Is Drake right regarding Macklemore’s post-Grammy text to Kendrick Lamar?


If we know one thing about Drake from the lyrical content of his three platinum plus albums, we know that he’s emotional if anything.

During a recent interview with Rolling Stone for an upcoming issue, the Toronto rapper touched upon the subject of Macklemore’s texted apology to Kendrick Lamar after besting him for the Best Rap Album Grammy.

He said that he thought Macklemore’s text was “wack as f—” and that it didn’t feel genuine.

I was like, ‘You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill,” Drake says. “Take your W, and if you feel you didn’t deserve it, go get better — make better music’. It felt cheap. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won?”

It’s unclear if Drake felt Macklemore was undeserving of his big night at the Grammys flatly stating, “He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick.”

However, what is clear is that Drizzy felt some kind of way to Macklemore only reaching out to Kendrick.

Why name just Kendrick? That s— made me feel funny,” He says. “No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”
