Macklemore and Ryan Lewis took the Grammy’s by storm last night.  They won: Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Album for their song “Thift Shop” and their album The Heist.  People were upset because lots of people feel like Kendrick Lamar should have won 1 if not all the rap awards, but are we really surprised. The Grammys always do this. Nas does not have a single Grammy.  At one point I wanted Kanye to pop out and Taylor Swift the situation! While K.Dot may not have taken home an award his performance with Imagine Dragons was amazing. Despite it  all we were all very disappointed.  Yes Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are talented and have done remarkable things like achieve mainstream success with an independent movement and no major label support, however in that rap category Kendrick deserved the award for what he has managed to do for rap.  Macklemore also texted Kendrick after his win and said this,

In other Grammy news (in case you missed them), Beyonce and Jay Z opened the show and performed “Drunk In Love” for the first time. Daft Punk won “Album Of The Year” and “Record Of The Year” for “Get Lucky.” Lorde Won “Song Of The Year” With “Loyals.” Best Rap/Sung Collaboration went to “Holy Grail,” Jay Z and Justin Timberlake and during the acceptance speech Jay said he’s going to use his Grammy as Blue Ivy’s sippy cup. Producer of the Year, Non-Classical: Pharrell Williams in addition to 3 other awards. Best Urban Contemporary Album: Unapologetic, Rihanna. Best R&B Album: Alicia Keys for “Girl On Fire.”
