Kendrick Lamar is a rapper that is always wise with his words. You won’t catch him mouthing off and talking reckless in interviews like a lot of new jacks. Even after he was clearly snubbed at this year’s Grammy Awards, King Kendrick still gracefully addressed the situation. After making a guest appearance at DOM Kennedy’s New York City show, K. Dot told XXL that he holds no ill-will towards Macklemore or the Grammy academy. He didn’t cosign their actions but skipped out on shit talking. What a sportsman.

“It’s well deserved; he did what he did, man,” Kendrick said. “He went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, that’s how it go.”

And here’s him talking about hip-hop being undervalued at the Grammys:

“I definitely feel like they should always have more of the culture up in there, for sure, because we definitely stand out just like any other genre,” Kendrick said when asked if he thought the Grammys undervalued hip-hop. “We part of the world. We part of the movement. So I think any awards, including the Grammys, should always push for more hip-hop because it’s music as a whole, it’s not just splitting different regions. Everything moves as far as sound and vibrations, and that’s how it goes. And we are a part of that.”
