On this morning's episode of "The Realness," Peter Rosenberg discussed Drake's comments in Rolling Stone about Macklemore's text message to Kendrick Lamar after winning the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Rap Album for The Heist.
As we previously reported, Macklemore posted a text message he had sent to Kendrick on his Instagram account telling the Black Hippy emcee he should have gotten the award for "Good Kid, M.A.A.D City," instead.
Drake told Rolling Stone that Macklemore should have kept that to himself and posting the text came off looking insincere.
"That sh*t was wack as f*ck. 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 guys would pay homage to you if they won? 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 sh*t."
Rosenberg says Drake is all up in his feelings because Macklemore didn't acknowledge his Nothing Was The Same album.
"[Drake's] opinion was tainted by the fact that he's really just salty that [Macklemore] didn't big up his album," Rosenberg said.
Is Rosenberg right? Is Drake mad because his album got overlooked at the Grammys and by Macklemore?
