Macklemore's last single, "Drug Dealer," was a deeply personal track that found him exposing the evils of Big Pharma, of whom he's been a victim. After performing "Drug Dealer" on Jimmy Fallon last night, he has now unveiled another single, "Wednesday Morning," on which he attempts to piece together a message of hope in the wake of Donald Trump's surprise victory over Hillary Clinton.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Feat. Ariana DeBoo
Macklemore has participated in a discussion with Barack Obama on the dangers of opioid addiction in a special that is set to air on MTV tonight, and he and Ryan Lewis have shared a new track in advance that deals with the same subject matter. Those familiar with Macklemore's back catalogue know about his battle with drug abuse well, and "Drug Dealer" revisits the dark past we heard about on 2010's "Otherside," as the rapper lists artists we've lost to alleged overdoses, including ASAP Yams, DJ AM, Prince, and more.
FDT Part 2
YG Feat. G-Eazy & Macklemore
The other week we got a sneak preview of this remix (or as its being labeled, part 2) of "FDT" when footage of YG and G-Eazy performing it live surfaced. However it wasn't clear then that Macklemore also had a verse on the hard-hitting political record.
Need To Know
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Feat. Chance The Rapper
Much is at stake for Macklemore on his sophomore album This Unruly Mess I've Made, which drops tomorrow.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Feat. KRS-One & DJ Premier
A few days ago, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis revealed the tracklist for their sophomore album, This Unruly Mess I've Made, which is due out next week, on February 26th. The album is rather surprisingly feature-heavy, with appearances on every single record save one-- features come from a wide range of faces too, including OGs like Melle Mel, DJ Premiere, Kool Moe Dee, and young cats like Chance The Rapper, YG and Anderson .Paak. It's definitely a big melting pot of hip-hop.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Looking to set the mood with that special someone upon this Valentine's Day? Well, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have come through with a romantic new single just in time for the evening: "Spoons." The track features Ryan Bedard, a coffee house singer/songwriter who belts out, "I'm spoonin' you, you're spooning me," on the warm, uppity chorus. Macklemore is feeling extra goofy on his raps, as he details his distress upon discovering that his boo-boo thang has been sneaking episodes of Game of Thrones without him. He also compares her belly to that of Gucci Mane.
White Privilege II
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Feat. Jamila Woods
After a two year hiatus, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will finally release their long awaited new album next month called This Unruly Mess I’ve Made. Looking to amp up the promotion, the duo decide to come through today and share a new Jamila Woods-featured record called “White Privledge II,” which serves as a follow up to Mack's song of the same name from 2005.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Feat. Leon Bridges
Macklemore's legion of haters quadrupled when The Heist beat out Kendrick Lamar's good kid m.A.A.d. city for Best Rap Album at the Grammys a couple years back. No one seemed to care that The Heist was actually a solid album, and when Macklemore & Ryan Lewis released a highly dubious single called "Downtown" in August, the haters' suspicions were confirmed.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
After dropping the sanguine "Growing Up," Macklemore & Ryan Lewis flip the script with a new track "Downtown" that goes in all in with an '80s hip hop aesthetic -- old school flow, stripped down funky percussion, ample cowbell, and even features from Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee, & Grandmaster Caz, all of whom are founding fathers of the genre.
Growing Up (Sloane's Song)
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Feat. Ed Sheeran
It looks like we're seeing Macklemore and Ryan Lewis come out of hiding. After reaching astronomical levels of success with their debut album The Heist, and specifically singles like "Thrift Shop," the duo took a break from music. During a recent interview with Complex, they revealed their new album is almost complete, so it was only a matter of time before they dropped a new record. And here it is.
Fences Feat. Macklemore
Fences may not be a familiar name to our regular readers. A four-piece band based out of Seattle, the group has (to date) remained pretty exclusively in their genre (alt-pop), so, naturally, they don't usually find themselves on hip-hop websites--at least not until today.
Clinton Sparks Feat. 2 Chainz, Macklemore & D.A.
Stream Gold Rush, the newest drop from Clinton Sparks which features 2 Chainz, Macklemore & D.A.. The cut was released on Tuesday, May 21st, 2013. Clinton Sparks continues to impress with each new leak, and Gold Rush is no exception. It's strengthens Clinton Sparks's already impressive body of work, which has seen positive change over the years. We're most definitely anticipating Clinton Sparks's next offering.
The World Famous Tony Williams Feat. Wale, Emilio Rojas & Macklemore
Give Blazin High (Prod. by Oddz.N.Endz) a spin - it's a new offering from The World Famous Tony Williams, featuring Wale, Emilio Rojas & Macklemore. It was dropped on Friday, January 6th, 2012. The World Famous Tony Williams's rap artistry continues to improve with every release, something which is most definitely evidenced on Blazin High (Prod. by Oddz.N.Endz). His ever-expanding catalogue is definitely better for it, and we're looking forward to the next piece of the puzzle - aren't you?
