Drake Has Choice Words For Macklemore

GRAMMY robbers and all my fav GRAMMY award winning rapper Drake made his feelings VERY clear in the new issue of  Rolling Stone hitting stands this Friday about how he felt about Macklemore publicly advertising his apology to Kendrick Lamar after he and Ryan Lewis' snubbed him basically at this year's GRAMMYs.

"that shit was wack as fuck." 

"I was like, 'You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn't deserve it, go get better — make better music,'" he tells us. "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 notes that Grammy wins don't always go to the artist who made the best album. "This is how the world works: 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 shit." 
And in the end, if Macklemore was going to start doling out apologies, he should have reached out to more nominees, Drake says. "To name just Kendrick? That shit made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!"

Can't we all just get along...
