Thank you Jack Hamilton. Thank you for writing this article. This is what I’ve been trying to articulate for quite some time. I would have no problem with Macklemore if his music was actually good. There would be no reason to complain but he’s just terrible.
And if I hear one more person say how great it was that he said Kendrick Lamar should have won I might vomit from now til kingdom come. If he truly felt he didn’t deserve the Grammy then he should have called Kendrick Lamar on stage and given it to him. The text message and the continuing to tell anyone who will listen that he’s upset that Kendrick didn’t win is only posturing. It’s all a show.
Macklemore is everything we feared Emimen would be.
