Kendrick Lamar Speaks Out On Grammy Snub, Congratulate Macklemore
Kendrick Lamar was nominated for seven Grammys but went home empty handed. This prompted his fellow rapper Macklemore to send him a heartfelt message telling him he got robbed.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis took home four Grammy awards that night.
Speaking with XXL Mag, Kendrick Lamar says the Grammy should include more rap in the awards ceremony.
“It’s well deserved; he did what he did, man,” The Compton rapper said. “He went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, that’s how it go.”
“I definitely feel like they should always have more of the culture up in there, for sure, because we definitely stand out just like any other genre,” added Kendrick. “We part of the world. We part of the movement. So I think any awards, including the Grammys, should always push for more hip-hop because it’s music as a whole, it’s not just splitting different regions. Everything moves as far as sound and vibrations, and that’s how it goes. And we are a part of that.”
The West Coast rap sensation performed at the Grammys with Imagine Dragons.
