iTunes Review

A fast-rising Seattle emcee, Macklemore has been putting out independent projects since 2000, when he debuted with the EP Open Your Eyes. Since then, he's been steadily releasing new material, building up an impressive rep for intelligent and heartfelt lyricism set to unique yet undeniably catchy production. He's been working with producer Ryan Lewis since 2008, and together they bring out the best of each other, as evidenced on joints like VS, The Unplanned Mixtape, and VS Redux. On The Heist, they join forces for 15 tracks loaded with ear-tickling, synth-driven beats and personal, hyper-annunciated flows. After his humble beginnings as a local indie favorite, this is the album that should launch him toward international mainstream stardom. It features the thought-provoking gay-rights single "Same Love" plus an irresistibly funky ode to secondhand shopping, "Thrift Store."

Customer Reviews

I Barely Listen To Rap

...but I love this album. I was shocked by the song "Same Love" because in the rap game you never hear about pro-marriage equality. He had a lot of courage to write that song. And after listening to some more of his songs, he speaks the truth. I find him appealing because his songs aren't 100% consumed with focusing on drugs, sex, violence or partying, unlike most of today's music.

Refreshing.

Wow. What a novel idea: no objectifying of women, no condoning drug use, and no use of the n- word. =Beautiful music. Well done.

Amazing

I'm literally so excited for this album, I heard a leak of the song Starting Over and I had chills the whole time
