Rap sensation Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis cleaned up nicely at the American Music Awards but it doesn’t look like the Grammys felt the same love (Get it?).
According to an unnamed AP source, the rap committee of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences tried to disown Macklemore & Ryan Lewis from their awards categories.
“Most” members of the rap committee felt that the “Thrift Shop” and “Same Love” duo shouldn’t qualify for rap nominations “because of their success on mainstream radio and their appeal in the pop world.”
Yeah right, Mackelmore will still be cleaning up at the Grammys. The duo is up for 7 awards uncluding best album of 2012. Good luck bro!
