    Macklemoore won best rap album... Can't say I'm surprised but fuck am I disappointed.

  • TEKESTE

    Burn these fuck page right now.

  • fuck awards ceremonies

    at the end of the day it doesn't matter how many awards macklemore gets, he won't make the same cultural impact that kendrick makes with a verse let alone an album

  • fuck awards ceremonies

    but the allah pharrell won best producer and for get lucky so niggas weren't completely cheated

  • Mah

    King Kendrick.

  • Zach

    Macklemore is doing amazing things for the world though, just the fact that he made "Same Love" is enough reason for anyone to at least respect him

  • AudialFuture

    Yo I'm a bit pissed too, but I think Macklemore has his own way of making a cultural impact. (Same Love anybody?) On the other hand, his music isn't "traditional rap music" so the win is a bit out of left field. I do think Kendrick should have definitely won the Rap award because he also makes a strong cultural impact and raps 1000x better than Macklemore. But I guess the Grammy's wouldn't still be hot if they didn't surprise us every now and then. :P

  • thib

    oh god why i just... wow kanye west shouldve been there to run up on a nigga fucc it lol

  • http://Greyskull.us/ Greyskull.us

    Then give him a fuckin nobel peace prize, not best rap album. The fact is hip hop fans dont listen to Macklemore.

  • Com_Truise

    You took the words out of my mouth.

  • Com_Truise

    Rap Music got snubbed.

  • SERFBORT69

    false.

  • Jesse Harrison

    YEEZUS FUCKIN CHRIST!

  • Com_Truise

    Kendricks performance though! That was sick!

  • klint

    Pharrell & Stevie killed it until the camera started zoomin in on clowns dancin. Nobody cares abt steven tyler doin the mambo number 5

  • Guest Nigga

    Next we'll have Flo Rida and Mr Worldwide competing for Album of the Year. Cause it's the Grammys baby, why not right?

  • MAX

    How wrong are you??

    OVER 9000%

  • MAX

    Mackalemore is more of a Pop Rapper and he'll make more of a difference because he talks about more real stuff than Kendrick Lamar does. Plus, Kendrick is waaaaay less likely to have any kind of backwards bigot listen to him.

  • Herrmann Hinz

    gesperrt durch gema, gesperrt durch grammy...

    bombe hass panzer pimmel arsch sau molli mukkiebude!

  • Marcus

    The grammys been fucked up ever since Christopher Cross won over Pink Floyd.

  • lord quas

    haha so fuckin true !

  • lord quas

    they don't understand there are different type of "rap" here they are just blessing the new pop rap made by white for white

  • Fabio

  • Steph Jones

    HAIL KING KENDRICK LAMAR... That perfomance tho

  • gangstablng3

    LOLOL RIGHT macklemore has the best rap song performance and album ... the grammys prove theyre a joke

  • thib

    more real my ass bruh

  • fuck the grammys

    BEYONCE'S NIPPLE POPPED OUT

  • I think that they both will make a cultural impact nonetheless. It doesn't matter about the grammies either way. They both make good music. Kendrick is most definitely a better lyricist and a hip hop artist but Macklemore also makes good music in his own way. I don't think hip hop is the genre but that's why a genre is too restricting. Macklemore even said that Kendrick got robbed after he won.
