He thought Lamar should have won...
Macklemore has posted a text on Instagram that he sent to Kendrick Lamar after he beat him in all three rap categories last night at the Grammy Awards. The text was sent after Macklemore won for Best Rap Album for The Heist instead of Lamar's Good Kid, MAAD City. Macklemore also beat Kanye West's Yeezus and Drake's Nothing Was the Same. He also won for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for "Thrift Shop" and performed "Same Love" with Madonna in a segment that saw over thirty same sex couples get married on stage.
Macklemore wrote: "You got robbed. I wanted you to win. You should have. It's weird and sucks that I robbed you. I was gonna say that during the speech then the music started playing during my speech and I froze."
