    Hooray lets celebrate the Fall Out Boy of rap.. In 2 years this hipsterish style will die out like emo, affliction. ed hardy. von dutch whatever.. Theres a rapper that captures that sound for that 1-3 year period. This dudes fans will stop buying his music like the fans of fall out boy did and we won’t hear from him again.. The experiment is almost over folks.

    Nothing to do but ride this terrible storm out.

    Interestingly, as well as being a clearly subpar MC with a terrible flow & corny subject matter, it appears that Macklemore can’t make a hit by himself.

    Oh well. His music is garbage but he’s clearly worked his ass off. So, congrats to him.

    mackelmore is a fanook.

  • Yup Whatever

    @DMVinyourchick im kinda on the same page with the “Where is his core following” but im pretty sure for this particular song , gays and equal rights supporters were the consumers especially after the law passing recently. I seen it coming regardless. Note:He Maybe Seattle is his core since its his hometown.

  • Black Shady

    wtf. this nigga sold like 10milli off singles ALONE
    plus his album going plat

    yo B.dot can you explain to me Macklemore’s contract??? I’m really curious. is he completely independant? or a distribution deal? i really want to understand how the fuck is he gettin that much backup from the radio and how the fuck is he selling that much haha

    congrats tho!

  • B.Dot

    @Black Shady

    YEs, he’s independent. He’s not selling albums out the trunk of his car, so he hired ADA to distribute his album. Same goes for radio. He hired them to handle their radio singles.

    When it’s all said and done, Mack and Ryan’s publishing checks will look like winning Powerball tickets . They own 100% of their publishing and abstain from samples too.

  • Mitch

    Congrats B Dot! you’ve got to be one happy guy :) haha!
