Good kid, bad committee…
Although many of us saw the writing on the wall a long time ago, the Jordan sneaker-wearin’, gay rights rapper, Macklemore, swiped all the Grammy’s in the rap category from who most consider the rightful winner, Kendrick Lamar.
Prior to the show, Macklemore posted a screenshot of a text convo he shared with the good kid on Twitter.
Apparently after the show (and an OUTSTANDING performance from Kendrick) the Seattle “rapper” felt remorse over the fact that he had taken something so valuable away from the Compton spitter and sent him another text.
Flip it over to have a look.

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
