Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "The Heist" Goes Gold [Update: Album Goes Platinum] Aug 28, 2013 at 01:21pm

The Grammys finally go down this weekend, on Sunday January 27th, so there's plenty of Grammy discussion going down these past few days both rap-related and not.
Macklemore, who is nominated for a number of Grammys including album of the year, took the stage to perform his inescapable hit, "Thrift Shop" at the 2014 Grammy Nominations concert last night.
