Kendrick Lamar Responds To Macklemore's Grammy Win For 1st Time


(AllHipHop News)  Kendrick Lamar could be infuriated with his 0 for 7 performance at this year’s Grammy Awards but you would never know it. In his first response to his Grammy snub, Lamar says Macklemore deserved to win Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance.

While talking with XXL after last night’s (January 28th) Dom Kennedy show, Lamar attributed Macklemore’s work ethic, not his race, to his success but also alluded to anticipating future success for himself:

It’s well deserved; he did what he did, man. He went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, that’s how it go.

While Lamar was understanding of the Grammy’s choice in regards to Macklemore’s wins, he does believe the award show should include Hip Hop a bit better.

We part of the world. We part of the movement. So I think any awards, including the Grammys, should always push for more hip-hop because it’s music as a whole, it’s not just splitting different regions. Everything moves as far as sound and vibrations, and that’s how it goes. And we are a part of that.

    True Hip Hop robbed again.

  • The Legendary Troll

    sounds like a politically correct response to make sure he gets a grammy next year. That nigga know he wanted to say hell yeah I was robbed

  • i’mreloaded!

    I know dat chit hurt him to say dat but real music lovers and hip hop heads around the world know who really won. Macklemore may have the hardware this year but that only fueled Kendrick’s grind and in the end he will have a long career. Macklemore will disappear in a matter of a few months once he puts out a wack single nobody wants to hear.

    I said, Elvis Presley ain’t got no soul (huh)
    Chuck Berry is rock and roll (damn right)
    You may dig on the Rolling Stones
    But they ain’t come up with that style on they own (uh-uh)
    Elvis Presley ain’t got no soul (hell naw)
    Little Richard is rock and roll (damn right)
    You may dig on the Rolling Stones
    But they ain’t come up with that shit on they own (nah-ah)
    Guess that’s just the way shit goes
    You steal my clothes and try to say they yours (yes they do)
    Cause it’s a show filled with pimps and hoes
    Trying to take everything that you made or control (there they go)
    Elvis Presley ain’t got no soul
    Bo Diddley is rock and roll (damn right)
    You may dig on the Rolling Stones
    But they ain’t the first place the credit belongs
