    Rapper Macklemore may have racked up at the Grammys but he says he didn’t deserve one of his awards. Who did he say should’ve won “Rap Album of the Year” on Instagram?

    What’s up guys?  I’m Emerald with your PopSocial News Update.


    Mackelmore proves although that rap feuds might be more public, rap brotherhood is alive and well too. 


    The artist cleaned up almost all the rap categories at the 2014 Grammy awards, including “Best Rap Album.”  But Macklemore didn’t exactly believe he deserved all four of his Grammy’s.  He thought Kendrick Lamar deserved the Grammy instead.  And like any good rapper he let his voice flow—this time via text.  Macklemore Instagrammed his text to Kendrick saying “you got robbed…I wanted you to win… you should have.”  Macklemore admitted he thought Kendrick should have won for Album of the Year.  And though he didn’t want to take anything away from his own, he wanted to give credit where credit was due.  Macklemore reportedly told the Hot 97 morning show that winning was a blessing and a curse—a little more of a curse, because he never wants to be the person that causes someone else to get robbed. 


    No matter who won or lost, looks like these guys will be celebrating their successes together for a long time.  


    And that’s your daily dose of pop culture and social media news.
