Drake on Macklemore's Kendrick Lamar Apology Text: That S--t Was Wack as F--k!

by at .  Updated at .

Many people were impressed by Macklemore texting Kendrick Lamar to say that he just robbed him of Best Rap Album honors at the 2014 Grammy Awards.

Drake was not one of those people.

The Canadian rapper-crooner, who was also nominated in that category, spoke with Rolling Stone about Macklemore's gesture, declaring, "that s--t was wack as f--k."

His reasoning behind that view?

Drake was nominated for his album, Nothing Was the Same, but didn't receive any text after Macklemore & Ryan Lewis took home the prize for The Heist.

Macklemore texting Kendrick Lamar may have seemed cool to some fans, but "To name just Kendrick? That s--t made me feel funny," Drake continued.

"No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!" Drake said, adding that he felt any sort of apology from the duo was unnecessary.

Macklemore Text

"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.'"

"It felt cheap. It didn't feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those other guys would pay homage to you if they won? Own your s--t."

Nominated along with Macklemore, Lamar and Drake were Kanye West and Jay Z ... so we sort of see Drake's point, however nice Mack was trying to be.

In his slight defense, Macklemore and Kendrick shared text messages before the show, hyping each other up, so they have a good, existing relationship.
