Earlier this month, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis track “Wing$” was licensed in a commercial for the NBA All-Star break. The placement received some backlash for allegedly contradicting its underlying theme. Macklemore responded to the “sell-out” accusations last night on his website. Some people will never be satisfied.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are currently in Sydney, Australia. And during their performance at the Metro Theatre, Lil Jon joined them for a performance of “Thrift Shop”. In related news, the song is now three times platinum.
