Unfortunately I don’t know much about Macklemore besides he was on the XXL Freshman Cover and he has cinematic videos. Check out the Wings video. Shit is fire for real.
Have you ever in your life been to a hip-hop show (that wasn’t hood rap) that was majority black? Have you ever noticed that an overwhelmingly large portion of rappers are black, but an overwhelmingly large portion of fans are white? Have you ever noticed how people on r/hhh make fun of guys for having “white rapper syndrome” in which their “whiteness” is inherently seen as “whack?” I think that in the age of Obama we’ve become so desensitized to race that we completely don’t notice shifts in cultural differences anymore. These questions perplexed the fuck outta me, so here’s my 2 cents on how this shit goes down:
A new year which means a new XXL Freshmen List for us to complain about. XXL choose Machine Gun Kelly, French Montana, Hopsin, Danny Brown, Macklemore, Kid Ink, Don Trip, Future, Iggy Azalea and Roscoe Dash. Not sure about Roscoe Dash or Hospin and I don’t even know who the hell Macklemore is. My older brother loves Hospin so much, so I have been listening to him lately. But I’m an Odd Future supporter more than Hospin. It’s great to see Don Trip and Detroit’s own Danny Brown make the list. Too bad my vote for Starlito didn’t make it. But Lito is good with his deal with G-Unit. Was Iggy Azalea a good choice?
I have never heard of Tony Williams before. But we do know Emilio Rojas and Wale. Now I am not a fan of Wale at all. But good music is good music, you cannot deny that. Plus I live weed and we could use another weed song today, right? Smoke one or two or six. This is a song about weed or am I just that high?
