Here’s a #latergram for Macklemore: Drake thinks the Can’t-Be-Holden star’s choice to post his private apology to Kendrick Lamar for taking home the Best Rap Album Grammy last month on his public Instagram was not a little bit of humble, little bit of cautious.
More succinctly, “that s— was wack as f—.”
“I was like, ‘You won. Why are you posting your text message?” Drake tells Rolling Stone in their current issue. “Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn’t deserve it, go get better — make better music. 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?”
“This is how the world works,” he went on. “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 s—.”
Also? Spread it around, Sir Wacklemore. “To name just Kendrick? That s— made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”
