Ben Haggerty aka Mackelmore is extremely talented. When you first heard Thrift Shop, you immediately thought “novelty,” didn’t ya? I know I did. The same exact feeling I had when I first heard My Name Is by Eminem and look at the great lengths he’s gone to. I mean, I loved both instantaneously like the rest of the world, but I didn’t take them seriously as legit rappers until the follow up singles. Well gurl, Macklemore can rhyme. Down. He is on the cover of the current Rolling Stone and he talks about having “white privilege.” As you can imagine, his comments are causing all sorts of discussions, backlashes, etc. Read it here.
