Beginning in the winter of 2008 in Seattle, Washington, MC Macklemore and producer Ryan Lewis linked up to create their debut EP entitled “VS.” Based off an idea to sample relevant, contemporary bands, the EP exposes Hip-Hop fans to genres they may be less familiar with. “VS.” re-imagines the sounds of Beirut, The Killers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Arcade Fire and many more. The EP will be a completely donation-based release dropping at the end of November. “Otherside” (the first… read more

    I will say, Ryan Lewis is a crazy producer. I'd love to see him work with someone who could do more with his production.

    respect it. But he doesn't. That's why me and so many others loved Pac. Pac said what he meant and meant what he said. If something was on his mind, it was coming out. There was just a brutal honesty and personal feeling I got when I put a Pac record on. Macklemore has a similar sort of appeal, he comes across as extremely candid, and he's not afraid to self reflect on any aspect of his life. He doesn't try to be cryptic or impress with verbal gymnastics, he's very blunt and straight forward. That honesty just doesn't amount to much of anything. He's best on songs like "Wing$", "Kevin", & "Otherside". Those feel the most vivid and candid, and they work. Macklemore's viewpoints can pretty much be summed up by the internet cliche average tumblr frequent.

    I like Macklemore. I mean, he's corny. Cringe worthy corny. That corn comes across as just a sort of weird honesty in my eyes. I feel like he means what he says when he says something (This isn't talking about corny shit like "Brad Pitt's Cousin", just corn and basic lines in his "serious" songs) One cof my main criticisms of Macklemore is, to put it bluntly, he's a pussy. He doesn't ever say anything really. He talks about things, but he doesn't really say anything about them. I took nothing away from "White Privilege II". It's just a bunch of self-loathing. "Light Tunnels" has a great concept, but all he does is stumble over cliches on materialism. He doesn't really ever take a stance on ANYTHING, simply tries to appease one crowd while trying not to seem to confrontational to another (i.e. White Privilege II). Wherever I stand on the issue of the "#Blacklivesmatter" movement, the idea of White Privilege, etc. don't really affect how I view the track. If he took a stand, I could
