Benzino Says He Warned Of Macklemore's Success & Claims "The Grammys Never Respected Hip Hop"

Benzino tweets that rappers should not cry because they did not win at the Grammys.

Benzino sent a series of tweets today (January 27) saying that he warned of the type of success a rapper like Macklemore had at the Grammys yesterday (January 26). 

"So everybody is upset about macklemore dominating the #grammys BUT 10 YEARS AGO WHEN I TRIED TO WARN U, YOU DIDNT LISTEN, NOW DEAL WITH IT!,” one of Benzino’s tweets said. 


Benzino is a former executive at The Source. In the 2000s, he and The Source engaged in a feud with Eminem that, among other things, accused Eminem of being racist and of creating an environment where white rappers would be revered only because they were white. It also included Benzino releasing a string of diss tracks against Eminem.

In a 2003 issue of the publication, a drawing of Benzino appeared inside The Source holding Eminem’s decapitated head. Following that issue, Eminem, Dr. Dre and Aftermath boycotted the publication.

“It wasn’t a personal thing about these guys and what they accomplished,” Benzino said in an interview last year. “I was just looking at the bigger picture and I don’t think they understood that.”

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis won four Grammys yesterday (January 26), including Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song. Macklemore said during an interview with New York radio station Hot 97 that was published today that he knows why he and Lewis were so successful at the award show. 

“In terms of the people that are voting on those ballots, filling out those bubbles, we have an unfair advantage due to race, due to the fact we had huge radio success, due to the fact that our name was circulating more in a pocket in the industry of people filling out that ballot,” Macklemore said. "This is not like a Rap Radar poll, like a 2DopeBoyz poll. This is not a Hot 97 poll. This is the Grammys. This is many different types of people. All different age groups filling out a ballot where they might not necessarily know the genre.”

Benzino’s tweets from today are as follows:

    The reason that EM and Royce's BME album sold more than Royce's album was because Eminem already has a huge following, Royce doesn't...Also Em makes good songs and catchy ones too, not royce. These niggars always have to pull the race card out. This idiot doesn't understand that Em is huge. So of course the collab albm with Royce will sell more than Royce's single album.

    It's the fucking Grammys who gives a shit really. Mack used the gay rights shit to his advantage period. It's not about race. I know common and murs made similar songs but at that time the issue was not accepted in hip hop. Now with jay, kanye, and others defending the issue mack felt comfortable pushing it and now he capitalized on it. Yea you can't hate the grind but you could hate the tatics he used grind. Shit after all the marriage shit during his performance the heist will probably double. Face it the man won the award cheating and he knows it. If race played a part in this it was a smallone. And benzinos Royce comparison is just dumb. Bme sold that much because #1 a lot of people were waiting on a bad meets evil album since the slim shady lp. 2 if Royce did an album with another white rapper those sales would've been lower its fucking eminem. You think Royce and yelawolf would've sold 800,000 copies no. Shitty rappers could sell a boatload too if they got an eminem feature

  • tigerking79

    Benzino is wack. Old motherfucker is more white than he is black. And he grew up in the whitest city in country in Boston. So who is this motherfucker to complain about a white rapper. Dumb motherfucker had a meal ticket for life in blackmailing Dave Mays for The Source money. Then the dumb motherfucker wants to start a beef with eminem to jump start a rap career he never had. Then The Source collapses and now this motherfucker is broke.

  • don

    Btw,jay,kanye and beyonce have won more grammys than eminem because they are better than him. Metacritic will attest to that. Eminem doesn't have a single classic album to his name!

  • don

    Eminem is trash,macklemore is trash,but he did a song called same love and sold an album to a million gay people! Lets be honest,he wouldn't have sold shit without that song. The entertainment industry is run by gay's, thats why rappers nowadays wont criticise gay people in their interviews. The gay agenda is being shoved down our throats. You can see it everywhere,but mostly on sitcoms,films and series!

    The Grammys is nothing more than the white man's popularity contest.

Let's stop trying to cater to these crack**s and continue to do our own thing through our own outlets. We still the BET & MTV awards. Least they respect the culture of hip hop.

    • tigerking79

      BET and MTV have played a bigger role in ruining hip hop than the grammy's. In fact the grammy's have no influence over hip hop anyway. The grammy's have had a long history of making terrible choices for winners, no matter what the musical genre. If you are hip hop, then you don't give a fuck about the grammy's.

  • DJ Shadow

    Everybody know the grammy dont care about hiphop they just put it in to shut people up. Come on and everybody suprised the k dot didnt win. The people that pick the winner dont listen to hiphop they are not fans. The fans dont pick the winners old white people do. SOO stop crying. If k dot didnt win schoolboy your fucked hahahahahahahha

  • Andre.CO

    Macklemore winning isn't a joke, though I felt Kendrick deserves Best Rap Album. I didn't mind him winning the song categories, as I do enjoy Thrift Shop more then Swimming Pools. But Rap Album should have gone to Kednrick. Still, Macklemore winning isn't bad, the guy crafted a pretty damn good album, and something no one else was doing or saying in rap. Lil Wayne winning, Kanye winning, those are jokes IMHO. Kanye is THE MOST OVERRATED emcee of all time in terms of acclaim and grammy's.

    • tigerking79

      I'm not into Macklemore, but he is definitely hip hop. Don't understand all the bitching and moaning about him from hip hop heads. Only, explanation is that he is a white rapper who, unlike Eminem, doesn't go with the "hip hop look." All of these motherfuckers whining about Macklemore, where was their whining when Nelly and Ja Rule were dominating hip hop charts and awards by singing bubble gum pop songs instead of MCing. Macklemore is a whole lot more hip hop than Drake is. Yet, nobody whines about that pretty boy Drake not being hip hop.

  • Andre.CO

    Macklemore won because of the bigger message in his songs, and they resonated with a wider audience. He didn't win because of race. Kendrick is a much better emcee than Macklemore, but Macklemore makes up for his technical ability, or lack there of, with his messages and abilities as a song writer. Jay Z, Kanye, Beyonce, Alicia Keys have ALL won a shit load of Grammy's, even more then Eminem. Now tell Jay or Kanye a better emcee then Eminem, hell no. Kanye has won loads of grammy's and is loved by white critics, and his albums routinely score in the 80's on metacritic, while Eminem's classics have scored in the 70's. So don't give me this grammy's and white critics hate black artists, and favor white one's bullshit.

    • Anonymous

      Anonymous: He makes a good point. Mack's music appeals to suburban white kids/people/soccer moms, but Kedricks' appeals to mostly college kids, suburban white kids, and people in the hood. While both their demographics are different, Mack has a slight edge over Ken, that being a song praising gay rights and that he's white and therefore appeals to white people and homosexuals. Kendrick, on the other hand, well he's a psuedo intellectual and his lyrics aren't really all that deep if you really take the time to think about it. Sure, he has an interchangable & flexible delivery which makes him SOUND like he's something special, but he's really not. Kendrick is average at best, in terms of lyrics and delivery, but is much more diverse than Mack. Overall, Kendrick is the product of a good kid in a mad city, but the people have spoken. Mack took home 4 Grammy's (and married 33 gay couples),all while commiting a Heist the world won't soon forget ^^^^ You're speaking my language. Thumbs up.

      no need to explain bro. no matter ur facts black ppl will always find an angle to complain about or bitch about even if its rly not there ( in this case even im tight Kendrick lost to macklemore).. but in the future don't bother ull never win with broke blacks.

  • redyreg

    benzino is right, I saw this shit coming when he first spoke on it, black people are so damn scare and phony, go ahead and let them take this too, this is why you cant sell shit, fucking sellouts, the hip hop world should be tearing shit up, one of your own get screwed, k. lamar, total bullshit, you dumb motherfucker like working for crumbs, wake the fuck up, white people steal everything we invent and get more attention and make more money, off our shit, wish I could speak up for u bitch's, make me fucking sick, all you coward ass black people on here that don't know or cant see shit , fuck you, all you sorry ass white people on here talking shit about benzino, double fuck you bitch's, the fucking truth hurts.

  • HelloKity

    I understand what Benzino is saying, and why he feels the way he does. But I also think this is sort of a racism issue within himself. He wishes Eminem never would of happened and influenced so many people in hip-hop. In Benzino's ideal world, no white person would ever be a rapper, and no white person period would ever have any influence in the hip-hop world. Benzino is mad that the mainstream doesn't like his style of bland "Boston Pride" "real sh*t" hip-hop." His music is garbage, and he got REAL bitter when EM blew up. Then the Source Magazine fired his phony ass. I would be mad too. Now it's 2014 and hes trying to make noise again hoping someone will feed him his binky. Look, I don't completely trust these award shows, and the media either. I think its dumb. But if you banned white people from hip-hop (like benzino wants), or Black people from country music, the genres would suffer creatively. I don't like Macklemore either, but im tired of these old ass cats like Lord Jamar, and Benzino trying to draw lines and boundaries and saying this person isn't hip-hop, and white people destroyed hip-hop. They are making it a race issue. Every genre of music has it's ups and downs. The machine always has it's agenda, but real music is the only music that actually lasts. My point is, let everyone do their thing, like what you like, hate what you hate, but don't bitc* that the very narrow part of hip-hop that you like doesn't win mainstream media awards. Get over it. New music is being made everyday, and you never know what the future holds.

    • Skool 4 Klownz

      True. Nobody forcing people to listen to Macklemore or kendrick or nobody. Go beyond the radio for music. Do some research and find the music for you. Yes we made it in the hood but different races making hip hop adds more variety to the culture. Nobody give a fuck about the grammys. Open the third eye.

    I had to add to this because i was reading so many comments and i've never been a fan of BenziNOO!!! So this guy says, 10 years ago, he saw this coming? let me get this straight, Eminem is to blame for this future we have now as far as white hip hop artist? ok.. So apparently, artist like Vanilla Ice, Beastie Boys, 3rd bass, or even pioneer producers like Rick Rubin had nothing to do with hip hop in its transition in some way? This dude is trash! Did someone say 10 years prior to Eminem when Vanilla won grammys for his crappy music that this was the future of hip hop? I'm not giving me props to V-Ice, i'm just saying, its ignorance because white hip hop artists have been around since the 80's. And Mackalomore isn't just putting out crap music, even black artists aren't putting their heart in music like Nas, 2pac, Biggie. I Don't think anyone can decline that Eminem is a mastermind of words. Does race play a role? possibly but he is still talented and well respected by the hip hop community. Benzino just looking for a way to express his failures!

    The DX trolls are to brain dead to even get the point of what he's saying. Ray sucked as a rapper and he made his beef with Em way too personal but he did predict this 10 years ago, about Em paving the way for mediocre white rappers to take over. Em was an incredible talent in his day, and the industry used him as a bridge to get the game white washed and make room for artists like Macklemore. And its only the beginning, wait till they get Iggy Azalia out there.......10 years from now, black rappers will be non existant in the mainstream........ And Benzino did predict all this way back when, regardless of how shitty his own records are

    Somtimes the truth is ugly. I would have preferred not to have Benzino say a god damn thing about this. On balance Em has contributed more to Hip Hop than he has with his wack un-artistic ass. Saying all that he does have a point. Royce doesn't sell because Royce is black. The reason Em sells is because he's white. Yet we have people coming on here and calling Benzino and Lord Jamar racist for pointing out the obvious truth. Em is good, but he's ain't that much better than Royce or the rest of D12 and Slaughterhouse for that matter. It's obvious race bias on the part of the fans but the white guilt won't allow that to be acknowledged. Macklemore is obviously well aware of what is going on and I'm sure the artist in him is feeling awkward with how unworthy it is that I white man can sell so much mediocre music and receive so much accolades on the back of an appropriated art form such as Hip Hop on the basis of his skin color. At least Em did it with actual skill. This is some next bullshit. You should be all ashamed of yourselves.

    Benzino is up there with Ross and Lord Jamar in terms of white hatred but Benzino is from the community and been in this rap shit for many moons dealing with the politricks and behind the scenes. The hatred for Benzino comes from what Eminem refers to as his "Stan's" and their hate for anyone who disses their superhero which Benzino did but all Benzino wanted to do was share Eminems racist rap songs with the HipHop community and for that he was blackballed.

    DX please review your articles before posting. Macklemore is the name of the duo that he is a part of. The rapper's name is 'The Heist', wiki it you idiots!

  • Classic Material

    All these guys hating on Mackelmore need to look in the fucking mirror, they claim that these white rappers are racist or shouldn't be allowed in the hip hop community are just mad because they lack the talent to be there. Talent doesn't have anything to do with color and being black shouldn't automatically equal hip hop success. Equality means we are equal, equal to suck and equal to excel. Benzino and Lord Jamal are just reaching for relevancy in a world that doesn't care about them...

      It has EVERYTHING to do with race...Im not even a conspiracy theorist, but if Maclemore was black, he wouldn't have even been nominated...He even said so himself on the radio dummy...

    Intelligent people are tired of hearing songs about guns senseless murders and trap music. Someone winning at the grammy's with a positive message is a nice change.

  • EvenOdd

    Em deserved his Grammy's...well most of them. This clown is just upset because his music was never relevant. The only reason people ever heard of this dude is because of em.
