Drake Calls Macklemore's Apology to Kendrick Lamar "Wack As F-ck"

Drake was not feeling Macklemore's post-Grammy apology to Kendrick Lamar.

In case you missed it, after winning Best New Artist over Kendrick, the "Can't Hold Us" rapper sent him a text that said, "You got robbed. I wanted you to win."

And then he proceeded to post the message on Instagram.

Not only did the social media post rub a ton of people the wrong way, but Drake--who he also beat out for Grammys--had some things to say about the incident after it went down.

"That sh-t was wack as f-ck," Drake told Rolling Stone. "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?"

Macklemore also beat out Drake for the Best Rap Performance Grammy, as well as Drake, Jay Z and Kanye West in the Best Rap Song category, and Drake, Jay Z, Kendrick and Kanye for Best Rap Album as well.

"This is how the world works: He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick," Drake continued.

"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."

Drake wasn't done sounding off just yet though.

It seemed like Kendrick was the only person Macklemore felt deserved the awards, which the "Take Care" rapper felt was a diss.

"To name just Kendrick? That sh-t made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!"

What do you think about Drake's rant?
