Hip-Hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who are nominated for 7 Grammys tonight, have already won three awards in the pre-telecast, sweeping the entire RAP category.
The group won Best Rap Album for “The Heist,” an album they created without the help of a record label, and Best Rap Performance & Rap Song for “Thrift Shop.“
Now the duo’s big Grammy wins have left a bad taste in some Twitter users mouth, whom all took to their Twitter accounts to voice their disgust, claiming Grammy officials snubbed Kendrick Lamar. An award Macklemore wanted the rapper to win.
Check out the Tweets below (courtesy of Young, Black & Fabulous):
Macklemore. Again, I don’t understand his appeal or how he’s won all of these awards over legit rappers. His music isn’t even real hip hop! Also, what the f–k is a Ryan Lewis?
Feel some type of way about Macklemore winning best rap album over Kendrick, Jay-Z and Drake
A Twitter user then shared the below photo… as you can see there was some favoritism going on too:
But honestly, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis deserved that award. They got themselves out there on an independent label. They are some of the most influential people in the industry right now. So what if you don’t like that kind of music? They are good at what they do and deserve every award they have been given.
