Macklemore & Ryan Lewis swept the Grammys Sunday night! They one a total of four awards that night. Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for Thrift Shop” and Best Rap Album for “Heist”

The duo also won Best New Artist. The biggest upset of the night! The world was stunned that fellow nominee Kendrick Lamar didn’t take home the golden trophy. Well, Macklemore felt the same way.

Macklemore sent Kendrick a text stating that  “You got robbed. I wanted you to win. You should have. It’s weird and it sucks that I robbed you.” Kendrick’s highly acclaimed album , Good Kid, m.A.A.d City, was nominated in several categories but won nothing.

Mackelmore posted the text on his instagram with the caption, “My text to Kendrick after the show. He deserved best rap album… I’m honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys. But in that category, he should have won IMO. And that’s taking nothing away from The Heist. Just giving GKMC it’s proper respect.. With that being said, thank you to the fans. You’re the reason we were on that stage tonight. And to play Same Love on that platform was a career highlight. The greatest honor of all. That’s what this is about. Progress and art. Thank you. #grammys.”
