Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Thrift Shop (ft. Wanz)
This will be the first of a few songs I’ll be posting from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s new outstanding album The Heist. It’s one of the best albums I’ve heard in a really, really long time. I’m still not 100% sure yet if The Heist is my favorite album of the year…but even if it isn’t, it’ll be damn close. To put it in retrospect, this is Macklemore's best release ever, by a huge margin. There are a couple songs on it that aren't too impressive, but other than that it's packed with a plethora of unique and amazing songs such as Thrift Shop that represent the epitome of hip-hop originality. Macklemore doesn’t give a shit what other “cool things” rappers are talking about, because he only raps about his life and what personally concerns him. He doesn’t purposely go against the grain, but inherently does because he’s only being himself and nothing else…aka real hip-hop. The MUSIC VIDEO is also pretty damn phenomenal.
My Song Rating: 9.6 out of 10
