but if that’s what i believe in, and the reason that i rap, uncle sam is my pimp when he puts me on the track
The best thing about having contributors to this little blog I started is being turned onto stuff from them. It was an early post from Joel at tipped to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and eventually to one of the best remixes of 2010Â (and it’s heavy video). Since then I have kept an eye on Macklemore, tracking his growing success and continued tackling of real life stories in his rhymes. I like his honesty and his willingness to admit his faults and talk about heavy shit he has been through.
New jam “Make The Money”‘s message of integrity above all could easily seem a little heavy-handed but something about Macklemore’s attitude makes me fine with it. Even recent super-cheesy anti-consumerism anthem “Wings” is the good kind of cheesy. But what I like even more than Macklemore’s honesty, is that he knows how to have fun too. Unlike a lot of preachy rappers, he doesn’t stick to one heavy handed note. Thanks to Dave at Fairly Coherent, I saw this perfect example of Macklmore leting his “hair” down in his latest video for “And We Danced” (below). Capital F-U-N. I bet this guy’s live shows go off the chain. Good thing he is on tour now!
