Drake Disses Macklemore At ESPYs

July 17th, 2014 6:03pm EDT
Drake
Drake still hasn't gotten over losing a Grammy to Macklemore.

Back in January Macklemore and Ryan Lewis reigned over the rap category at the Grammys, much to the chagrin of fans of the genre. Many believed Kendrick Lama should have won many of the awards, and suggested that race may have been a factor in the decision.

Macklemore sent a text to Kendrick Lamar and made the odd decision to take a photo of his text and share it with his fans. It read: "You got robbed. I wanted you to win. You should have. It's weird and sucks that I robbed you. I was gonna say that during the Speech. Then the...

Macklemore Responds To Critics Calling Recent Costume 'Anti-Semi
Grammy winner Macklemore has released a statement defending himself after critics claimed a costume he performed in was anti-Semitic.

Jewish actor Seth Rogen was among the many who bashed Macklemore for appearing at a Seattle event to perform in disguise. The costume consisted of a black beard, a giant nose, and a bowl-cut wig. You can see the costume in the video below. Rogen tweeted:

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Macklemore won four Grammys last night, but he texted pal Kendrick Lamar to let him know he should've won at least one.

The rapper texted Kendrick soon after the Grammys ended, "You got robbed. I wanted you to win. You should have. It's weird and sucks that I robbed you. I was gonna say that during the Speech. Then the music started playing during my speech and I froze. Anyway, you know what it is. Congrats on this year and your music. Appreciate you as an artist and as a friend. Much love."

Macklemore then posted a photo of his text to Kendrick on Twitter with the caption, "My text to Ke...

Macklemore
"Thrift Shop" singer Macklemore is hoping to finally one-up childhood rival Justin Timberlake at Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards.

The Macklemore & Ryan Lewis rapper, real name Ben Haggerty, spent years in the shadows of Timberlake after the "Suit & Tie" singer bested him numerous times throughout the beginning of their careers.

But Macklemore isn't bitter -- he plans on thanking JT if he wins any of the five awards he's nominated for at tonight's ceremony.

"Justin and I have been competitive for years... It started out as a basketball rivalry, hot dog eating championship, where we ...

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's latest single, "Can't Hold Us," has set a new Billboard Hot 100 chart record.

The single, which features Ray Dalton, is the second track from the duo to hit number-one, making them the only duo in history to top the chart with its first two singles.

The rappers spent six nonconsecutive weeks at the top of the charts with "Thrift Shop" (featuring Wanz) earlier this year, and have ousted P!nk's "Just Give Me A Reason" from the top spot.

The duo's third single, "Same Love," is currently at Number 83.

The top ten is rounded out with Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors," R...
