One of the most talked about topics from last night’s Grammys was Macklemore’s sweep of the rap category as well as his Best New Artist award, which many felt belonged to Kendrick Lamar. The award for Best Rap Album, in particular, ruffled many fans’ feathers with a large majority believing Kendrick’s good kid, m.A.A.d city deserved to win over Macklemore’s The Heist. On today’s The Morning Show with Peter Rosenberg, the HOT 97 host called Macklemore himself to get the rapper’s opinions on what went down. Echoing comments he made prior to the show, he stated plainly “I feel like K.Dot got robbed” and went on to explain why he thinks his “unfair advantage” allowed him to come up big with four awards.
Following the Grammys, Macklemore also shared a screenshot on Instagram of a heartfelt text he sent Kendrick Lamar in which he again made it clear that he believed Kendrick should’ve won.
