Macklemore Vs. Kendrick Lamar: Battle Puts 'Real Hip-Hop' In The Crossfire

Hip-hop has always had an interesting tug-of-war with the Grammys, and Sunday's ceremony will be no exception.
In one corner you have Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with all of their platinum plaques, #1 Billboard singles and independent pop success. In the other you have Kendrick Lamar, who dazzled critics with his coming-of-age major-label debut good kid, m.A.A.d city — a masterful album that pushed more than a million copies while at the same time satisfying hip-hop purists. Both acts received seven nominations and will face off against each other in four categories: Album of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance.
