Kendrick Lamar Not Bitter towards Macklemore for Grammy Loss
Just a few days after he somehow managed not to win even a single award at the Grammys, Kendrick Lamar finally broke his silence to address the issue.
The MC out of Compton was nominated in seven different categories at last Sunday's event and was widely expected to lift multiple trophies. But in a shocking development, the 26-year-old went home empty-handed, as his smash hit album "Good Kid, M.A.A.D City" lost out to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "The Heist" in the Best Rap Album category.
While many thought he should have won instead of the "Thrift Shop" hitmakers, Lamar doesn't have any real problems with the decision. In a recent interview with XXL, he said: "It's well deserved; he did what he did, man. He went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, that's how it go."
In the latest edition of the Grammys, the rap and hip hop genres didn't feature prominently, with only three performances coming from MCs. Lamar's was one of them. Talking about the limited stage time given to artists from his genre, he said: "I definitely feel like they should always have more of the culture up in there, for sure, because we definitely stand out just like any other genre.
"We part of the world. We part of the movement. So I think any awards, including the Grammys, should always push for more hip-hop because it's music as a whole, it's not just splitting different regions. Everything moves as far as sound and vibrations, and that's how it goes. And we are a part of that."
