Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' upcoming album This Unruly Mess I've Made is only a week and a half away, and we're getting more and more anxious to hear the new tracks.
Especially with these kinds of guests!
Macklemore took to Instagram Tuesday to reveal the track list as well as well as artists featured on their songs by sharing:
Watch Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' Jaw-Dropping Performance Of White Privilege II With Jamila Woods On The Late Show
This is SO powerful.
That's because while the Seattle-based musician opened things up with an extremely poignant verse, he actually left the stage to give the spotlight to some very deserving guest performers.
And we're glad he did because Jamila completely shut everything down with a haunting refrain.
Seriously, ch-ch-check out the performance right now (below)!!!
Macklemore Says He Didn't Mean To Blast Iggy Azalea Or Miley Cyrus On White Privilege II — Are YOU Buying His Explanation?
Despite Azalea's feelings of frustration, the Thrift Shop rapper says he didn't mean to diss either artist!
He opened up to Rolling Stone regarding the track, explaining:
Can't we all just get along?!
Surprising no one, the Fancy rapper shot back by calling out the Thrift Shop artist for his fake ways.
In a weird twist, the feud launched into ANOTHER feud involving rapper Talib Kweli.
It all started with Kweli posted a response on Twitter that explained how Miz Azalea has disrespected rap culture.
Iggy Azalea Responds To Macklemore's White Privilege II Diss — And She's NOT Happy About The Backstabbing!
It looks like this friendship is over!
The 8-minute song with Ryan Lewis contains a verse that calls out white artists with a history of ripping off black culture — and the Fancy hitmaker was one of them!
Azalea was called "fake and so plastic" in a series of lines that also dissed Miley Cyrus.
Macklemore raps on the track:
Macklemore Calls Out Miley Cyrus & Iggy Azalea For Cultural Appropriation In White Privilege II! Listen To The Powerful Song To Hear The Shade!
Macklemore isn't afraid to address the serious issues — and throw some shade!
The rapper — along with partner Ryan Lewis — has released a new track called White Privilege II, which discusses racism, cultural appropriation, and the Black Lives Matter movement, raising the question:
"Take all we want from black culture, but will we show up for black lives?"
In the eight-minute track, which serves as a sequel to White Privilege from his 2005 album The Language of My World, Mack also names white artists who have been called out for ripping off black culture — specifically Miley Cyrus and Iggy Azalea!
