Social media erupted into a frenzy after Macklemore and Ryan Lewis walked away with the Grammy for Best Rap Album…
Because most were saying that Kendrick Lamar's breakthrough set of tracks, good kid, m.A.A.d city should've snatched the win!
It was an official award show Heist…and even Macklemore thought so!
So that's why the rapper texted an official apology (above) to his industry pal—agreeing with fans that Mr. Lamar should've taken home the trophy!
He captioned the screen grab of his heartfelt text on Instagram:
"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.. 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"
Besides this rapper's unexpected win—we're continually boggled by the fact that he has 1,133 unread texts!
Congrats on all the Grammys, but get on to getting back to people! Ha!
