The king of thrift, Macklemore, finally puts some visuals to his fun banger “Thrift Shop.” 

NEW MUSIC: Macklemore “Thrift Shop” 

Before dropping his new track “Thrift Shop,” Macklemore decided to post a funny message about the inspiration behind the song and the video. 

“I am the most prolific thrift shopper in the rap game right now. What Bob Barker is to the Price Is Right, I am to used fringe jackets.  My collection is worth anywhere between $70 and a $100,000,000 depending on who’s appraising it.  I’m gonna be honest, if it’s me…. I’m going with a million.  Count the zero’s.  That’s how many fur jackets I have.  Tell PETA my Mink, Fox, Rabbit, Coyote, and Hungarian Raccoon jacket are ALL dragging on the floor.  And I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way.  I love my animals.  But they’re dead.  And they’ve been dead for hella.  When I wear them, I’m bringing them back to life and introducing them to a whole new generation who wasn’t around when they were out in the woods doing their thing.  Those animals have now migrated from some old lady’s closet, to a thrift shop and are now getting their proper shine, up to 40 years later.  It’s recycling.  And recycling is beautiful, am I right?  That’s what this song is about.”  

NEW MUSIC: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis “Same Love” 

Macklemore first burst on the national music scene when he appeared on XXL’s Freshmen Class. Since then, the Seattle native has been tearing up the ‘net with meaningful tracks like “Same Love” and “The Town.” 

“Thrift Shop” is off his forthcoming LP, The Heist, due out October 9.
