AP Source: Macklemore didn’t submit latest album to Grammys

NEW YORK — Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, the mainstream rap duo that swept the rap Grammys in 2014 and received backlash after besting Kendrick Lamar, didn’t submit their latest album for contention at the 2017 Grammy Awards.

A person close to the nomination process, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not allowed to publicly talk about the topic, said Macklemore & Lewis didn’t submit “This Unruly Mess I Made” when submissions were due last September.

The album, the group’s second, was released last February. Like Macklemore & Lewis, Frank Ocean also didn’t submit his two latest albums for Grammys.

Representatives for the rap group and the Grammys, which will be presented Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, didn’t immediately reply to emails seeking comment.

In 2014, Macklemore & Lewis won best rap album for their multiplatinum debut, “The Heist”; best rap song and rap performance for the crossover pop hit, “Thrift Shop”; and best new artist.

The group almost didn’t compete for those rap honors after the Recording Academy’s rap committee felt the duo should compete for pop awards instead because of their mainstream breakthrough, which included No. 1 successes with “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us.” Another single, the same s*x anthem “Same Love,” peaked at No.11 on the Billboard Hot 100.

But that decision was later overturned, and Macklemore & Lewis went on to win big in the rap categories, beating out Lamar, who walked away empty-handed that year. But drama ensued a day after the Grammys when Macklemore said Lamar’s “good kid, m.A.A.d city” should have won best rap album instead of “The Heist.”

The Grammys spectacle was at the center of the group’s latest album title — called “This Unruly Mess I’ve Made” — and Macklemore was part of the conversation about contemporary white artists appropriating black culture, along with Iggy Azalea and Miley Cyrus. On “White Privilege II,” from “This Unruly Mess,” Macklemore raps about a white person’s position in society with black people f*ghting injustice, and even namechecks Azalea for appropriating black culture, along with himself.

“This Unruly Mess” didn’t make a splash on the charts or on streaming platforms like “The Heist.” It only sold 382,000 units (based on a combination of album sales, song sales and on-demand audio streams) according to Nielsen Music. (”The Heist” sold a combined 4.3 million units). The album’s first single, “Downtown,” did reach No. 12 on the Hot 100 and featured Eric Nally, Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee and Grandmaster Caz.

Nominees for this year’s best rap album include Drake, Chance the Rapper, Kanye West, De La Soul, DJ Khaled and ScHoolboy Q.

I have no beef with Macklemore. He's a stand up guy. I'm just happy he didn't submit the album because it would have automatically won all of the Rap Grammys categories () for some unexplainable reason.

Dude won Grammys from some sh*t I don't even remember a single line from one year later. If that ain't the definition of pop, I don't know.

I think submitting the album would defeat the purpose of making it since it was centered around winning the Grammy. And it was actually one of the better Hip Hop albums of the year though.

Nah B. You must of forgot white people got mad as fu*k at him for the "White Privilege Part 2" song. The man basically called his white pop mom fans lowkey inner racist and overall white people ignorant for not understanding BLM.

They SHUNNED him after that.

Personally, I think The Heist deserved that Grammy...



It's strange dudes got a new album out and I AIN'T HEARD sh*t ABOUT IT...
....He "did" something to p*ss "somebody" off...



I remember jumpin in the whip and my homie putting The Heist on and my first thought at the time and decline rap was in after HIPHOP NEEDED THAT ALBUM

Subject Matter alone makes that album worth it...


He's not finna out bar NOBODY, ain't finna shine on NOBODY but as far as "creating songs" he had a place in hiphop...

Skin color be damned the album was DOPE. I don't even fu*k wit the gay sh*t BUT as "music" "Same Love" worked and made the album better...was a good song...

"We did it" y'all make it seem like it's his fault he won a Grammy and like black people didn't get on his a*s so hard that he made a whole album apologizing. Let the man make his music, what is all the hate for?

"We" did it Bx? the fu*k you talking about? The man cares about the culture and doesnt want to win a prize unfairly because of his skin color. He should be celebrated. He know he dont deserve to win an award. But because old white people would "feel" his music or understand it more, he decided to say fu*k THAT.

Not a Macklemore fan at all. But the man knows how to make a hit. And this conversation about who belongs in hip hop and doesn't is so fu*king counterproductive. Making sh*t corny
