Drake Blasts Macklemore's Post-Grammy Apology to Kendrick Lamar, Wants His Own 'Sorry' Text

“Take your W, and if you feel you didn't deserve it, go get better — make better music,'” Drake told Rolling Stone

A few weeks removed from the Grammy Awards, and Macklemore's sore winner apology to Kendrick Lamar is still bugging a third rapper who was in contention for the Best Rap Album trophy.

Drake told Rolling Stone magazine that Macklemore's text-message apology to Lamar, which the former also posted on his Twitter account, was ”wack as fuck.”

“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,'” Drake told the magazine. “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?”

Immediately after the January awards show, Macklemore pinged Lamar to say that the Compton emcee deserved the trophy over the Seattle rapper, who walked away with a ton of gold on Grammy Sunday. Lamar left the show empty handed. In the text, Macklemore apologized to the “Good Kid, m.A.A.D. City” artist and added, ”I wanted you to win.”

Drake thinks Macklemore is being a combination of too hard on himself, and more offensively, publicly patting himself on the back for being the bigger man.

“This is how the world works: He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick,” Drake told Rolling Stone. “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 shit.”

Also, Drake sees it as a slight to the rest of the categories contenders. Those nominated in the Best Rap Album category were Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lamar, Drake, Jay Z and Kanye West.

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

The issue of Rolling Stone hits newstands on Friday. The Grammys aired on Jan. 26.


    Drake is an unclean a**hole. He didn't win because his “dope rhymes” weren't really that dope.


      I think you are just a hater without brains…..

      • Ty Logan

        Actually to say that Drake's “dope rhymes” aren't really that dope takes intelligence and wit. Those without brains are the dipshits who listen to his soft ass garbage you call music…

        • bachampion

          and macklemore is hard? just shut the fuck up

          • Ty Logan

            When did I say Macklemore was hard? And don't tell me to shit the fuck up when you're safe behind your little computer desk with no repercussions. This is the comments thread either engage in conversation or prove my point that only dipshits listen to Drake. Save the tough guy act unless you are face to face with me

  • paul

    Fuck drake and Fuck macklemore they both suck.


      fuck you Paul….You are just so fucked !

  • Andy Genova

    Drake is mostly right. If Mackelmore thought the guy was robbed, then why by the stolen property? Why accept the award? Why not shout out during the acceptance speech and leave it at that? To privately send the guy a text, then blast it over twitter, it comes off as disingenuous.

    With that said, for Drake to play the race card is equally offensive.

  • Kevin

    Macklemore has class..Where as the Niggas got none…as usual..Nigga please!


      Fuck you kevin….Class is what he doesn't have

  • Eric

    He only apologized to kendrick because Drake, Kanye, and Jay-Z put out shit albums this year.


      Dude define a shit album…..Knucklehead!

      • Ty Logan

        A shit album = Yeezus, Magna Carta Holy Grail, and whatever Drake raps on

        • r1g8p7

          Drakes music isnt great its barely ok. Hes famous becuase he hangs with Lil Wayne. Drakes music is all starting to sound the same. At the most he only has maybe two or three songs on his whole album(s) that are good.

          • tay24rebirth

            to say he's only famous because he hangs with lil wayne is the most stupid thing a person can say. whether you like his music or not, that's what he's famous for, HIS music. There are plenty of people who hang with lil wayne that isn't famous. that's a hatred statement.

          • Joshua Spearin

            Drake is only famous because he was one some gay TV show about high school. He started pretty far from the bottom.

            A hatred statement… What are you, fucking retarded?

            Hahaha yes sir

      • Ty Logan

        A shit album = Yeezus, Magna Carta, and anything Drake does. I'm an old school Hip-Hop head who grew up with Run-DMC and Whoudini and evolved into Rakim, Nas, PE, Poor Righteous Teachers, A Tribe Called Quest, NWA, Kool G Rap, EPMD, Big Daddy Kane, KRS and eventually Wu-Tang, 2Pac, Biggie, RA the Rugged Man, Cypress Hill, Alkaholiks, Atmosphere, Living Legends, Redman, and Em (just to name a few). Macklemore makes dope music, but can't stand the way the guy looks and dresses. That's just my old school mentality. I can't stand the skinny jean nerdcore hipster swag look. Having said that, Kendrick is dope, but the rest of these guys: GTFO here. I'm tired of the Drakes, 2Chainz, French Montanas, and Waka Flakas getting record deals. That's not being a HATER either. This is someone who has lived and breathed this life for decades who knows the difference between a gem and a piece of plastic. We all have opinions, but at the end of the day garbage music and over-inflated egos will be exposed. I know which side I'm on.

  • Fuck New School

    macklamore won best RAP album? get the fuck out. drake is mad because his limelight is fading. kanye is beyond overrated/WHACK as fuck, and jay-z is washed up. Hail to the oldschool

  • Ronald Parker

    Dis guy da drake,a breed of duck, is a foul mouthed disgustuing nothing.His people,da blks,need to flush him and all like him.

  • TIT

    I think Mac knew he won the category based on his ability to reach the apex from grass-roots beginnings, but knows that Kendrick Lamar lyrically sits on top with Eminem for being a clever, well spoken, lyricist, hence the apology to only him. I can't hate on the other artist because they are there for a reason, whatever reason!

  • Lame

    What an idiot. Mac’ texted a fellow nominee to say what he thought which was that Kendrick should have won which given his own preference. That's it.
    I like Drake, but he should get his head out of his back-end.

  • King Of America

    @ Ty Logan…Are you serious?? You call yourself Old School and categorically list a plethora of Rappers to give yourself some sort of credence but you leave Jay off of the list??? In the same list that you have Nas, Biggie and Pac??? Haha…I get your type. You're just one of those old washed up old farts that probably still dresses like it's “Da 90's” (for reference look at your pic) with some extra baggy clothes on…I bet you're wearing a long ass White Tee right about now…LOL!

    • Ty Logan

      Gotta love these internet thugs who talk tough over a computer. So lemme get this straight, I list a plethora of rappers to try and get credence and you're mad cuz I leave off Jay? Yeah your credence goes right out the window right there fella. Jay hasn't made a decent album since Blueprint 2. You can disrespect me over the internet all you want but I'm not a washed up old fart who wears extra baggy clothes and long white tees. Nobody in the real world talks like this to my face for a reason but I wouldn't wanna try and list all the “tough guy” reasons why. That would be what, corny? I'm sure you're in your moms basement right now trying to pull your sisters jeans off so you can jerk off to a Beyoncé video but yet you hate on real dudes. Silly shit man. Let's see you post yourself on here

      • Ty Logan

        King of America? Haha. I bet you're a corny ass skinny jean wearing lil swaggot. Where's your face so we can all judge and laugh

    • Joshua Spearin

      I like how your problem is that he didn't list one overrated turd. YOU CAN'T BE A REAL OLD SCHOOL FAN UNLESS YOU LISTEN TO WHAT SOME AUTISTIC 12 YEAR OLD THINKS IS OLD SCHOOL!

      • Ty Logan

        Ha I know right!!

  • King Of America

    Do I have to list Jay's albums and Kanye's albums?? Magna Carta Holy Grail and Yeezus were two of the DOPEST Hip Hop Albums dropped last year. Even Eminem (who is one of my favorite MC's and in my TOP 5 list) dropped a wack ass album…what a disappointment that was.

  • King Of America

    @ Ty Logan Leaving Jay off of your list of rappers takes away all of your credibility. The man has been running circles around rappers since 96's Reasonable Doubt and has moved through 3 DECADES of Hip Hop and is STILL ON TOP OF THE GAME in every category! To exclude him means you basically exclude yourself having a real conversation about Hip Hop.

    • Ty Logan

      I'll give you Reasonable Doubt, In My Lifetime Vol. 1-3, and The Blueprints but c'mon I'm not the only one who thinks he overrated. Leaving him off my list doesn't take any credibility away, it means I don't conform to mainstream ideals. And Kanye is a douche, period. Yeezus had 2 good songs out of 10. I am entitled to critique those garbage ass albums because I was stupid enough to pay for them

      • Ty Logan

        Do me a favor though, I'll keep it respectful if you do as well. No need to question my credibility as someone who knows about real Hip Hop, if you spent 5 minutes with me you'd know

  • JK821

    Rap music shouldn't be up for a Grammy anyways. Fuck a Grammy

  • deezzz nutz

    drake… you a bitch degrassi high half niggar

  • bkbroiler

    he's a one trick pony. in one,maybe two years he is forgotten forever. anyone that has to ask for praise is a loser. name one star or decade long band that begged for recognition. exactly! they all earned it! loser. Philip Setnour Hoffman had more talent in his pinkey finger than this dipshit will have in a lifetime.

  • MWX3

    I can feel what Ty Logan is saying. There is no need to disrespect each other. I grew up listening to hip hop starting in the mid 80's. As I listen to a rap artist lyrics today, I've got to say that the music has taken a turn for the worst. There is no real substance in music today. There were and still are a lot of issues and values that meant something to past artists but that mentality is gone. To be real I think Kendrick Lamar can bring that same performance level and mentality back along with some more of today's artist but again I do agree with Ty Logan- Today's rap is garbage.

    • Ty Logan

      Thank you sir. Much respect to you

  • Knight2night

    I can't believe what passes as “music” today. Learning to play a guitar, keyboard or any musical instrument is replaced by self aggrandizing and crotch grabbing. ” Drake has dope rhymes.” That's because he is a dope. And, I got news for you. If that is what you call music, your a dope too.

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

    Fuck Drake. Untalented, egocentric fuck. Rolling Stone didn't give you the cover for a reason, you fake, sell-out pussy. It's funny that these 2 new rappers show so much more character than this washed-up, never-was (I'd say has-been, but you'd have to have been good) piece of shit who sells Wal-Mart hits. Dumb, rich, half-white canadian kid starring on TV has never been anywhere near the bottom, fuck Drake and his fake bullshit. He's about as hard as Liberace's dick in the Playboy Mansion. This motherfucker softer than shit after Taco Bell. This fake gangster so soft, he's the before half on a Cialis commercial. Drake's so soft, they'd make pillows out of him if people could get over the smell of Lil Wayne's jizz that fills him.. Drake looks at Soft Serve and thinks, damn you hard. Drake makes marshmallows look like diamonds.

    Get the point? Drake is a pussy punk bitch who can't even make music. He's there to entertain (poorly), why do we give a fuck about his opinions? Bitch should just shit back, crap out weak lines over shitty beats, and just shut the fuck up.

    • Ty Logan

      Hahaha I'm rollin. Soft as Liberaces dick in the Playboy Mansion bahahaa. I'm glad people are FINALLY seeing this bitch for who he is. I never got what the big deal was from the beginning. And I always said “started from the bottom? Bitch you from upper middle class Canada.” Good post my dude
