Drake Calls Macklemore Wack For Apologizing To Kendrick Lamar


In the new issue of Rolling Stone, Drake makes clear his feelings about the text message that Macklemore sent to Kendrick Lamar the night he won in the bout for Best Rap Album. As blunt as it is, Drake thought “that sh*t was wack as f*ck.”

“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,’” he tells Rolling Stone. “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?”

The Canadian rapper knows all too well Grammy awards aren’t always garnered by the artist who made the greatest LP. “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 shit.”

    This fools bitter af and if you disagree you’re just as bitch made. He’s just mad macklemore acknowledged the quality of kendricks album.

    • fakit

      no, he’s just saying it was corny — which it was. this is hip hop and dude apologized for winning an award cmon son

      • Stfu

        Since when is this hip hop? Oh you mean the new hip hop where no one beefs with anyone anymore. Like the way Kendrick dissed Drake multiple times and Drake didnt fire back until months later with some wack shit. Drake might want to talk shit about white boy Macklemore, but he isnt going to do it to a real nigga like Kendrick. Drake is a bitch and hes the one who is “wack as fuck”. Sit yo ass down Drake, fucking with Macklemore isnt going to get your street cred higher.



  • liam

    Yo Drake he paid homage to Kendrick bc he believed he should have won that certain grammy. He knows the others wouldn’t have paid homage to him if he didnt win the other grammys. It’s wack that your questioning it in the first place.

    • fakit

      shut the fuck up

  • theBavarianIlluminati

    That’s funny because I call Drake whack because he’s just whack.

  • JP

    I guess since his text message didn’t resonate, he just said it here.

  • Henan

    Drake is the realest. Always telling the truth, no matter what.

  • wtfd

    What is he talking about almost everytime someone wins they say “those other albums were so good I’m glad I won.” Drake is just a massive bitch and a true asshole. He should just stick to makin records

  • Tyler Durden

    Too bad 10 years from now no one is gonna talk about this Shitbag !!!

  • Rigby

    This fool is still pissed a Kendrick because of Control so he’s tryna make it seem like GKMC wasn’t better than every Rap Album nominated.

  • Dave

    King said it as it is. the realest

  • Zander

    Paying homage is one thing, but did Macklemore have to post the pic of his text? It makes the acknowledgement seem less genuine which is what Drake’s getting at.

  • BrianRaider

    I Can See Where Drake Is Coming From. I Think Kendrick Deserved To Win. Drake & Jay Had Stellar Albums Also!
