At the rate they’re going, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis could be taking over the world soon!!
And we probably wouldn’t object, ha!
This dynamic duo went from unknown to ubiquitous seemingly overnight!! Just last week, the two became the first duo EVER to have their first two singles hit the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Days later, they won The Billboard Music Award’s Top Rap Song, beating out other HUGE artists like Flo Rida, Kanye West, and PSY.
The two were recently interviewed for Billboard Magazine's cover story, during which Macklemore gave us a glimpse of what makes him really unique:
"I would go to thrift shops and buy really crazy outfits, and put them on and drink malt liquor and call myself 'Professor Macklemore'. I wore a lot of plaid, bell bottoms, older golfer, grandfather-type outfits. I didn't want to look like anyone else."
This is exactly the kind of individuality that we adore in an artist! We CAN'T WAIT to see what’s next!!
Until then, we’ll continue to hit up the local thrift shops whilst blasting Thrift Shop on all our musical devices, LOLz!
