Proving that Drake and I share a connection that transcends merely him knowing I’m a good girl and him knowing that, I too, know this, the man has thrown some glorious shade on everyone’s favourite Conscious Cornball, Macklemore.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Drake reflects on Macklemore’s douchey apology text to Kendrick Lamar after he took out the Grammy win, stating that the whole thing was “wack as fuck”. Love you Drake…
“That shit was wack as fuck… 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 shit. To name just Kendrick? That shit made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”
My favourite part: “and if you feel you didn’t deserve it, go get better — make better music”. BURN! And TRUE! He really does articulate the whole situation really well. OWN YOUR SHIT Macklemore, and I don’t mean SHIT in a figurative sense.
