There has been no shortage of discussion around Macklemore‘s contentious Best Rap Album Grammy, beating out Kendrick Lamar‘s crowd favourite, the unimpeachable good kid, m.A.A.d city. This was seen as a robbery by many with an interest in rap, including Macklemore himself. He shared this sentiment in a fairly magnanimous text message to Kendrick, opening with “You got robbed.” But, then, he also undermined the selflessness of the gesture a little by sharing a screen grab of it on his Instagram in an act of humblebraggadocio.
Melbourne stand-up comic Aamer Rahman, one half of duo Fear of a Brown Planet, brings us an artist’s recreation of how the conversation may have continued. Who knows – maybe this very message is sitting as a draft on Kendrick’s phone.
