Macklemore drew a lot of ire from the hip-hop community for posting a screenshot on Instagram of his apology text to Kendrick Lamar for taking the Best Rap Album win at the 2014 Grammy Awards. List Drake under that list of detractors.
Kendrick Lamar is still the people's champ. The Compton MC won your vote for Hip-Hop Artist of the Year in The BoomBox Fan Choice Awards. The "good kid" earned 36.71 percent of the votes and beat fan favorites Drake and Eminem by a margin of over 14 percent.
This is part of the reason why winning a Grammy is such a big deal. In addition to acting as validation, a Grammy win or performance can lead to a sales boost in the weeks following the ceremony. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are the latest artists to reap the rewards.
George Zimmerman isn't hiding from the negative public attention in the wake of Trayvon Martin's death and is instead deciding to take advantage of it. He's been looking for an opponent for an upcoming celebrity boxing match, and while Kanye West was his choice, DMX has come forward to face off against him.
You can debate Drake's authenticity, but one thing that's hard to debate about him is his versatility. He can succeed in many genres, whether it's hip-hop, R&B ('Hold On We're Going Home) or pop ('Find Your Love'). But the question remains: Can he do bachata? OK, that's not really a burning question, but it's nice to know he is decent in that area. The Toronto rapper connected with Bronx, N.Y.'s Romeo Santos for 'Odio' -- which means Spanish for hatred.
Jay Z left the Grammys with a brand new "sippy cup" for his daughter Blue Ivy. That's because he took home the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration with 'Holy Grail' -- a Justin Timberlake collaboration off 'Magna Carta Holy Grail.'
Justin Timberlake made a splash when he returned from a eight-year hiatus with 'Suit & Tie,' and he continued the buzz with an extravagantly produced video for the song. Two platinum albums and almost a year later, it's time to reap the awards.
When it comes to Juicy J, good things come to those who wait instead of simply twerk. Last year, the former Three 6 Mafia rapper announced he will be awarding a $50,000 scholarship to the female with the best twerk video. He later broadened the rules to include applicants who could show him they deserved it the most.
