June’s Artist of the Month: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis


Here at Roseberry Productions we like to show appreciation to music and all that comes with it. This month we have chosen Macklemore & Ryan Lewis as our Artist of the Month. This hip hop duo from Seattle have been causing somewhat of a stir in the music industry of recent and it’s all stemmed from there amazing music. I have to admit that I fancy the pants of Macklemore and have done for quite some time.

Now the first time I heard Thrift Shop I have to admit that I was a bit confused by the song. Obviously me being British I had no idea what a thrift shop was so I didn’t quite get it (by the way for all the people in the UK, a thrift shop in America is a charity shop to us). However with that being said I constantly found myself singing the chorus and rapping along whenever it came on telly.

His second single Can’t Hold Us which featured the amazingly talented Ray Dalton has become one of my favourite songs of all time. I had no idea that this song was Macklemore’s song because I had heard the song before on an advert so when I saw and heard that the song belonged to Macklemore I couldn’t believe it.

The hip hop community is a hard community to get into and once you gain the respect from the community and they welcome you, you know that you’ve great. White rappers aren’t very common in hip hop. Eminem is probably the most famous white rapper who has gained respect from the hip hop community but I honestly feel that Eminem now has competition with Macklemore.

I’ve listened to the entire album The Heist and it definitely is one of the best albums this year. I am absolutely in love with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and I hope that they continue to have major success and luck and that’s why I’m giving them Artist of the Month.
