Victorious Macklemore To Kendrick Lamar: It Sucks That I Robbed You

Posted on January 27th, 2014 at 10:15 am

mack2Even Macklemore himself was shocked that he and Ryan Lewis beat out Grammy favorite Kendrick Lamar for "Best Rap Album" during Sunday's big ceremony.

So much so that he texted the rapper - whose good kid, m.A.A.d city was expected to take home the award -- to tell him how bad he felt that he robbed him of the trophy.

Macklemore -- whose real name is Ben Haggerty -- posted the text that he sent the 26-year-old to his Instagram.

The 30-year-old wrote to the accompanying post: "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"mack
