Tonight at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, hip hop was definitely the most buzzed about genre of the show. The battle between Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Kendrick Lamar was trending on social media. After the show, Macklemore took to instagram to show the message he sent to Lamar. Take a look at the pic below:

In the caption on instagram of the screen shot, Macklemore explains he felt Lamar got robbed of best rap album.

“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”



Earlier in the day, Macklemore and Kendrick Lamar had another text message exchange before the big show. Check out both exchanges below:
