Last night at the Grammys, Macklemore won Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song. After the show (and after a lot of complaining from hip-hop fans), Macklemore took to Twitter and Instagram to share the text he sent to Kendrick Lamar. “You got robbed. I wanted you to win,” starts the text. Macklemore explains that he was going to say something during his acceptance speech, but he froze. See his original text and read his Instagram explanation here.
So what did Kendrick say back? We’re not sure, beccause Kendrick hasn’t Instagrammed his own text and shared it on his social media outlets. So we used our imaginations. Here are the things that Kendrick Lamar could have texted back to Macklemore.
