The 56th Grammy Awards which took place at the Staple Center on the 26th of January saw the likes of Daft Punk, Lorde and Macklemore dominating in major categories.
After winning the award for Best Rap for their album ‘The Heist’,social media went up in arms voicing their views on how Macklemore was undeserving of the award and that Kendrick Lamar got robbed.
After the awards, Macklemore made the public aware that he too felt that Kendrick Lamar, who’s hitting our South African shores soon, was robbed and deserved the award and not him.
In the caption of an Instagram post, Macklemore writes, “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.”
What do you think of Macklemore’s apology? Was it necessary to publicise his apology to K.Dot? Was it necessary for him to even apologise?
