Default Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis



A little shocked a forum this savvy to hiphop/rap didn't beat me to this punch but I love the hell out of this jam.

They had a broken keyboard, I bought a broken keyboard.

I remember hearing one of their songs at a bar a few week ago and really liking it, but their album from last year has just been one of those ones that continually slips my mind. One day I will finally sit down and listen to it though.

He's pretty wack. That's why you haven't heard us talk about him.

He has a boring flow, beats I don't like, corny as hell, preachy st times whilst being a douchebag and there's much better artists I'd rather spend time listening to. Poor man's Brother Ali.

Let me know when you do. I listened to a handful of tracks (Spotify on random) and I really liked it. Its not perfect by any stretch but I thought he was solid, didn't veer into boring or laconic rhymes, had a pretty good track behind him (a little Paul's Boutique influence) and seemed to know when to not take himself too seriously.

I was impressed.

Easily, one of the best performers in his genre I've ever seen. I think he has some great face-value lyrics - I would agree that most of his stuff isn't too deep. But I think it's well written, fun when it needs to be, and I'd say Ryan Lewis's beats are one of the duo's strengths.

Here's a handful of other tunes to check out:
Macklemore x Ryan Lewis "WINGS" Official Music Video - YouTube
MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS - SAME LOVE feat. MARY LAMBERT (OFFICIAL VIDEO) - YouTube
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Neon Cathedral ft Allen Stone - YouTube
MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS - "Irish Celebration" (Official Music Video) - YouTube
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis - My Oh My (Official Video) - YouTube
