Poppin’ tags, being flat broke, and wearing your granddad’s clothes isn’t something that is typically discussed in rap tracks these days, but when an artist manages to stray away from the norm of materialism and sexual encounters to deliver something that is catchy and lyrically hilarious, you know you got something good goin’ on.
This Seattle-based emcee and his bud Ryan Lewis team up once again for a more lighthearted track titled “Thrift Shop,” which pokes fun at being poor and prolific. While the song attempts to make humorous jabs at mainstream rap, these dudes still aim to please with fun chorus lines, poor man swag, and silky saxophone loops.
“Thrift Shop” is off Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ upcoming album, The Heist, due out October 9. Peep the hilarious video below:
