Macklemore believes one of his competitors was robbed at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.

The Thrift Store rapper shared his feeling about the Grammys on Instagram. Macklemore said his competitor Kendrick Lamar was robbed of the best Rap Album award.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis won four awards including Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song, and Best New Artist, while Lamar went home empty-handed.

After the awards show, Macklemore sent a heartfelt text to Lamar. The Compton rapper was shut out of all seven of his categories.

“You got robbed. I wanted you to win. You should have. It’s weird and sucks that I robbed you,” Macklemore said. “I was gonna say that during the speech. Then the music started playing during my speech and I froze. Anyway, you know what it is. Congrats on this year and your music. Appreciate you as an artist and as a friend. Much love.”

Macklemore Text

Macklemore posted the text on Instagram, along with the following note:

“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.”

Lamar has not responded to Mackelmore. Nor has he addressed losing in all categories, but he was a part of what some consider the best performance at the Grammys. If you missed it, watch it below.
