Trapped in the Tumblr Closet: Macklemore
The inspiring rapper discusses thrift shopping, his purpose, and more.
Macklemore is using the spoken word to create change. With his immaculate blonde quiff, wistful blue eyes, and rad sartorial style, this Seattle-born rapper is sincere in his songs and urgent in their meanings. And with help from producer Ryan Lewis, he’s putting the spotlight on addiction, civil rights, loyalty, love, and pride in a humble, genuine, relatable way. This stuff is socially conscious rap at its best.
The duo’s first studio album, The Heist, is now on the shelves, and the music world is stirring. Macklemore stopped by the Closet and chatted with us about thrift shopping, his purpose on earth, and cornrow possibilities for TommyPom.
