Kendrick Lamar has finally responded to Macklemore’s post-Grammy apology, saying he believes it was genuine.
“That text surprised me, but Macklemore is a genuine dude,” Kendrick said in an interview with Billboard. “However it panned out, I wish him much success. He touched people’s souls, and no one can take that away. Really, the whole Grammy moment was incredible. Not everyone gets that shot.”
The entire hip-hop world felt Kendrick had been robbed when Macklemore won the Best Rap Album award at the Grammys, with Macklemore sending Kendrick an apology text which he shared on Instagram.
