Macklemore believes he didn’t deserve the Best Rap Album Grammy award he took home on Sunday night. Instead, he believes Kendrick Lamar should have won it.
The rapper – who took home four awards – sent a message to Kendrick on Twitter before posting a screenshot of it on Instagram for all to see.
In the message, Macklemore said he had wanted to shout out to Kendrick during the speech but couldn’t do it because of time constraints.
‘You got robbed. I wanted you to win. You should have. It’s weird and sucks that I robbed you,’ Macklemore said.
The rapper added in the photo caption:
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.. With that being said, thank you to the fans. You’re the reason we were on that stage tonight. And to play Same Love on that platform was a career highlight. The greatest honor of all. That’s what this is about. Progress and art. Thank you. #grammys
How gracious of you Mack!
