 After winning Best Rap Album during the 2014 Grammys (along with  wins for Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song),  Seattle native, Macklemore, took to Instagram to post a screenshot of a  text message he sent to fellow Best Rap Album nominee Kendrick  Lamar, expressing that he felt Lamar was robbed of the title. Rapper  Drake, who was also nominated in this category, did not take kindly to  Macklemore’s gesture, however.

 The Canadian superstar, who was nominated in the Best Rap Album  category and three others, found Macklemore’s text to be disingenuous,  telling Rolling Stone writer Jonah Weiner “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?”

Drake went on to comment that Grammys aren’t necessarily given to the best musicians, but rather the musicians who can make the most popular music and reach out to the biggest audiences. He also felt that if Macklemore felt the need to dole out apologies, he should have sent a similar message to the rest of the nominees in the category as well, adding: “To name just Kendrick? That sh*t made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”
