Macklemore Says Kendrick Lamar’s “Good Kid, Maad City” Should Win Rap Album Of The Year

(AllHipHop News) An artists probably cannot get a better endorsement for winning an award than having one of his fellow nominees announce that their work was the best. That appears to be the case with Kendrick Lamar’s nomination for the “Rap Album of the Year” Grammy.

Kendrick’s 2012 critically acclaimed major label debut album good kid, m.A.A.d. city is up against projects from Jay Z, Drake, Kanye West, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and according to Macklemore, K. Dot should take home the trophy.

“In terms of [that category], I think it should go to Kendrick,” Macklemore shared with The Source. “I’m not trying to compare albums; I think you can make an argument for both. With that being said, I am a huge supporter of what Kendrick does. And because of that, I would love to win in a different category. We obviously had massive success on commercial radio, and I think that, in ways, The Heist was a bigger album, but Kendrick has a better rap album.”

Macklemore made the cover of The Source’s current issue. The publication named the Seattle-based rapper as its “Man of the Year.” While he has earned that title from the long running Hip Hop magazine, Macklemore expresses his belief that rap fans may not be too accepting of his The Heist taking the rap album Grammy over Kendrick’s GKMC.

“We’re up against Kendrick, who made a phenomenal album. If we win a Grammy for Best Rap Album, Hip Hop is going to be heated,” states Macklemore.

Besides facing off in the best rap album category, Mack and K. Dot will also compete for the coveted “Best New Artist” and “Album of the Year” awards as well.

The Source‘s January 2014 issue featuring the cover story with Macklemore is available now.
