Today, the 2012-2013 Pop Culture Golden Child / “hardly home, but always reppin” (206) flag-waver / the homie MACKLEMORE stopped by the most relevant Hip-Hop radio station in America, New York’s own Hot 97, to chop it up w/ Peter Rosenberg (the 1st & last time I saw him was around ’05-’06 in my home studio doing drops w/ Kev Brown). The topics ranged from his respect for Kendrick Lamar, to whites in Hip-Hop, speaking on homophobia in Hip-Hop (albeit a little inaccurately; as MURS was the 1st to address the subject head on – the mic – *PAUSE*), his past drug addiction, & what it’s like to blow up. At the 3:51 mark, he also touches on his roots & ascent in the ranks of Seattle’s Hip-Hop scene of the 90’s thru present day, & threw me & my man Jake One a shout. From one power player to another couple of em, good lookin’ out fellas. #WhosMakingItLastForeva?
BONUS: MACKLEMORE FREESTYLE – Wu-Tang (along w/ Tribal Productions, Jasiri Media Group, Blind Council, Jace & Blak, Black Anger, True Believers Crew & a host of other 206 trues) raised him. The boy’s SNAPPIN’ on this joint, even harder than he did on BET’s 106 & Park ‘Back Room’. Stop hatin’.
