One of my goals for this blog is to help people discover artists they've never heard of, not just post new music when it comes out. Obviously, you've heard of Macklemore, his album just went platinum and "Thrift Shop" is 7x Platinum. It's awesome that he got so successful, but most people only know him for "Thrift Shop" and he's still never compared or mentioned when discussing the best MC's right now. Though it may not seem like it from "Thrift Shop", Macklemore writes some of the best lyrics in the game. His songs tell stories and, as you may have heard in "Same Love", he's not afraid to tackle controversial issues. Macklemore definitely isn't for everyone since his rapping style is so conversational, but you should definitely give his old stuff a chance.

"I Said Hey" isn't one of those songs where he tackles controversial issues (check "White Privilege", "Wing$", "Otherside"), but it remains my favorite Macklemore song.
