    Macklemore beats out Jay Z and Kanye West for best Rap Album of the Year

    Source:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/0...n_4652854.html

    Macklemore's "The Heist" won Rap Album of the Year, over Jay Z and Kanye West.

    1. Does he deserve it? Did he win it just because of the color of his skin?

    2. Have you heard it yet? It's really good, I bought the deluxe edition.

    Here's one of my favorite songs off "The Heist".

    I didn't particularly like either JayZ or Kanye albums. Save for maybe 1 or 2 tracks.

    But the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis one was more enjoyable.

    Didn't some asshole on worldstar or youtube make a video rant about how white people suck because Macklemore won?

    Racist idiocy aside, I think the album is decent. I don't listen to rap like I used to back in high school, but I can still appreciate hard work. Good for him.

    What about the other offerings? We need to compare the one that won with the ones that didn't but were nominated.

    I am guessing MAcklemore is a white guy.

    Yes ... he's a white guy.

    The offerings weren't much ... like most mainstream music.

    Not surprising, personally i think kanye and jay z stuff isn't as good as it used to be. They play the stuff on the radio and some of the lyrics are just laughable. Just my opinion though

    I'm very glad Kanye West lost to him. That makes me happy.

    Lol this seriously won Rap album of the Year? Man how the genre has fallen hard....

    Not that Jay-Z or Kanye winning would be any better.
