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.
