Macklemore

Macklemore

Thursday 27.6.2019

There’s probably no other rapper who captured the sound of the early 2010s better than Macklemore. “The Heist”, the 2012 breakthrough album made with producer Ryan Lewis, catapulted the Seattle-based rapper to instant rap stardom. Especially represented on the Grammy-winning hit single “Thrift Shop”, Macklemore’s light-hearted tongue-in-cheek approach combined with his lyrical prowess captured the zeitgeist perfectly. However, there’s more to him. Concerned with social issues, Macklemore has been vocal about inequality and substance abuse and has campaigned to make the world a bit more civil place to inhabit. In March 2019 Macklemore dropped his latest banger “We Don’t Belong In This Club” with the boy band Why Don’t We. Striking the perfect balance between cheeky, humorous and right-out fierce, Macklemore truly is a force of nature on the stage.
