This Week In Hip-Hop: Drake Addresses Macklemore, 'Drunk In Love' Remixes, Kendrick Lamar Performance and Kanye West Celebrates 'The College Dropout'

By Terri-Lee Taylor,

This week in Hip-Hop Drake addresses Macklemore's bittersweet comments about the Grammy's; Kendrick Lamar delivers another epic performance; Kanye West celebrates the 10th Anniversary of College Dropout and we have three remixes of Beyonce's "Drunk In Love."

After Macklemore's success at the Grammy's, the well-intentioned rapper sent a text to Kendrick Lamar relaying his bittersweet feelings towards the win. Since then, Macklemore has come under scrutiny for his decision to send the message, let alone share it with the world. This week, Drake comments on the message.

"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. 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?" says Drake in the February 27 issue of the Rolling Stone. "To name just Kendrick? That shit made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!"
