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

Ay, ay, ay
Yeah, let's go
Alright, alright, okay, uh, alright, okay, alright, oKay

Return of the Mack
Get up what it is, what it does, what it is, what it isn’t
Looking for a better way to get up out of bed instead of
Getting on the internet and checking out how hit me, get up
Thrift shop pimp strut walking
Little bit of humble, little bit of cautious
Somewhere between like Rocky and Cosby
Sweater gang nope nope y’all can’t copy, yup
Bad, Moonwalking
This here is our party
My posse's been on Broadway
And we did it our way
Grown music
I shed my skin and put my bones into everything I record to it
And yet I’m on
Let that stage light go and shine on down
Got that Bob Barker suit game and Plinko in my style
Money, stay on my craft and stick around for those pounds
But I do that to pass the torch and put on for my town
Trust me
On my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T shit hustler
Chasing dreams since I was fourteen
With the four track bussing
Halfway cross that city with the backpack, fat cat, crushing

Labels out here
Nah, they can’t tell me nothing
We give that to the people
Spread it across the country
Labels out here
Nah, they can’t tell me nothing
We give it to the people
Spread it across the country

Here we go back
This is the moment
Tonight is the night
We’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Here we go back
This is the moment
Tonight is the night
We’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Nah, can I kick it, thank you
Yeah, I'm so damn grateful
I grew up, really wanted gold fronts
But that’s what you get when WuiTang raised you
Y’all can’t stop me
Go hard like I got an 808 in my heart beat
And I’m eating at the beat
Like you gave a little speed
To a great white shark on Shark Week, raw
Tell me: go up, gone
Deuces goodbye, I got a world to see, and my girl, she wanna see Rome
Caesar make you a believer, nah
I never ever did it for a throne
That validation comes from giving it back to the people, nah
Sing a song and it goes like
Raise those hands, this is our party
We came here to live life like nobody was watching
I got my city right behind me
If I fall, they got me
Learn from that failure, gain humility
And then we keep marching ourselves

Here we go back
This is the moment
Tonight is the night
We’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Here we go back
This is the moment
Tonight is the night
We’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Ah ah oh oh, ah ah oh oh
Ah ah oh oh, let go

Na na nana na nana na (Aha)
He-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-ey
And all my people say

Na na nana na nana na (That's right)
He-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-ey
And all my people say

Na na nana na nana na
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh
And all my people say

Na na nana na nana na
Mackle-e-e-e-emore

Here we go back
This is the moment
Tonight is the night
We’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Here we go back
This is the moment
Tonight is the night
We’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
