This week’s installment of the KEXP 10-part series “Hip-Hop: The New Seattle Sound” profiles Macklemore. KEXP says, “This rapper’s music, philosophy and self-reflection inspires all of us to dig deeper, to question ourselves and also to be proud of the gifts we’re given. Macklemore’s latest release with Ryan Lewis, the 2010 Vs. EP, contains some of the deepest lyrics ever recorded. Macklemore’s work on the release is edgy, existential and classic, all at once. In this KEXP radio story, Macklemore talks about getting his start at Garfield High School in Seattle, calling it a ‘mecca of hip-hop.’ We discuss use of the word “bitch” in hip-hop songs to describe women and why the word is authentic in some cases and wrong in others. And Macklemore lays his opinions out on the line like he always does, with unrelenting honesty.” Check out the show after the link.
