Macklemore is truly an inspiration. He’s exactly what this generation needed. His music is absolutely empowering/inspirational.
He raps about reality. He teaches kids that its okay not to have designer clothes, you can be cool wearing stuff from the thrift shop. And he’s spreading the word that you can be whatever sexuality you want, we all deserve to be loved.
If you listen to some of his older music you’d know that he used to have personal issues like getting Addicted to cough syrup and almost overdosing. (He talks about it in his song “otherside”) But he got through it. He’s probably saved more lives than he knows with that song. He showed thousands of people that life gets better, it’s never too late to turn your life around.
People really needed to hear music like this. I’m so glad he’s finally gotten his big break. He deserves it more than any other rapper out there. I have nothing but respect for this man. ❤
