iTunes Editors’ Notes

The debut full-length from Seattle’s Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Heist, is a remarkable introduction to the MC and DJ team. It catapulted the duo to international stardom and helped them earn several GRAMMY®s, including Best New Artist and Best Rap Album. From the jump (“Ten Thousand Hours”), the quick-witted Macklemore tips his cap to Malcolm Gladwell as he professes his love of art and paints a picture of his musical journey. Macklemore proceeds to flex lyrical skills (“Can’t Hold Us"), flaunt a passion for budget fashion on the GRAMMY®-winning smash “Thrift Shop,” reveal uncompromised goals (“Make the Money,” “Jimmy Iovine"), and intelligently deliver endearing stories that further distinguish Macklemore & Ryan Lewis from the rap pack (“Same Love,“ ”Wing$”).

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
