Drake Slams Macklemore For ‘Wack’ Text To Kendrick Lamar
Multiple Grammy winners Macklemore and Ryan Lewis showed some love to fellow nominee Kendrick Lamar by sending him a text which read, “You got robbed. I wanted you to win.” Turns, out, at least one person’s not really feeling the love.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Drake blasted the rap duo by saying that the text was unnecessary, calling it “wack as f**k.”
“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 told the magazine. “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?”
He went on to say that Grammy winners don’t always make the best albums. “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 s**t.”
Drake ended by saying that if Mack was going to hand out apologies, he shouldn’t have stopped at Lamar. To name just Kendrick? That s**t made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”
At last report, Drake was still randomly checking his cellphone…
