Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigde Staten

In 2009 vormen rapper Ben Haggerty en Ryan Lewis een duo. Het tweetal brengt al vrij snel de mini-albums VS. EP en VS. Redux uit. In het najaar van 2012 verschijnt hun debuutalbum The Heist dat op de uitreikingen in 2014 wordt onderscheiden met een Grammy voor beste rap-album. De heren worden gezien als beste nieuwe artiest en passeren tijdens de uitreiking artiesten als Ed Sheeran en Kendrick Lamar. Thrift Shop wordt onderscheiden als beste rap performance en beste rap song.


Van het album The Heist zijn de singles Thrift Shop, Can’t Hold Us, Same Love en White Walls ook in Nederland aangeslagen. Thrift Shop stond in 2013 zelfs één week op nummer 1.


Eind mei 2015 wordt Macklemore vader van een dochter. Voor haar schrijft hij het nummer Growing Up (Sloane’s Song) waarop ook de stem van Ed Sheeran te horen is.


Songtekst

Hey Macklemore, can we go thrift shopping?

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I, I, I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome

Nah, Walk into the club like: What up, I got a big cock
I'm so pumped about some shit from the thrift shop
Ice on the fringe, it's so damn frosty
That people like: damn, that's a cold ass honkey
Rollin' in, hella deep, headin' to the mezzanine
Dressed in all pink, except my gator shoes, those are green
Draped in a leopard mink, girls standin' next to me
Probably should have washed this, smells like R. Kelly's sheets

Piss

But shit, it was ninety-nine cents (Bag it)
Coppin' it, washin' it, 'bout to go and get some compliments
Passin' up on those moccasins someone else has been walkin' in
Bummy and grungy, fuck it man, I am stuntin' and flossin'
And savin' my money and I'm hella happy that's a bargain, bitch
I'ma take your grandpa's style, I'ma take your grandpa's style
No for real, ask your grandpa, can I have his hand-me-downs (Thank you)
Velour jumpsuit and some house slippers
Dookie brown leather jacket that I found, dig it
They had a broken keyboard, I bought a broken keyboard
I bought a skeet blanket, then I bought a kneeboard
Hello, hello, my ace man, my Mellow
John Wayne ain't got nothing on my fringe game, hell no
I could take some Pro Wings, make them cool, sell those
The sneaker heads would be like: ah, he got the Velcros

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I, I, I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I, I, I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome

What you know about rockin' a wolf on your noggin
What you knowin' about wearin' a fur fox skin
I'm digging, I'm digging, I'm searching right through that luggage
One man's trash, that's another man's come-up
Thank your granddad for donating that plaid button-up shirt
Cause right now I'm up in here stunting
I'm at the Goodwill, you can find me in the (Uptons)
I'm that, I'm that sucker searchin' in this section (Uptons)
Your grammy, your aunty, your momma, your mammy
I'll take those flannel zebra jammies, second-hand, I rock that motherfucker
The built-in onesie with the socks on that motherfucker
I hit the party and they stop in that motherfucker
They be like: oh, that Gucci, that's hella tight
I'm like: yo, that's fifty dollars for a T-shirt
Limited edition, let's do some simple addition
Fifty dollars for a T-shirt, that's just some ignorant bitch (Shit)
I call that getting swindled and pimped (Shit)
I call that getting tricked by business
That shirt's hella dough
And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don't
Peep game, come take a look through my telescope
Trying to get girls from a brand, man you hella won't
Man you hella won't

Goodwill
Poppin' tags
Yeah

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I, I, I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome

I wear your granddad's clothes
I look incredible
I'm in this big ass coat
From that thrift shop down the road

I wear your granddad's clothes (Damn right)
I look incredible (Now come on, man)
I'm in this big ass coat (Big ass coat)
From that thrift shop down the road

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I, I, I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome

Is that your grandma's coat?
