  • Read the comment from his instagram picture of him and Wilson. He said he threw up 3 minutes later due to suffering from food poisoning. Good thing he didn't post that picture.

  • Macklemore is a really good guy too. He's all about Seattle and he gives a ton back to the community. He ended up completely remodeling his girlfriend's mom's busted ass home in Florida and paid off the mortgage as soon as he blew up.

    Great music too, don't follow the pop template and does what he wants with his own label. Seems like he would be really fun to hang out with.

    Love seeing this. I think it's funny how everyone is taking to Russell also. Everyone loves him and wants to be close to him. Mack, Will Ferrell, Rainn Wilson, John Legend, Drake, etc, etc.

  • If you believe his song, he almost died of an OD. He went from that to the biggest rock star in the world--dude's got props. Of course he's a 12th man.

  • I like him and his music is actually decent, the heist entire album. He sings about real life and hoping for change, plus he's a good person whats not to like. Go Hawks!

  • I first met Macklemore back when I first moved to Olympia in 05. Back then he was a local rapper who did a bunch of small shows around town, and was just one of many awesome people that I became friends with upon moving here.

    He moved to Seattle in 06, and we kept in touch, he even opened up for me at my CD release party in Seattle. We still stay in touch.

    Earlier this season I went to the SF game in Seattle with Dunceface and crew. In the 3rd quarter of the game security came up to my row and motioned me over to them. I went and they told me I had to go because I punched someone in the head. (I didn't everyone sitting around me was just as shocked as I was about it,) They escorted me out of the stadium, and I complied, although SUPER PISSED I didn't cause a ruckas and left. (Although Duncefaces Girlfriend was all up in the cops face..)

    a day before the Jags game I get a letter from the Seahawks saying I was banned from Century Link for LIFE. I posted the whole drama to my facebook wall and got a bunch of people to call the Head ticketing agent to atest to my character and try to convince him that I wouldn't do that.

    I get a call from the head ticketing agent after they experienced well over 100 calls in my defense. The head of ticketing sales explained " No one saw any confrontation, any communication, or anyone hitting anyone, but the guy needed medical attention, and if you didnt hit him who did. You need to find out who did, and until you do, you are are banned from games. End of conversation.

    One of me and dunces mutual friends brought this whole thing to Macklemores attention. Mack had me write him an email about everything that happened, that he said he would pass along to his contact within the organization. Within 2 days Mack sent me a screen shot that came from Pete Carrol's assistant saying that I was cleared and am allowed back at games!!!

    He displayed to me absolute kindness and I will forever love him so long as we both shall live.

    It makes seeing him win at everything that much more sweeter.

    I think he threw up because he was so nervous about being in the company of one Russell Wilson :D (I know I would)

    Cool story above. Awesome dude. Yes he used to be an addict and is recovering. I believe he has several years sober now after a replapse a few years back.

    I live in Oly and remember him from the scene way back in the day. He used to go by "Professor Macklemore". A true lyricist for sure. No more of this pop RB crap rapping about money and sex. He could write a lyric about anything and put it to a beat.

    If you're putting quotes around something, you're questioning it's definition as such. It's very clearly music and if you don't like it, you don't have to say anything.

  • Love the guy, love the ambassador, his old music is cool, but to brutally honest, he is vastly overrated as a lyricist. I was listening to Mack, I dunno, 5-6 years ago, been to several shows, but just never fell in love with his music. A cool line here and there, but I think the production and style is better than the content.

    Earlier this season I went to the SF game in Seattle with Dunceface and crew. In the 3rd quarter of the game security came up to my row and motioned me over to them. I went and they told me I had to go because I punched someone in the head. (I didn't everyone sitting around me was just as shocked as I was about it,) They escorted me out of the stadium, and I complied, although SUPER PISSED I didn't cause a ruckas and left. (Although Duncefaces Girlfriend was all up in the cops face..)

    a day before the Jags game I get a letter from the Seahawks saying I was banned from Century Link for LIFE. I posted the whole drama to my facebook wall and got a bunch of people to call the Head ticketing agent to atest to my character and try to convince him that I wouldn't do that.

    I get a call from the head ticketing agent after they experienced well over 100 calls in my defense. The head of ticketing sales explained " No one saw any confrontation, any communication, or anyone hitting anyone, but the guy needed medical attention, and if you didnt hit him who did. You need to find out who did, and until you do, you are are banned from games. End of conversation.

    One of me and dunces mutual friends brought this whole thing to Macklemores attention. Mack had me write him an email about everything that happened, that he said he would pass along to his contact within the organization. Within 2 days Mack sent me a screen shot that came from Pete Carrol's assistant saying that I was cleared and am allowed back at games!!!

    He displayed to me absolute kindness and I will forever love him so long as we both shall live.

    It makes seeing him win at everything that much more sweeter.


    I still get so pissed when I think about that shit! but the reaction to the situation was something to behold in and of itself and Mack came thru big time!
    I also remember him from the Oly days back when he used to do that GW Bush song in the mask...

    and why does L80 always have to remind everyone he doesn't think hip hop is music whenever it is brought up?? we get it buddy youre a crusty buttrocker, we still like you everything is gonna be ok

    Well, you're "brutally honest" opinion is, as we say, your own reality. Mack gets plenty of props from world-renown 'lyricists,' so excuse me if I don't regard you as a expert on the subject.

    Amen. The guys has won a shit ton of awards the past two years or so. Not to mention he's a huge Hawk and Seattle fan, however, it doesn't surprise me that haters who don't know him or appreciate his music will hate.

    I don't care for country music but I wouldn't hate on that music in any public forum. To each their own but some like to pass judgement and live in their bubble of what's right.

    I feel like L80 and half the people here belong in the Jimmy Buffett camp and they're far from cultured in normal day perspectives but I would never say that...

    Condescending much? I was downloading his music like 7 years ago, going to shows, and trumpeted him as Seattle's best. Was very happy for him when he made it big.

    I would put my love for hip-hop and knowledge of its history against anyone here, particularly when it comes to the great lyricists. He may be one of the best going now, but that isn't saying much. When you put his words up there against some of the greats, he unfortunately just isn't on that level. I come from a time where you had to pause and rewind tracks as you went through them because they were so mind-blowing, you couldn't believe somebody was so genius to put together what you just heard. In that regard, Mack has always been relatively simple and predictable.

  • Macklemore's music doesn't speak to me like the people here obviously. But you gotta respect what he's brought to Seattle in terms of how the world of hip hop views us. Just wish he'd do a bit more with local artists so they can get the recognition they deserve, j.pinder is the dopest hip hop artist in Seattle IMO, though.

    Also, Tical21 is named after a Method Man album, he's good peoples in my book lol

  • Great story, Smoke.

    I love hearing all the positive stories and comments about and from Macklemore.

    I tried to do him justice with my little 'Thrift Shop" parody, and I realized how amazingly inept I am at rapping and how amazing he is at it. My fear has always been it would cross his way and he would hate it. lol

    I gotta admit, I literally teared up the first time I heard "Same Love." It moved me more than any song I have heard in a long time. That song was literally ripped from my own mind.

    Not going all political here. I just heard a song that shared my exact thoughts and views.

    Hearing my daughter sing it word for word warms my heart.

    Not to sound like an old fuddy duddy, but Macklemore is one of the modern rappers I admire as a person. His music isn't too bad, either.

  • Well thought out lyrics that don't take Googe Eubonics and other assorted modern-day slang translators to decipher is rare in my book. All of the cute li'l 'my lyrics are so clever, figure them out lines' don't earn any sort of 'lyricist' points with me. Get you message out and articulate the important points. If any of you haven't visited Mack's website and saw how the guy can flat-out write (non-lyrics), you owe it to yourself.
