Macklemore Says Kendrick Lamar Got "Robbed" At The Grammys


(AllHipHop News) Weeks before the winner for the Best Rap Album Grammy award was even announced nominee Macklemore shared his belief that if his album The Heist beat out Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d. city for the prize Hip Hop would be “heated.”

Macklemore did win, Kendrick was completely shut out, and for the most part a lot of rap fans online were not too happy. Macklemore even recognizes that K. Dot should have walked away with a Grammy last night as well, and he apparently shared that feeling with Kendrick via text writing, “You got robbed. I wanted you to win. You should have.”  Mack uploaded a screen shot of the message to his Instagram page.

Earlier in the day, the Seattle performer also uploaded a text he received from Kendrick where the Black Hippy member acknowledges Macklemore’s hard work.

Macklemore won four awards during the night including nearly sweeping the rap categories with wins for Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Performance. He also picked up the trophy for Best New Artist. Kendrick Lamar was nominated in all four categories as well.

    i guess thats why the album is titled the heist. kendrick should have won that award 4 sure.

  • white power strikes haha

  • Black Jay

    Well ladies and gentlemen….. It’s the day after WHITE NIGHT. And y’all thought having a Black President could fix the racism in America. FAT CHANCE! If Macklemore was sincerely authentic in his disgust for the Grammys, why didn’t he do the manly thing and invite Kendrick on stage and present him with his trophy?
    Macklemore is saying Kendrick got robbed IN PUBLIC. But behind closed doors he’s doing cartwheels and thanking God for his skin tone. The Grammys can eat a dick for the foreseeable future.

    On another note…. I got up this morning and read about that Jigga diss (y’all n*ggas crazy if y’all thought I was gonna watch WHITE NIGHT). Jigga’s diss? CLASSIC!

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      i wonder who is more racist you or the gammys …?? hmmmmmmmm

      • Black Jay

        Hmmmmm….. Racist? Me? Do me a favor. Go to Huffingtonpost and see how many White hip hop fans are saying the same thing that I am. As a matter of fact, go to usatoday, mtv, and several others. I’m just real enough to speak the truth. I’m sorry if I stepped on your sensitive political correctness. The whole Grammy event was racist.

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        im sorry if i stepped on your sensitive political correctness … yall wouldnt no racism if it burned a cross in your yard !! yall worried about a black man winning a grammy when someone else obviously deserved it more … the grammys are about the ink black n white … not what you or i feel … now if macklemoore had a mediocre year then i would agree with you but that couldnt be more far from the truth …

      • Black Jay

        Okay…. Obviously you are a White dude and a Macklemore fan, so let me just say this….. As it pertains to racism, you don’t know anything about me or my experiences. So please, don’t further embarrass yourself by making stupid statements like that. Secondly, hip hop in the past was an art form dominated by Young Black Men. No disrespect to the White dudes, but that’s history. The Grammys have gone out of their way to shun and disrespect hip hop as an art form based solely on that reason.
        Nowadays hip hop has many cultural players. But it’s still dominated by Young Black Men. But look at who makes up the Grammy Board. Old White Men with no interest in establishing a proper judgment system that is set up by hip hop’s peers rather than old folks. This is the reason you continue to see results like last night.
        Now if you’re thinking us “Black Folks” are looking too deep into last night’s results for racism, let me give you some facts…..
        1. Most of the HIP HOP REVIEWERS AND MAGAZINES RATED KENDRICK’S ALBUM AND KANYE’S ALBUM BETTER THAN MACKLEMORE’S.

        2.The Grammys has a history of having hip hop artists “perform” during their events, but won’t consider them for any major awards unless they are on some crossover hybrid type level (what up Outkast). Translation: You’re good for the entertainment, but we don’t consider your music art.

        3. This year was especially WHITE. Not only did hip hop lose to someone undeserving because he was WHITE AND MORE ACCEPTABLE TO MAINSTREAM AMERICA, but the problem was compounded by the fact that no hip hop artist won unless they were attached to a White act (what up Jigga). Even with Pharrell he got his award based on another White act.

        Those are concrete facts dude. Call me racist all day. But last night was ONE OF THE WHITEST NIGHTS IN GRAMMY HISTORY I HAVE EVER SEEN.

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        obviously ?? makes me not even want to respond to your prejudgements … and i was born with brownskin last time i checked … im just a realist …

      • Black Jay

        Reply or not, I stated fact homie. Deal with it. And you assumed first by talking sh*t about racism. Can’t take it, don’t throw it.

      • Two_guns_Billy

        No you just want to pretend that this is a world filled with love and racism no longer exist…If you cant see whats going on here thats on you..

      • Bless

        Do you honestly believe that? smh

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        proof is in the pudding … now if Yelawolf was winning all these awards then yall would actually be saying something … but no one in hip hop popped of more than macklemoore did period … love him or hate him … he poppped off something crazy last year ….

      • brotha_man

        all im saying is u show mack love you gotta show childish gambino, action bronson, immortal technique, joey bada$$, danny brown, demigodz, chance the rapper some love too.

      • Bless

        I had to post a second reply to your post. You honestly believe that? At one point the grammys would’ve even air the hip hop segment on live tv, and many rappers including Jay Z at one point began boycotting them. I used to work in the industry and will be the first to tell you how how race based the awards are.

      • Two_guns_Billy

        Dude whites will always sell more than us because we are the minority..Vanilla Ice is still one of the best selling hiphop artist..

      • Two_guns_Billy

        Oh yeah if its about making noise 50 would have won one for “get rich or die trying”…

      • brotha_man

        no. speaking for myself its not about white or black. its about the white heads picking and choosing whats acceptable hiphop. why cats like skyzoo, brother ali, and others are getting there respect. IMO they try to treat hip hop like football they make sure they white cats are the ones being marketed as the face of hop hip and its a little disturbing. its not about hip hop because the grammys resent music and its foundation as a whole, however hip hop is the only genre that gets shitted on. im not saying make it a hip hop show, we already have that. im saying hiphop has good representatives and they are getting ignored.

    • True_Fan

      You’re on to something, he is publically playing that humble role so that he can become a bigger star. Remember how much taylor swift blew up after the Kanye interruption, its not apples to apples but it does apply. I mean he publicized their conversation, its all a ploy on his part.

      • Black Jay

        No doubt on that…. It’s politics of the worst kind. Kendrick has no choice but to go along with it because at the end of the day, The Grammys sh*tted on Kendrick. Not Macklemore. But that doesn’t mean that Macklemore isn’t happy and benefiting.

    • brotha_man

      i really like jay z the rapper pre- kingdom come. its something about him that bothers me now and it aint his business endeavors i love brothas and sistas making money…i dont know…..he just doesn’t seem authentic, not saying he needs to be all richard sherman or marcy projects……idk maybe im tripping *takes sip of coffee*

      • Black Jay

        You might have a point. Pre Kingdom he was down with Dame. Dame kept Jigga grounded to street level. But when Dame was released Jay made his play for the corporate world. He surrounded himself with businessmen. Not to take away from Dame, but he was more of an attack dog. It’s one thing to navigate the streets and hip hop. It’s another thing to navigate corporate America. The change is evident based on the moves Jigga has pulled off. It was bound to be a change if that was his play. But your point is legit and valid.

      • brotha_man

        i see where ur going with this

      • Antwon Grant

        He’s 44…maybe he grew up

      • brotha_man

        naw it aint that….he seems to be forcing his image. every body grows tired of clubbin, big booty video girls, etc. he wants to be a positive role model to his seed, i get that. its something else *takes sip of crown royal*

      • Celz

        The maple crown is fire bro lol

      • Black Jay

        I BELIEVE THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE ARE OVERLOOKING THIS HUGE POINT….. Jay Z is the first hip hop artist to make it into his 40’s and still be performing on such a high level. I mean think about that…. What other hip hop artist in history has ever done this? Run DMC did it but they weren’t on top of hip hop. LL did it but he on his acting sh*t and hasn’t seen the charts for years. Dr. Dre isn’t even performing on a regular basis.

        The reason Jigga seems to be moving differently and seems to have changed is because of the fact that HE HAS CHANGED. WE ARE SEEING OUR FIRST HIP HOP ICON AGE. We ain’t never seen that before. Rock & Roll has it. Country has it. But no one has ever seen a hip hop artist age like this. At the top of his game. Doing adult things. Hip Hop is mostly a young man’s game. So when you see Jay Z with the dime wife, sports team, and overall acceptance in corporate America, it looks strange as sh*t. But we all should be learning from this. Instead of the disses and jealousy (I’m not speaking to you directly) but we should all be taking note and documenting this. It’s strange. It’s weird. And this sh*t is so dope!

      • brotha_man

        Well said. Co sign 100 percent

      • superh8

        A sell out can never be viewed as authentic.the camel needs 2 go

    • Guest

      Geez give the guy a break – let’s reverse this sh*t…..a group of brothers win a metal album of the year above the all out favourites metallica….those mothafukas would go crazy like they own that sh*t haha it’s not a race thing it’s a commercial thing and white ppl go more commercial imo

      F*k the Grammys it don’t mean nothing it’s basically a pop awards ceremony the real rappers should just ignore it, I also couldn’t believe it when Mack won it but don’t expect the dude to hand out his first ever big trophy just like that, that’s just nuts!

      • Black Jay

        I hear what you’re saying but it’s not logical. First and foremost, I’m from the school of thought that believes if you see a racist act and you do nothing to stop it, you’re no different than the perpetrator. But okay…. Let’s give him the “my first award” argument….. Then why come out and POST YOUR COMMUNICATION TO KENDRICK if you’re not playing both sides of the fence? Macklemore didn’t have to do that. That kind of play reeks of politics and further inflames what everyone was already thinking. Racism. Macklemore gets beat up because he’s accepting an award he knows he doesn’t deserve AND trying not to get hip hop artists mad at him for accepting the award he knows belongs to someone else. Nobody’s taking away Macklemore’s accomplishments. But by accepting that award he’s sh*tting on the hip hop category. A category he should’ve never been placed in.

      • Hugo Calloway

        So why arent you mad about Drake being placed in that same category ?

      • Black Jay

        Who said I cosigned Drake? Drake is the softest rapper in the category. Forget being put into hip hop. He should’ve NEVER BEEN NOMINATED FOR ANYTHING!

        PS…. Nice try on that bait and switch. It didn’t work though.

    This is the exact reason I laugh when people put Eminem in their top 5. I give him top 15 at best. They just get pushed down your throat at the expense of better artist, just because their skin tone allows them to appeal to a bigger audience.

    • whoa

      Eminem was the testing case for what’s about to happen. It won’t be pretty.

    • johnblacksad

      Top 20

    • Antwon Grant

      The difference is Em is actually a skilled emcee..and any black emcee in the game will tell u that…

      • Guest

        No use arguing….I mean legend emcees of the game like rakim, scarface, kool g rap, treach, ice cube, krs-1 (to name a few) acknowledge Em as one of the best so I rather take up what they say than some of these wannabes who can’t acknowledge rappers because of skin color

        Look I can’t stand these white kids claiming Em to be the best when don’t know any other emcee, but to not acknowledge Em because of these fans is just ignorant and spiteful

      • Celz

        Eminem and yes even Macklemore have ridiculous bars. Definitely above average. But alot of the time when you have such an advanced flow your content suffers. That’s why Nas and Pac usually not always have a more basic flow because their content is more advanced. That’s why Nas and Pac are near the top of anyone’s top emcee list. And like someone said below Kool G Rap will destroy niccas listen to Giancanna Story. Planet Asia will destroy niccas, Ras Kass, Big L.. The list is deep bro. I give Em props he’s a great not a GOAT though his best material had virtually no depth what so ever and he fell off hard and fast..

      • Casor_G

        Forget them wack rap acts

      • Celz

        Macklemore robbed Kendrick but he still better than Chief Keef, French Montana, Future and a whole litany of lame ass niccas gettin radio spins..

    • chosenxeno

      Em is actually nice on the mic. His content might not be something you’re into but he can rap his ass off. What Em did was make music for “Ghetto Whites”(they exist lol) like “Street Niggas” make music for the streets. That’s why they defend him. He gave them a voice. That’s why very few White rappers have blown up after Em.

  • Obi Won

    Add this to the list of awards recent snubs,
    Drake>Nas
    Mack>Kendrick
    Still I don’t know if dude is serious, but in reality it sounds like he’s playing the wild card. If he says Kendrick got robbed, and hip hop fans are saying the same. Then we have something in common which smart on his part.
    If he genuinely believed it, especially being knowledgeable of this feeling before hand, he would’ve been prepared to give it to Kendrick ON STAGE.

    • Guest

      haha you guys are crazy
      I’m picturing an example of drake winning the grammys next year above Eminem….we all know drake is wack as 4k! what happens next….drake gives the award to Shady? No 4king way that brother brings out a song 2 days after the grammys on how his the king of rap! Hypocrites!

    • cetrata

      I don’t think grammys would have allowed transfer of awards. Also, K Dot would have preferred to get the grammy for his own album.

    • Hugo Calloway

      That wouldnt feel like appraisal. Thatd feel like poor boy, here you go.
      He shouldve got it outright, or not at all.

  • whoa

    Macklemore is lying, the simple fact that he chose
    to publicize what could/should have been a private message between two
    artists/friends after failing to acknowledge the fact while onstage
    winning the award, after proclaiming what his actions would be if he won
    the award all week tells you everything you need to know about this
    dude. All week he’s been telling us about this “honorable gesture” that never happened.

    • maya

      He;s telling the truth. I was watching it when it happened. It would have been tacky for him to be giving props to Kendrick Lamar while the shoo-off music was playing.

    If Mack would have said something, it would have been a good moment for hip hip n for fighting racism/discrimination but as always…..u know what happened n the excuses followed.. I’m not against whites but blacks need to stick up for one another n not allow everyone to infiltrate our ways of economics just cause they can mimic it.. classic example is eminem. He a decent rapper n had one good album mm lp but all the brothers n rappers rank him num1….nothing wrong with showing love but never love someone more than yourself <<<<<<think about it

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      its the f*cking grammys it aint that serious LOL smh LOL … yall want
      kdot to win because of skin color … so that makes you racist too …
      yall ignoring the fact that mackle actually made way more noise last
      year than kdot …kdot did great for a lyricist in HIP HOP … but as a
      whole as far as “music” goes … mackle laid it down in 2013 he crossed
      over … KDOT not so much altho he did great with in the aspects of HIP
      HOP …. it is what it is ……….

      • Troll_E_G

        No I wanted kdot to win because hes a better emcee n has a better Rap album….the category is best rap album not best crossover so stop making up reasons for the blatant bs

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        i can dig that my fault for trying to reverse the racism … im with yall 100%

      • Troll_E_G

        U shouldnt started it to begin with

      • Two_guns_Billy

        He made way more noise?When he’s a white pop star and the other guy is hiphop who do you think would make more noise?I dont think he should have won because he’s black but to not get one?I want color to not play a part in anything in life but you can clearly see it still does..I guess you will take notice when they stop inviting black hiphop artist.

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        i can dig it mane i def feel ya !!

      • chiboy773

        umm no, we wanted k dot to win cause he had a better album and he’s a better lyricist. That has nothing to do with skin color. Macklemore had 1 catchy song, his album was trash. Mack made a gay song and that what did it

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        3 catchy songs technically lol

      • Obi Won

        You made the point yourself homie. The Grammys isn’t a big deal, but it was at that moment. Like you just said your self, KDOT did great for lyricist in HIP HOP!!! The Grammy’s is so diverse in music, that seeing KDOT stand out would’ve been phenomenal. Not taking anything away from Mackle More, but it was kind of expected. Not from a racial view point, but from a listener view point. A kid from Compton winning a Grammy, would make a strong statement about Hip Hop and its reputation.

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        hey i feel ya outside of pushas album kdot def had my fave album of last year so i feel ya but im not that upset … i kind of expect it … especially being a nas fan thru out the 90s ….

    It’s simple. Kendrink is not YET part of their secret society. Plain and simple. Remember last night was Jay’s first Academy Award. He wasn’t part of their secret society, but now he is. Let’s break down this work “academy” –

    “academy (n.) late 15c., “the classical Academy,” from French Académie, from Latin Academia, from Greek Akademeia “grove of Akademos,” a legendary Athenian of the Trojan War tales (his name apparently means “of a silent district”), whose estate, six stadia from Athens, was the enclosure where Plato taught his school.”
    So no…Kendrick will not receive his “silent district” award, until he starts playing ball!

    • blameus

      True, but Jay’s been winning grammy’s for over a decade now. Starting with Best Rap album for Vol 2 waaay back in 99. I think he’s actually got around 20 or so. Kendrick was just straight up robbed, tho.

    U r 110% correct, eminem never makes sense in his rhymes but all these white kids use the internet more that real hip hop fans so they always online talking sht plus they’ve been tryna promote their own in hip hop for years so they always push em, it’s lyk APATHEID in South Africa, someone comes in your country and tryna say they better than u n try to take over.

    • Ace

      White people have always been jealous of hip hop but instead of them contributing and stayin humble they always try to take over shit when they’r welcomed somewhere. I e APATHEID South Africa. They didn’t have to think they were better than the natives to start treating them lyk animals they coulda chilled and worked together from the start but they always tryna put blacks down coz they think they superior, they apply that tactic in everything they do from politics, sports and music. Do you know jazz was invented by black pple? Hip hop if not careful will be forgotten as a black thing in future if nothing is done abt it. They always need collaborators from the otherside, all these black artists saying em is top 5 r jus tryna b politically correct and please the other side for financial reasons and that’s hw the takeover starts. Am not racist neither prejudiced but I jus happen learn from history. Don’t think they don’t want their pple to be world number one in golf, athletics, tennis, and the rest of sports. Remember they never want to b equal they think they superior, from the days of slave trade. It’s an idealogy they got

It’s a word by your pple so I spell it the fck I want.Look I don’t knw u but it’s clear u luck knowledge and u shallow or jus in denial coz u must belong to a certain sch of thought with the same idealogy. Look read America’s history,Asia’s, Africa, Australia, South America where you pple go you never want to share nor want to be equal u always want to think you better than those you found there and u tryna do the same shit to hip hop and gettn all these dumb black artists to make u sound legit by sayin “em is top 5” for financial reasons yet he never makes sense in his rhymes. His jus ok for a comedian rapper. Hip hop was not abt jus ryhming words and skill but it was a message, a voice against oppression. So now all the music execs r gettn these rappers to do dumb songs and diluting the msg so white rappers can have a level playing field coz they not deep enough to tlk abt the struggles(true fundament of hip hop) coz they had none and in doin so they voted the best in tlkin shit on a track with no deep meanin. But bottom-line we always a step ahead so wen that day finally comes wen hip hop has turned a white thing we shall have something new we call our own and the cycle will continue

    While I personally believe k Dot was robbed think about the songs Macklemore and the pop audience he garderened.. It’s pretty hard to ignore a song about equality not to mention gay rights? That alone.. I knew he’d clean sweep. I love his ALBUM! I love swimming pools & I LOVE Poetic Justice but originality counts and though poetic justice was an original song the concept came from the movie (small dissection). Macklemore raps but he’s pop, and he’s white so his audience is broader and his subject matter is relateable to popular audiences! Left up too me kendrick would of swept any category he was in simply because of what he did. He raised the bar. We need to have a black Grammys this is why hov and plenty others just don’t show up at times. We don’t.. We have shitty award shows, (my opinion) if we did things with a lil more class black and hiphop wouldn’t care so much about being robbed by the Grammys. But it’s stings nonetheless

  • Pretty wack that mackelmore won 4 awards that were @kendricklamar ‘s mackelmore sucks at rapping the Grammy don’t know shit about rap music

  • jus_sayin21

    Man cut the dude some slack… What more do you want him to do? He already has said Kendrick should have won. He said it both personally and nationally on Hot 97. That’s already more than he HAS to do.

    He EVEN said he won because he was white. What more do y’all want. He’s one of the few people who even acknowledges white privilege exist. Direct your hate at the Grammys not him.

    Y’all say his apologizing is self promotion but if it had been the other way around y’all would call it being honorable or exposing the truth. You may not like Macklemore’s music (Lord knows few of us do) but I don’t think he deserves to be put in the same category as Reagan.

      STFU.

  • Dan_Tebasco

    SMH at Macklemore, can people just stop sucking Kendricks dick for a second

    • Black Jay

      Sorry dude…. People not really mad at Macklemore so much as they are pissed at The Grammys. Wait a minute…. Macklemore accepted the awards, right? Correction….. People are mad at THE GRAMMYS AND MACKLEMORE. And it’s deserved like a motherf*cker. Lol!!!!

      • Hugo Calloway

        Just curious. Did anyone (black, white, yellow, purple) ever rejected a grammy ?

      • Black Jay

        Sinead o Conner, Ozzy Osborne, and Pink. All have declined the award.

  • $17637591

    Macklemore didn’t win because hes white….he won cuz hes pro gay. Whats really going on when they marrying all those Gay couples. That tells you what the Grammys agenda is so Of coarse he swept all the rap categories. Hip hop artist need to boycott those Racists awards. They win the white categories and the hip hop categories also. I DIDNT EVEN WATCH THAT GARBAGE SHOW.

    DETROIT HARD HEADZ

    “We” don’t BUY Albums. Whites buy Albums(Including the lionshare of Black artists records). Now apply that to A White Rapper with the right push. He is more “bankable” than any Black Rapper regardless of skill level(Vanilla Ice sold 15 million copies of his 1st Album). So if like a particular artist BUY their Album.

    That’s also the number 1 reason rappers “sell out”(or go for what makes money in what is a INDUSTRY!). They see who’s buying their Albums and filling up their venues and it’s not your black ass lol No dollars = no voice. Why would I listen to you? It’s not like you are providing monetary support.

    INB4 idiots start talking about gay conspiracies and other dumb shit *scrolls down* too late. It’s a numbers game and nothing more.

  • Truknown

    Scarface said that white jews already took over hiphop, and it aint nothing that black people can do about it. Black people never support each other, thats why every time we come out with a brand of music the white man moves in and takes it from us.

    • Ace

      The music execs got these black rappers rapping about shit that don’t mek sense jus to give the white rappers a level playing field coz white rappers can’t go deep and tlk about real sht coz they know none. In doin so they win awards coz it’s the black rappers who r tryna do wat white rappers r doin by rapping shit that dnt mek sense neither uplift anyone

    Macklemore shouldn’t have won. Kendrick Lamar neither… They released their albums in 2012..

    • taoisms

      GKMC came out 10.22.12 it missed the deadline for last years Grammy’s

  • TimeWillTellu1

    They will always do this with the truth.

  • If he felt bruh got robbed why he ain’t give him his we’ll deserved trophy? Bruh just tryna smooth things over after the robbery. That’s like raping a b**** skeetin in her and feeding her a morning after pill. insult to injury bulls***.

  • John Sangi

    Everyone know that Kendricks album was superior in terms of the substance and the quality in the material, no argument there! The people who voted on their ballads hardly know anything about hip-hop culture because they are mostly artist of a different genres, with that being said they most likely voted for the songs that they were the most familiar with and the people that wrote them. Why should Macklemore have to apologize & make excuses why he won? The guy got his awards by a majority vote end of story. I’m sure when Kendrick and Macklemore were filling out their ballads for best Pop artist, song etc they probably did the same thing and put a check mark next to one of the more popular songs.

    We all know the Grammys as a whole never really showed hip-hop the respect it deserves as an art form but thats not the artist fault. I think Macklemore s songs were corny & annoying but the guy dominated radio and thats why he won because people voted for what they heard most. People need to stop bitching and turning this into a race issue. Kanye West has something like 20 Grammys and I think his music in recent years has really sucked, In 1998 Puffy’s No Way Out (Good Album but not better than BiG’s LAD) won over BIGs Life After Death, in 2013 Drake won over Nas’ Life Is Good album and that was one of Nas’ best albums and way better than anything Drake has ever put out. END OF RANT

    Hope no one is losing sleep over this?
    It’s The Grammys…need I say more?
    And for those that don’t know, Eminem can’t fvck with Royce Da 5’9”
    Talking about Eminem is top 5…yea right

    One!

  • IsiahZeke11

    The grammy’s are and always have been super commercial and main stream folks… I wasn’t even surprised this year, just still disappointed that they continue to get it wrong purposely and repeatedly! They screwed over Nas last year giving the grammy to Drake, now they screw over another great lyricist in Kendrick, it’s basically nothing new! I have nothing really against macklemore, but his music doesn’t move me like that… I just give him credit/respect for the fact he’s done it independently with no major label.

  • Neither of these clowns deserved the award….
