After being nominated for 7 Grammy’s in one night, we all assumed that Kendrick Lamar was going to walk away with one award. Unfortunately, the TDE front man walked away without any awards. What he did walk away with is a world-wide agreement, that he had the BEST performance of the 56th Annual Grammy’s. Even though Yonce’ and Jay Z opened the show, it still didn’t shock the world as Kendrick’s mash-up with Imagine Dragons.
Hands down Macklemore cleaned house in ALL of the Rap categories, including ‘Best Rap Album’ for ‘The Heist’. With the success of Kendrick’s ‘Good Kid M.A.A.D City’, every just assumed that K Dot was a sure win; everyone including Macklemore. After the award show, Macklemore reached out to Kendrick via text to say how shocked he was that he lost to him.

Captioned with, “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“.
Later, Kendrick replies to Macklemore.
Captioned with, “While the world debates… This is what we’re on. #grammys”
