  • mikey

  • Roman Forten

    Grammy consideration next year?

  • B.Dot

    ^
    Wouldn’t be suprised

  • 2 cents

    Congrats to them, however it baffles me why and how b.dot rides so hard for this couple, had Wayne or drake or Kendrick or even j. Cole released the exact same song, I bet you’d be critiquing on how bad it is . The white couple do it and they get #1 underrated album of the year. Ha smh

  • Craddyshaq

    ^ Haters gonna hate!

  • trusoldier77

    i dont even no what this song sounds like. i should be ashamed.

  • Slim Baller

    “this is fucking awesome” lol calm your boner.

    • B.Dot

      @Slim Baller:

  • Anon DCPL

    Lmao @slimballer

    Congrats to these guys tho.

  • Slim Baller

    B. Dot i Never said I didn’t like the song or listen to it. It’s ight nothing crazy

    • B.Dot

      @Slim Baller but it was a play on wor…ah, never mind.

  • godvin

    these guys are the TRUTH! full independence from the major (blood sucking) labels. all other rappers and rap groups take notice BITCHES!! On how not to be a modern day SLAVE.

    god

  • zeee

    white people stay winning

  • naaah

    @zeee that’s because white people still buy music

  • Marko V

    How can u not see this and be inspired to pursue your dreams? Much respect to them.

    @remarkoble1

  • Prophet

    Hipster rap.

  • dmc

    wow, This is impressive.

  • Mike

    the raps are there but this track is corny

  • Your Life Is A Lie

    Independent and killing all your favorite acts slaving on a major label by being their own bosses, nice. Shout out to Lecrae doing it indy as well

  • Yeezus Christ

    heard this song on the radio, didnt know who it was by but it sounded good, looked it up and seen it was macklemore and i like wtf

  • Donn

    I can see the bias in the support cus Bdot never comments this much on other posts but they do deserve it, they made history but I did research their backing and they do have third party help that is linked to majors, a lot of politics to their success. Congrats to them and its nice to see HipHop back at #1. I think the last #1 rap song on the Hot 100 was Jay or Wiz Khalifa

  • it’s the roc

    Wow, amazing accomplishment. Helps that they get a lot of spins outside of urban radio, but hey, it is what it is. Is Macklemore creeping closer and closer to Jays spot on the B.Dot totem pole?

  • Chris

    Sorry B. Dot, song’s still corny as shit. I still think it’s rap music for people who don’t like rap music, and looking at the demographics of their fanbase, I think I’m right. People who look like B. Dot would stick out like a sore thumb at their shows.

    But good for them, their grind is to be commended.

  • Da VP

    Um, WHY do people like these guys again??

  • Liiife

    This music is not good hip hop. Seattle heads hate this fuckboy

  • Liiife

    Old white moms buy this album for their kids

  • it’s the roc

    @ Donn

    Who has success without politics in the music industry? If you do just a little more research, you’ll find out that nobody does.

  • Liiife

    They bump it in the van on the way to soccer practice

  • Evil

    Shitty song but congrats to the both of them.Not my kind of rap but America seems to like it so good for them.

  • mac DIESEL

  • E$CO

    LOL. @Mac Disel is cocker sucker and B-Dot’s biggest fan.

  • Gillette-shit

    Wow! That’s awesome! When wus the last time a hip hop record went no. 1 in all three categories, hot 100, r&b/hip hop, rap? I think after 2008 maybe, anyone?
    Anyways Macklemore is sure to be nominated for Grammy’s next year! Atleast for best new artist.. Great album, great achievement..

  • mac DIESEL

  • ryuk

    “I still think it

  • Luminous Story

    About time these dudes get their time! Definitely underrated.

  • DJ Game

    Hip-Hop is alive! Now we need some Nas, Kendrick, and real lyrics in the top! Lets do it!

  • RealHipHopBack

    This is great for hip hop regardless.

  • tucq

    I bought the album just out of curiosity.

    The production is high quality, and Mack can rap, but its very very “Pop” and very “Preachy” music. Not really my taste.

    I noticed that they don’t have a logo on the cd or a record company name. I think that’s what I like the most about it.

    But congrats, tho.

    Ladies and Gentlemans
    This an ode to the b-boy,b-girls,
    The people out there who do it for the love
    And believe me I’m not dissin’ anybody out there who’s trying to get paid,
    I’m trying to get paid too
    But I got one question

    Whatever happened to the heart
    That pumped the passion into the art
    The entity that gave you the energy to wanna start
    Break dancin’,imma battling doing it at the park
    Where the mission was expression not only to top charts
    I dont know what happened wanting to blow rap
    You lose soul and passion for the flows and the tracks
    Radio’s lackin’, controlled by Fascists assholes doin’ damage
    But we’re gunna take it back
    Before beats to a hundred g’s a pop
    All you needed was a table top and a beat box
    Hip-hop with out the b-boy is like shell toes only havin’ two stripes

    Hip-hop we’re freedom-fighting graffiti-writing party types,
    That recite and organize and revitalize our rhymin’ till the group of the money makers systems knows the industry can eventually get served.
    Breakers of my verses spinning up a revolutions throughout our words
    If you really want it come on get it cause i’ve got it
    I’m honestly paying homage to forgotten pioneers of this culture that are giving them props and learn.
    If you wanna earn your stripes
    You gotta be able to rock this mic and set cyphers alike.
    The feeling to put in everything you got in the circle, or never be documented in the Coke commercial.

    Now b-boys, b-girls,
    Bring it back to the block.
    Lemme see you get ill, for real, pop and lock.
    If you record without thought then stop,
    Because I’ll serve ya whole album with the goddamn beatbox.
    Without thought it just happens.
    If you gotta think to feel that’s not rapping that’s acting.
    I’m from a land of backpacks and fat-caps,
    MC’s with sick raps who serve those that are wack.
    It’s a way of life; I put all my energy into the melody on the MP3’s until the death of me,
    Record exceptionally, especially,
    Whenever I be monumentally, grammatically, killing the mic.

    I tell my DJ’s, cranking that music, keeping ‘em moving when the beat plays,
    Staying into it, breaking and grooving, and MC’s they,
    Thinking that you should always pursue in what their dreams make,
    Taking from lucid.
    All the people gotta make their money, and the way to make money is to get inside of the industry, take it on the radio, flow, so you can go blow, we get a car and a crib up on MTV, but,
    In the end what’s classic?
    Radio bubblegum? or a voice filled with passion?
    To my real hip-hop heads, please stand up,
    Cause the only people that can preserve this art is us.

  • zezzoi

    Ryan Lewis is a beast behind the boards. I’m curious if he’s gunna work with other artists

  • mitch

    Bubba sparks 2013. but seriously congrates to them but the song okay, only thing i like is that lewis sounds like nate dogg ‘a little’,

  • Dashing

    ^They’re literally nothing like Bubba Sparxx except for the fact that they’re white….nothing alike at all.

  • TRUTH

    shits a lil corny but hey..

  • Devante

    “Rap music for people who don’t like rap music”
    Lol best statement I heard in a while. Not to play the race card but white rappers never box them selves in. They always have elements of Pop, Rock an rap in their music…

  • Your Life Is A Lie

    This is ya’ll nigga coon-fest replacement as they begin to phase ya’ll out of the mainstream game once and for all. If you’re not on some homo/weirdo trip (Nicki Minaj to Odd Future and everything in between) you’re done

  • koO

    meh hipster pop. gratz on success tho

  • koO

    @Your Life Is A Lie: Kendrick Lamar

  • Linda

    B Dot! Ad Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s twitter links to the Twitter 100.

  • M.T

    Actually gave the album a full listen and it was really good! this was a good song too. congrats to these guys.

  • Roman_forten

    Honestly tho.

    All y’all fagets talking that white/black shit need to suck a dick

    A black man puts out a number one single and y’all swear he is little Michael growing up into thriller all over again.

    Face it. Honkey music gets the people going

  • Play player

    Cosign 2 Cents… If it was Drake or Wayne you will be all up in that ass hating and saying “sells dont ean nothin” blah blah. But you out here congratulating white boys eating off our plate, JT and these boys running the charts now… well such is life my niggas.

  • Judge Dredd

    Congratulations….however they are still wack. Not good hip hop…ha

  • Bianca

    Agree @ life is a lie black artist get no where near the exposure of white artist ive never heard this fuckin song..i mean shit for it to be number 1 just like mac miller being on billboard magazine. 10yrs ago 50cent was the biggest thing in rap and 20 yr ago it was snoop, bone thugs, pac, dr dre and nas. Its sad that these hipsters and drake are the big deals today and 10yrs from now there will be no blacks mentioned….remeber country and rock roll jazz and the blues…yea we once were the faces of those genres too

  • NYC

    I’m Black (If that matters) and the racism and prejudice is disguting. Everything isn’t for everyone, but stop using the race card to make your point.

  • russell

    its a fun, corny record, beats cool though

  • Johnny Ryall

    @NYC co-sign

    Comin up it never mattered what color you was. If you could spit then you could spit that’s it that’s what it was.

  • http://www.djradem.com DJ Rad’em

    The whole album is dope. It’s a true album, not a group of tracks. This, and Nas’ Life is Good are the best I’ve heard in a long time.
    As for the people who can’t get over skin color, Grow the fuck up!

  • DJ Semtex’s Prothsetic

    inb4 b.dot claims any credit on celebrating these guys- o w8

  • DJ Semtex’s Prothsetic

    this is kind of a sily song tho i dont think it deserves a number 1

  • Wall

    These guys never claimed to be anything.
    These guys didn’t get promoted.
    These guys succeded through their music, alone. No label.
    .
    Can’t hate on that.

  • TheCool

    The hate in these comments is crazy smh. Fuck outta here “whites are taking over Hip Hop”.

    This song wasn’t a hit cuz he’s white, it’s cuz it’s a catchy, positive song.

    If whites are taking over, where is Machine Gun Kelly? His trash ass did 50k first week, even less then Tyler, The Creator, WITH a major label backing him. And Mac Miller? Dude’s already becoming irrelevant.

    Kendrick did 250k, Cole 280k, ASAP 150k. Kanye, Jay, and Drake are all doing over 500k. Macklemore is the only white MC making big noise, and it’s cuz he makes good music. Whites ain’t taking over shit, if anything, Macklemore is a good thing for Hip Hop. Wether or not you think the album sounded corny, the production was well crafted, and Macklemore’s flow is dope.

    And btw, I haven’t even heard the album. I’ve only heard about 5 songs, and I wasn’t into ‘em much, except for Wings. This is just the truth.
