Drake recently spoke on his thoughts regarding Macklemore and Kendrick Lamar Grammy situation saying “that was wack.”

"I was like, 'You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn't deserve it, go get better. Make better music,'" Drake says in an interview with Rolling Stone. "It felt cheap. It didn't feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won?"

Drake says Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' wins at the Grammy Awards were an example of "how the world works." "He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick," Drake says. "Whether people wanna say it's racial, or whether it's just the fact that he tapped into something we can't tap into. That's just how the cards fall. Own your shit."

Macklemore's text message to Kendrick Lamar also made Drake feel "funny" because he felt the sentiments should have been extended to more people. "To name just Kendrick?" Drake says. "That stuff made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages."
