Big fan of the song. When did this come out it seems like a long time ago.
Pic Sigs are for losers.
I think the video came out over the summer, but it recently hit the radio/charts.
I just added this to my spotify.

All my friends love him. I'm not a huge rap fan but I like that song.
really like him. he's very honest and kind of rejects the hip hop community glorification of money and drugs. He had a lot of problems with alcohol and substance abuse in his past. I'd recommend trying Otherside (the version that doesn't sample Red Hot Chili Peppers), Starting Over, Wings, Same Love, and Can't Hold Us.
His and Ryan Lewis's albums are legit. Def recommend downloading them.
Been a huge fan for a long time. "My Oh My" is a great song if you were a childhood baseball fan
"Same Love" is an outstanding song.
He's legit. Love the fact that he basically built up his following on his own without any major label help. First heard of him back in 2011 when he did some live stuff for KEXP in Seattle (best radio station in the country... seriously, subscribe to their YouTube channel for some awesome stuff).
Check out the 15 minute making of documentary for the Thrift Shop video... some good stuff there too.
Jabari Presents: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Documentary)
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis recently released their debut album "The Heist" which reached number 2 on the Billboard charts with 78,000 units sold in it's first week. Their success is incredible as the duo is still an independent act with no major record label involved.
In this short film I traveled to Seattle, Washington to spend the week with Macklemore and Ryan as they shot their famous "Thrift Shop" music video, and prepared for the release of "The Heist". The two brought me into their indie lives and showed me what it takes day after day to reach the level of success they have.
Jabari Presents was made to inspire youth culture to chase their dreams by showcasing people who are living theirs. This is a story of hard work, dedication, and believing in yourself. This is Jabari Presents: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
Please share on your Facebook, Twitter, blog, and look out for the next Jabari Presents doc next month.

Macklemore Thrift Shop Behind The Scenes

...if you're a big fan of deh gheys
Song is getting to be annoying. Will check out his other stuff.
Detroit Hustles Harder
Thrift Shop is awesome; playful and positive; it resonates with everyone because who hasn't been to a thrift shop and his digs at materialism are hella cool.
But while I love that Macklmore is a positive rap guy, the "album" (sorry I'm old) comes across as "preachy". I give the guy credit for overcoming his demons and resurrecting his career but his emphasis on his social conscience seems to take precedence over his ability to make fun songs. Same Love has its place; just not on my iPod.
While we're on the subject of rap, he's some stuff my cousin did.
This is pretty spot on. I guess I'm giving the guy a bit of a pass because he basically lost the past 8 years of his "career" to addiction. He definitely spends at least 5 or 6 tracks on the album dealing with that in some way or another and you're right, I doubt any of those tracks will ever be in my iTunes rotation.
Saw the video/heard the song for the first time this weekend. For the first 30 sec I was like "what is this crap' and then the rest of the song I was like "damn, I need to download this."
I never heard of him until I was watching last week's SNL. I usually give an artist about 10 seconds and say, "this is crap" and skip it, but I really got into this. I'm not quite sure if I should be embarrassed for liking it, or if he should be embarrassed that I do, or both, or neither. F-ck it, I like it, but then I also f-cking love "Lucas With the Lid Off". White dudes raised on Digital Underground represent!
Hot Cheetos & Takis is better
Wings is a fantastic song.
