Fabolous Doesn’t Think Macklemore Is Overrated

Earlier today, Fabolous was a guest on ESPN’s First Take and became the latest rapper to weigh on in Macklemore. According to Fab, he’s a fan of the Seattle-based artist and thinks he makes “great music” and disagreed with the show’s live audience chanting “overrated” while the panel discussed the former XXL Freshman. On the contrary, Loso wasn’t surprised that Macklemore swept the Grammys, and claims “commercial” music is often favored by the award show’s committee. Watch the debate above.

    Fab said the truth here. Fab, 50 Cent haven’t won a Grammy based on the music they make compared to WackLemore talking about current affairs. But I know some people who don’t know Fab will say ”he tryna play it cool, he wanna feature, LBGT will kill Fab” and shit but if 50 Cent hasn’t won a Grammy (under his name, not by being a feature) after millions of songs sold and being at the highest popularity status, then the Grammy’s aren’t our thing. Fabolous even said on the VMAs “I dont know why people get shocked every year when they realize the MTV VMA’s isn’t for “US”…

    The Grammys are about tradition and respect and the most musically radio friendly artist. Folks that don’t win Grammys but have huge selling records are usually foul mouthed, vulgar, profane and violent, Something the Grammy doesn’t usually respect. A lot of huge selling artist doesn’t deserve a Grammy, they’ll get the American Music Award basted on sales. The Grammy is not about sales, it’s about tradition and respect for the tradition of radio friendly music.

      The Grammys ain’t about no goddamn respect…the Grammys are about what’s “popular in the “culture” of contemporary music. It has nothing to do with artistic integrity or any of that shit you are trying to perp…but you are right about one thing…it is about the most musically “friendly” artist, NOT the most creative or profound artist…Kendrick Lamar’s should have won on his lyricism and creativity alone…GTFOH!!

        king ken will never win b/c he don’t smoke crack he sell it. I know people like u don’t want to respect the truth. But the research don’t lie. No one with violent and profaned muzik has ever won no matter how good they are to U. and pro never will. They have a place for that. But it anit the Grammy’s

          yeah cuz Jay-Z, Eminem, Lil Wayne, Ludacris, Dr. Dre, has never won a grammy. Oh wait, They have….. Eminem, Lil Wayne and Dre catalogue are much more profane then Kendrick Lamar’s is. And if you look into history there is rock acts who are even more profane who has won the award. Do you even know any of Kendrick’s lamar music or are you just talking out of your ass? Either way, stop it, your making a fool of yourself
