“My text to Kendrick after the show,” he wrote. “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.. With that being said, thank you to the fans. You’re the reason we were on that stage tonight. And to play Same Love on that platform was a career highlight. The greatest honor of all. That’s what this is about. Progress and art. Thank you. #grammys”
Macklemore, sensing that the hippity hop loving voters who are huge fans of The Dougie and all of the Will Smith records got it horribly wrong when they awarded himself and Ryan Lewis all of the hip hop gongs they were nominated for at the 56th annual Grammy Awards last night, has quietly turned himself in at the internet sheriff’s office for successfully performing The Heist on a trio of awards rightfully belonging to fellow nominee Kendrick Lamar, the deserved winner according to Macklemore’s Instagram account, this Grammys prediction post and anyone who knows anything about hip hop.
In the wake of the win, the rapper took to his personal Instagram account to assure everyone on the internet that they weren’t the only ones who thought that a middle of the road song and album featuring the transportive lyrics “I wear your granddad’s clothes // I look incredible // I’m in this big ass coat // From that thrift shop down the road” beating out the most stacked field in hip hop category history – Drake’s Nothing Was The Same, Jay-Z’s Magna Carta…Holy Grail , Kanye West’s Yeezus and the deserving winner in Macklemore’s estimation, Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, M.A.A.D City – to win Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song belongs in the same pantheon of fucks up as that time Catherine Zeta-Jones won the 2003 Best Supporting Actress Oscar over Kathy Bates, Julianne Moore, Queen Latifah and Meryl Streep. An awards show error that makes us feel terrible inside. But not as weird and terrible as he feels.
