Macklemore just won Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Performance at the 2014 Grammys. Actor and avid hip-hop head Michael Rapaport was not too happy about this. His Twitter rant was a stand for "real hip-hop," as he refers to some of NYC's greats. Check out some of the tweets below.
While many people are outraged that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' The Heist won rap album of the year over Kendrick Lamar's good kid m.A.A.d. city, the two apparently are treating this as friendly competition. Macklemore Instagrammed a text message chain between himself and Kendrick, each congratulating the other for their success.
