Everyone felt sorry for Kendrick Lamar after the dazzling young rapper was shut out at the Grammy Awards -- even Macklemore, the guy who beat him head-to-head in several categories.Macklemore sent Lamar an apologetic text after winning in the best rap album category, one of two discussion-worthy moments the Seattle rapper engineered Sunday night. That was one of four awards for best new artist Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and the one that sparked the most grumbling.It was a unique moment in Grammy history -- almost as unique as Macklemore's other moment: the mass on-air wedding that included same-sex couples performed during the duo's rendition of gay-rights anthem "Same Love".Drake, Jay Z and Kanye West also were nominated in the category, but the hip-hop community seemed to throw its hopes behind Lamar, a 26-year-old Compton native and Dr. Dre protege who has deep respect from his peers because of his raw talent, verbal abilities and cinematic vision.
