Disney Channel rapper Macklemore got his hands around four Grammy awards last night including Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song, Best New Artist and Best Rap Performance, and many hos screamed about the INJUSTICE of it all. Many didn’t like that Macklemore won over Kendrick Lamar and they tweeted death threats at Kermit the Frog’s long-lost rapping half-human brother. Yeah, I know Macklemore’s album sounds like an all-hip hop album from The Party (Note: Let’s kick the ballistics. That is the greatest compliment you can give to a rapper), but it’s not that serious. The Grammys are a joke, but tweeting a death threat at a trick for winning a Grammy is even more of a joke. Anybody can win a Grammy (see: Baha Men)!
But because Macklemore wants to be everybody’s best fweeend and wants everyone to know he’s the good guy of good guys, he Instagrammed the text he sent to Kendrick Lamar where he admitted that he shouldn’t have won Best Rap Album.
Macklemore went on to explain to his fans that his Grammy Award should really be in Kendrick’s hands:
“My text to Kendrick after the show. He deserved best rap album… I’m honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys. But in that category, he should have won IMO. And that’s taking nothing away from The Heist. Just giving GKMC it’s proper respect.. With that being said, thank you to the fans. You’re the reason we were on that stage tonight. And to play Same Love on that platform was a career highlight. The greatest honor of all. That’s what this is about. Progress and art. Thank you. #grammys”
Bitch, then invite Kendrick Lamar over for some tea and give him your Grammy then. Macklemore admitting that he thinks Kendrick’s album deserved to win is nice, but Instagramming the text he sent is some attention whore shit straight out of Pimp Mama Kris’ playbook. The whole “but the music started playing” excuse is no excuse. Jacqueline Bisset would laugh at that excuse, but I think she’s still onstage at the Golden Globes accepting her award. When the music starts playing, that’s not your cue to shut up, that’s your cue to talk louder while not giving a fuck.
Besides, it’s just a Grammy. It’s not a prestigious award like Barbizon’s Most Improved Male Model (preteen division) and yes, I’m still mad at losing that award even though I was the only boy in the class.
