Rapper Kendrick Lamar is finally responding to the text that Macklemore sent him following this years Grammy awards.

In a recent interview with Billboard magazine Lamar addressed the text that he was sent and the media firestorm that it set off. "That text surprised me, but Macklemore is a genuine dude. However it panned out, I wish him much success. He touched people's souls, and no one can take that away. Really, the whole Grammy moment was incredible. Not everyone gets that shot," said Lamar.

The text message caused many reactions from the music industry and fellow rapper Drake was very vocal about how he thought the text message was cheap and was not genuine.

Lamar took over the Grammy stage and the charts when he teamed up with Imagine Dragons for a mash-up of "Radioactive." Fans have been wanting more music from the rapper and in the interview he explained that fans can be looking out for a new record in September of 2014, Pitchfork reported.

Also on his upcoming schedule includes headlining this year's Pitchfork Music Festival.
