    As you are probably aware by now, much to the dismay of the rap community, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis took home Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song at the Grammys awards last night.

    YelaWolf is not happy with Macklemore. This weekend, both rappers performed at the Osheaga Music Festival in Montreal, Canada. All was well until Yela was approached by a fan for a photo. The rapper obliged the fan, but took interest in the festival-goer's shirt. Catfish Billy, who has been pushing his deer logo for some time now, assumed that the shirt was one of his own, but it turned out to be a Macklemore tee, which also happened to use a deer as its logo.

    This week we saw Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience break another record, after first topping Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV in first week sales, it became the first record in 2013 to crack one million sales, going platinum just two weeks after it dropped. On the other end of the spectrum, we saw Weezy F's album, I Am Not A Human Being II, sell a strong 217k, but it did not really live up to his past LP sales.

    Fans at the mtvU Woodie awards were impressed by a stage move Macklemore broke out the show, which found him performing an act similar to crowd surfing, but instead walking across the audience as they held him by his feet. It seems that Wu-Tang rapper Method Man was not impressed by the feat, mainly because he's been doing it himself for some time.
