Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Bring Marriage Equality To Hip Hop On Ellen!

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayMusic MinuteEllen DeGeneresMacklemoreMary Lambert

Hip hop hasn't exactly embraced acceptance of the LGBT community over the years, but fortunately that's starting to change.

Frank Ocean inspired many artists to rethink their stance on the issue earlier this year and now a duo going by the name Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are continuing to put equality into the minds of music lovers around the world.

Along with the lovely vocals of Mary Lambert, the hip hop collaborators appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' daytime talk show on Tuesday to perform their same-sex marriage anthem, Same Love (above).

The beautifully articulate lyrics are truly inspiring and the song is beyond incredible. This is one tune that will be on our playlist for a while.

The rising hip hop stars are the same guys behind the hit single, Thrift Shop, which is as fun as music gets. Check out the music videos for both songs … AFTER THE JUMP!!!

    Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are from Seattle and this song is very timely because we are voting on legalizing gay marriage on November 2nd!

    Re: Kathrine – ….since we're a mail-in State, hopefully you've mailed in your *APPROVE REFERENDUM 74* ballot by 11/2 as Katherine suggested, but *technically* ballots are due on Election Day. ;)

    These guys are so inspirational and totally different to anything that's on the market nowadays! I can't criticize even one song of theirs. I've been to see them twice and not only are they talented they are really lovely blokes :-)

    Question: What does it mean to have three white people–two of whom are straight–be the beacon of gay rights in hip-hop?
