Kendrick Lamar Is All Class In His Response To Grammy Shutout

Everyone on Rap Twitter has had their say about Macklemore & Ryan Lewis bringing home four Grammys and Kendrick Lamar getting shut out. Macklemore even humblebragged about texting K-Dot to tell him good kid, m.A.A.d city should’ve won Best Rap Album over The Heist. But now Lamar himself has responded — and he doesn’t sound too broken up about the whole thing.

“It’s well deserved; [Macklemore] did what he did, man,” Kendrick told XXL recently. “He went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, that’s how it go.” 

As expected, the good kid was gracious. But, ya know, if there’s ever a sequel to “Control,” don’t be surprised if he name-drops the Grammy-winning Seattle MC.
