For the first since Sunday, Kendrick Lamar has responded to Macklemore’s win. The star was nominated for 7 Grammys, four of which Macklemore took home.

While talking with XXL after last night’s Don Kennedy show, Lamar had the following the say about Macklemore’s win. 

From All Hip Hop: 

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