Macklemore Doesn’t Think He Should Win Grammy for Best Rap Album


Breakout artist Macklemore had a phenomenal year in 2013, having scored seven Grammy nominations for his work with Ryan Lewis and now is being named Man of the Year by The Source.

The singer’s seven Grammy nominations include Best Rap Album and although fans think Macklemore should win, he himself thinks his main competition Kendrick Lamar may deserve the win.

In an interview with The Source, Macklemore reveals: “In terms of [that category], I think it should go to Kendrick. He’s family. TDE is family, and I understand why Hip-Hop would feel like Kendrick got robbed [if he didn’t win]. I’m not trying to compare albums; I think you can make an argument for both. With that being said, I am a huge supporter of what Kendrick does.”

Adding: “And because of that, I would love to win in a different category. We obviously had massive success on commercial radio, and I think that, in ways, The Heist was a bigger album, but Kendrick has a better rap album.”
