Drake On Macklemore’s Grammy Win

Drake+Time+Warner+Cable+Studios+Revolt+Bring+54cI4UvfEcgl

Some Type Of Way.

Although Kendrick Lamar unfazed by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Best Rap Album Grammy win, Drake, who was also nominated, was more perturbed. He told Rolling Stone that he felt Mack’s public apology was gratuitous and that the other nominees deserved texts as well.

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. 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? 

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 shit. 

To name just Kendrick? That shit made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”

    Drake robbed Nas. Still can’t believe this pop singer won best rap album.

    • drewsmit24

      Exactly

    • polopolo1

      nigga get over it his shit is nice, nas is a top dog but his album wasnt even like that, even if drake didnt win im willing to bet nas wasnt even next in line sorry

      • Hussle

        you’re playing yourself

      • Tec1Nyc

        No one is discrediting Drake but Nas is Nas and you can’t take that away from the G.O.A.T

      • Michael Angelo

        I’m the biggest Nas fan in the world……. the album wasnt all that lol

    • Michael Angelo

      yikes

  • Goat

    Somebody had to say it.

    • wow

      E! The goat makes an appearance lol

      • Goat

        Always in the shadows, it don’t stop lol

    • Jivenchy

      Everyone can agree. I never thought Drake would be the one to say it

  • Nathaniel

    at least he kept it real, shit.

    • Cmon Son

      By being a cry baby, true

      • RBS

        How is he crying? He’s being honest about what he considered a wack move.

        • 95

          To name just Kendrick? That shit made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!” – that’s being a cry baby

          • RBS

            He was clearly making a point about how unnecessary the text was. Pretty obvious he didn’t really expect a text.

          • tututhebadboy

            How obvious? His last statement was ” We all need a text messages!”.. what do u mean? I think he literally would’ve been content enough to not say this if he and Kendrick got txts together..

          • wyndexfresh

            So you saying macklemore had the second best album???? No. And he worked hard on nwts and it was the best album of 2013. But he’s competing with albums from 2012.
            Drake should’ve won atleast one Grammy. Like he said him ye and Jay deserved a text too. He’s a artist and he’s sensitive about his shit

        • tututhebadboy

          You do have to admit.. Him being so honest a lot of times is a whack move itself… like why is he so vulnerable and honest in his music but he waits to diss ppl in magazines and interviews?? Give us the new ether then drizzy!! SHIT.. & I’m a fan.. i just always feel so lame abt it when he mixes up the favorites to follow. like Bra.. ur either Jay’z or Kanye..you either beef with it or whine abt it.. no gray area. Plz

          • RBS

            I get your point, but I also feel like Drake’s way of doing things is closer to how shit actually works in real life. Like I don’t think he’s necessarily “dissing” people, rather noting certain things he finds disagreeable. Sometimes it is unnecessary, but also too minor to really call for “beef” or a diss record. Almost like he feels it’s beneath him to take things that far.

    • Guest

      He kept his emotions real, but creating “brand of music that appealed to more people” wins you best ALBUM, not best RAP ALBUM. Also, not everyone that votes in the Grammys knows about rap music. This is something that Macklemore stated which makes the whole Grammy thing less credible. In return making Drakes earlier “validation” less meaningful.

  • RocsTeadious

    PLEASE just shut the fuck up drake…..To quote Kurupt “Bitch nigga, you more of a bitch than a bitch.”

  • tlox

    Yeah, it was a weird thing to do, made him look a bit needy and
    pathetic.If he really felt that way then he should have told Lamar
    privately.

    • Chronic

      I don’t like Macklemores music…but I think he did it in the public eye cause he realized that race did play a part of it and wanted the people who vote on this thing to realize that numbers don’t mean everything and to actually look at the body of work, not just singles sold.

      • tlox

        well if numbers meant something Drake

        out of everyone nominated would have won, so…..

      • TeF

        I don’t know, Macklemore may seem like a genuine dude, but there is no mistaking that he knows what lanes to play to keep a buzz. He does believe in acceptance, but it doesn’t rule out the fact that he exploits the message to gain more support and success, look what happened when Lady Gaga came out as a champion for Gays, they bought ALL of her albums… ALL of them. That whole text message thing was nothing more than a PR stunt. If it wasn’t, it would have stayed private. It’s a gimmick, but the thing is, you can’t be both, you can’t own the Grammys and AMAs for a night, then try to spit in the face of the Grammys and pull a text message posting stunt to seem “real” when you realize that rap fans don’t really fuck with you in comparison to your peers. This is Macklemore’s crossroads, these corporations will continue to endorse him and give him contracts, and award shows will hold him down, but that will disconnect him from the real rap community, however if he calls himself being stand up and pulling stunts to pretend he’s less of a media puppet, they will drop his ass as a spokesperson, and find the next safe pop/country/rap personality to talk through, ask Frank Ocean.

        • sincereakilleez

          Drake stan^

  • Jon Long

    Macks album was more hip hop than drakes. Kendrick should have won but the three monster international hits mack had put him in the public eyes of Grammy voters. Jigga should have gotten more consideration. With all that said mack is rapping harder than all the newer NYC rappers who wanna do strip atl snap raps.

  • Chronic

    Drakes just butt hurt that Kendrick is killing shit

  • Peekay

    funny that there’s a good chance he won’t even win a Juno for best rap album as there were some great albums from Classified & Shad in 2013.

  • polopolo1

    lol and just like that the beef is Slowly but surely stewing, i think the kendrick and drake name dropping that you all so desperately crave is on the horizon

    • intelligentsoul

      he didnt diss drake…he dissed Macklemore

  • drewsmit24

    Gay Agenda 1 Jewish Connect 0

  • ManFrizzLe

  • http://www.PhillztheMC.com/ Phillz the MC – #TIMELESS

    Nigga you Jewish. Shut up. You can tap into anything that Macklemore “tapped” into. Period.

  • UNIVERSALABDUCTEES

    SEE THE THING ABOUT DRAKE SAYING THIS IS HE CAN SAY IT, BECAUSE I PROMISE YOU HE AND MACKLEMORE WILL COME ACROSS EACHOTHER AND ACTUALLY DISCUSS THIS SHIT FACE TO FACE. DRIZZY DOES KEEPS IT REALER THAN MOST AND I DONT EVEN FUCK WITH HIM LIKE THAT.

  • zeezeee

    Drake mad he wasn’t up for discussion

    • Guest

      You talking about him now though

  • THE REAL mac DIESEL

    SENSITIVE THUGS, YA’LL ALL NEED HUGS!!!!
    ……..HA!!!! IS THIS THE SAME NIGGA THT STOLE THAT GRAMMY FROM NAS LAST YEAR WITH THAT ADULT CONTEMPORARY ALBUM CALLED TAKE CARE??!!!
    SIDEBAR: ELVIS EVEN GOT THE JEWS ALL RILED UP!!!! HA!!!!
    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

    • Abe6772

      Drake isn’t a “thug,” good sir. He’s an actor turned rapper turned wuss

  • It’s Just Music

    Drake keeping it real. What Jay, Hov, Kendrick and Drake didn’t ‘tap’ into was that gay agenda Macklemore is pushing so damn hard to the public.

    I bet any money down if it wasn’t for Same Love and that promo stunt performance he wouldn’t have won.

    I liked Macklemore’s album, but his album was not better than any one of that list maybe except Kanye because he made some experimental shit.

    • Abe6772

      “Gay agenda?” You’re making it sound like he’s pushing homosexuality down ppl’s throat. He won because his music had a wider range of fans than Kdot. It’s about the “agenda” or race it’s about how popular the person is.

      • It’s Just Music

        but did he have a wider range if fans than drake kanye or jay?

        Especially Jay with 11 or 12 platinum albums?

        Or drake with most number 1 hit singles in billboard on rap or r&b charts? Also having his latest tour selling damn near 98.9% of ticket sells worldwide?

        Idk how Macklemore has a wider fan base than those three guys with one album.

  • minnie

    I don’t get how anyone could be a fan of this guy! You would have to be super overly sensitive to be able to relate, Drake is mad because his album Nothing Was The Same came and went. No one talked about your album for more than a week buddy! GKMC has been on the public’s mind and radar for a year and a half now! GTFOH with that “How come I didn’t get a text?” sh*t!

    • Abe6772

      Only females are his fans. And only females buys his albums

      • intelligentsoul

        only females are his fans? you say that likes thats a bad thing

        • Abe6772

          Good for his penis, bad for our ears

    • Michael Angelo

      as far as rap album.. not sure how drake was nominated over J Cole

    • wyndexfresh

      Nothing was the same will be an album that gets mad respect later like 808s watch

  • basedgenie

    trust him to be the one to complain about not receiving a
    text from another dude and to quote him “feel funny” about it… and if even if he did win over macklemore, kendrick, kanye and hov it would
    arguably have been an even BIGGER robbery because at least Macklemore
    raps consistently throughout the album and it is best RAP album afterall
    that we’re talking about.

    anyways Life is good >>>>>>>>>>>> take care

    • intelligentsoul

      Take Care had Drake popping for 2 years…Nas album was only good for hiphop fans

      • basedgenie

        a) doesnt make it a better RAP album
        b)Drake killing features had him popping for 2012 and also his tour…not so much his album

  • alex

    Macklemore is a bitch for posting that text and drake .. Drake always was is and will be a bitch.shut the fuck up and get over it soft fucker.

    • Abe6772

      Why is he a bitch, friend? I thought it showed that he didnt deserve that award.

    • Michael Angelo

      Macklemore & anyone with half a brain knows gkmc was album of the year.. album of the decade so far til outkast reunites imo

  • TeF

    Sooooo, Drake here is not necessarily assessing the unfairness of the Grammy’s choice, or the obvious media favoritism since he pandered to the Gay community and manufactures what white people like to consider safe rap, but he’s mad because he didn’t get a text message when he took the L. LMFAO. This nigga is Bounty soft. LOL. He is upset for the wrong reasons, no lie.

  • HIP-HOP

    Ol’ emotional ass nigga!

  • Abe6772

    Drake’s surrounded by yes men that filled his head with lies.

  • Matt

    Truth all day, niggas better not sleep on drake , I like drake over kendrick in a battle

  • ymcmbovoxommgcteisdownwitopp

    Drake is right. I don’t think he is wining, just his perspective. Mack shouldn’t have apologized, it was nice, but if Kendrick would’ve won no one on TDE would’ve been as humble.

    Mack tapped into things like thrift shopping, failing sobriety, and even a fresh and honest view on gay and lesbian marriage that no other rapper can do, and it connected.

    It was a nice gesture for Mack to say who he thought should’ve won but I can see what Drake is saying, anyone in those categories had great years and it is slightly back handed just to mention just K Dot.

    Drakes just honest.

  • HeruthaGod (Original N-G-R)

    I swear every time I try to give Aubrey the benefit of the doubt he keeps reassuring me why I just can’t fuck with him foreal, dude acts like he has ovaries

  • hasdu

    Girl bye!

  • Tristan

    This nigga has no place saying that cz macklemore was right to text only kendrick since no one elses album shouldve even been considered for best rap album over kendrick and drake of all people should not be talking at all because he has not made an album any where near GKMC he has 2 AVERAGE ALBUMS AND A GARBAGE DEBUT!

    • intelligentsoul

      dick rider alert

    • Michael Angelo

      kendrick had album of the yr.. next in line was J Cole > Yeezus > hov > nwts

  • sincereakilleez

    The fact the you single out Kendrick shows that Drake is butt hurt he wasn’t even in the convo . Nothing Was The Same still wasn’t beating MCHG so stop bitching. If he would just stop whining all the time and rap he’d be straight but he be havin these episodes, especially if it involves Kendrick

  • Oceans22

    If Ye said this y’all would co sign.
    In a heartbeat

  • Hip Hop Head

    He said that to Kendrick because he believe that Kendrick was #1…. not you.

  • AKbar

    all Macklemore did was show his THUG passion to all these dumb ass bumby no grammy nomination ass niggas. Ch-iRaq hold this L for bibby, young chop, reese coco puffs and the 300 breakfast gang

  • Wor

    Drake, you’re winning…No need to make comments like this

  • Belize

    Preach. Chuuch. Tabernacle.

  • TRASHMAN

    NOBODY CARES. ALL PARTIES INVOLVED ARE WEAKLINGS. WAKE ME UP WHEN LEADERS ARRIVE.

  • TRASHMAN

    I JUST READ SOME OF THESE COMMENTS. ALL YALL NIGGAS IS FAGGOTS. FUCK ARE YALL EVEN SAYING? DO YALL EVEN PAY BILLS? SMH….THE NEW HIP HOP. YALL WALKING DEAD. PERMANENT COWARDS. LOL

  • Tec1Nyc

    This new generation of ”rappers” are overly sensitive. Everyone crying for not winning or not even being nominated cuz there craft is wack. And these are the guys we call ”Leaders of the New School” smh

  • cokeboy

    Drake right about this, when I heard about the text I just cringed hard.

  • Chiraq

    The realest shit Drake said was that Macklemores apology wasn’t genuine..and it wasn’t I remember Macklemore saying u got robbed Kendrick. to me that’s a slap in the face. Mack shouda said that in this grammy speech early.he knew he only had 30 secs. Mack full of shit. And screenshot posting is some hoe shit

    • HIP-HOP

      Hoe shit is drakes music!

  • Rulez

    So salty, Macklemore was saying way before the awards he thought Kendrick should win so it did come from a genuine place even though it might not have been the best move. Drake salty cos he weren’t really in the conversation to win best rap album. Someone get this bitch a tampon, clearly on his period.

  • Shi

    Macklemore rap music is old school rap n it’s better than rapping about bitches n hoes etc… So Drake shut ur mouth n get back on top with the same ole shit all ur music sound alike. U need to switch it up!

  • REALLY23

    true

  • yorapper

    The reason Mack apologized to Kendrick only is because he thought he should have won it. Why would he apologize to Drake, Hov and Yee for? He didn’t think they should have won.

  • BK!!

    This CLOWN……
