Drake Slams Macklemore Grammy Text: ‘We All Need Text Messages’

macklemore that grape juice she is diva that grape juice Drake Slams Macklemore Grammy Text: We All Need Text Messages

Last month, ‘The Heist’ performer Macklemore made headlines when issued an apology to rival Kendrick Lamar, doing so via a text he later went on to publish here.

What he apologised for? Beating him at the 56th annual Grammy awards, dominating categories many believed would be ‘owned’ by the ‘Poetic’ rapper.

Unfortunately, the pair’s mutual rival Drake hasn’t taken too kindly to the apology, billing it ‘weak’, ‘cheap’ and calculated during a recent interview with Wenner‘s ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine.

More below…

On the matter, he explained:

“I was like, ‘You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn’t deserve it, go get better—make better music. It felt cheap. It didn’t feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won?”

“This is how the world works: He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick. Whether people wanna say it’s racial, or whether it’s just the fact that he tapped into something we can’t tap into. That’s just how the cards fall. Own your sh*t.”

“To name just Kendrick? That shit made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”

Ouch.

What do you make of Drake’s remarks?

    DRAKE, GIRL, YOU ALREADY HAVE A GRAMMY, AS DOES JAY, AND KANYE. HENCE WHY KENDRICK WAS THE ONLY ONE TO GET A MESSAGE. HE HASN’T WON AND HE WAS A FIRST TIME NOMINEE. SHUT UP AND PROMOTE THAT ALBUM SOME MORE.

    I completly understand what Aubrey is trying to say here, it’s true when you think of the bigger picture, I just think macklemore felt the pressure of winning all those awards over legendary acts… while I do think he maybe deserved one grammy, he certainly wasn’t deserving of ALL awards

    Drake makes a good point when he said Macklemore just made music more people connected with. If I won a Grammy I wouldn’t be sending out text apologies. He worked hard and he won. Kendrick has plenty of time to win a Grammy.

    As far as this whole matter. GET over it. It’s old news now. Move ON! Chile…

    People be so salty over the silliest things. Make music cuz u like to make music. Not cuz ur looking for a Grammy. I much rather have people buy my albums and make money than a Grammy anyday.

    @ Yea OK

    You are right. I would rather have people buying my music than a Grammy too.

    Look at J.Lo never won a Grammy but is like a $250 millionaire. And Britney Spears too, and she won a Grammy only because of the production work or something of the like for “Toxic.”

    Album sales can equate to a lot more than a Grammy, but I do think being able to say you are a Grammy award winning artist can boost ticket sales and longevity, etc.

    I can’t stand Drake but i agree with everything he said.
    Macklemore comes across as a publicity-hungry samaritan wannabe.

    LMAO,

    Just read Drake’s response… Feels like Drake thinks …knows he is a better rapper or artist than Macklemore!

    A bit salty, but funny nonetheless!

    Macklemore **knew** he didn’t deserve those awards, and that he would be called out for winning over better rappers with better music, so he was trying to avoid a public backlash by calling the sh!t out himself. It was calculated. At the end of the day, I doubt it was genuine on his part.

    Macklemore KNEW he didn’t deserve that s***, but I expected him to win anyways since the Grammys voting committee are just filled with basic white men with the most horrid, vanilla taste in music.

    Macklemore put those Kendrick texts out because he felt that Kendrick should’ve genuinely won.. It’s that simple. He probably felt guilt about it, because Kendrick has a classic album. Macklemore has a great album also. They touched on topics outside of the cliche ones.. There was nothing cheap about what he did..

    oh yeah the grammys are so not into giving black people awards. sorry but lets call a spade a spade. lauryn hill, norah jones, john legend, alicia keys, beyonce… which one is white? also the year alicia cleaned up for songs in a minor her biggest competition was india.arie and nelly furtado. over the past decade and a half the grammys have absolutely pandered to urban music. i don’t care. grammy’s don’t even matter anymore. but lets not pretend that the grammys are racist. macklemore got the grammy because grammy voters don’t understand that one record on an album doesn’t make the best album. same love was a fake ass attempt at crossover success and it worked. the message (though not particularly genuine in my opinion) resonated with even non rap fans. kendrick should have won based on skill and content but he wasn’t heard by as many people. kanye is a misanthropic d*****, jay z released an album that most def wasn’t his best and drake is beyond wack. it made the vote easy. macklemore is likable and more often than not, that’ll win you a grammy over an asshole with a superior album.

    I gotta say: I agree with Drake. When I saw that he posted the text, I felt, Y show us? that is between, u & Kendrick, and DRAKE made another valid point: u robbed them ALL, they all do deserve texts! haha, MANKLEMORE is cool, I like him a lot, and repesct his hustle, BUT he didnt deserve ALL the awards-JUST MY OPINION! I love them all, honestly, but damn, he is HIP-POP, not HIP-HOP (huge difference)

    I agree with what Drake said. Macklemore didn’t need to apologize for winning something he has no control over. Kendrick is a better rapper but Macklemore is great too and his album was just as good. Macklemore has a more commercial sound but that shouldn’t discredit the content of the music he puts out. He deserved those wins in my opinion.

    Drake acts like a female. You didn’t deserve anything. Though I didn’t respect Macklemore for releasing the messages I do respect the fact that he knew he shouldn’t have won. He didn’t own it because he didn’t deserve it. Drake would’ve owned it because he’s a narcissistic prick.

    Drake is such a drama queen. She’s just bitter because she knows she didn’t have a chance in hell to win that Grammy. Macklemore is from Seattle and his humility caused him to send out that text message.
    Drake needs to get his basic ass back to his D-list show on Canadian television and stop pretending he EVER had a tough life.

    Macklemore had no business winning those Grammy’s. Even he knows they were undeserved and totally bogus.

    I think if Rappers were doing real rap all this jealous and animosity wouldn’t be happening… instead of rapping about the same old white tees and jordans and bling bling and clubs and b**** and h** then maybe they could talk… There is very limited few very limited few who actually care about the state of the world and society and who are about lifting one another to a higher place instead of ignorant uneducated booty popping s***!!! RAP needs a wake up call

    It felt calculated because it WAS. This dude is so fake, left, right, and center. And I saw an old tweet where he used derogatory terms for gays.
