping with empathy and slight embarassment, the Seattle rapper would go on to share the intimate message with millions of Instagram followers and confuse rap enthusiasts everywhere.
This week, Drake- another “Best Rap Album” nominee- called Macklemore’s apology “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,’”he recently told Rolling Stone. “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?nTo name just Kendrick? That shit made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”
