My New-Found Love


I come to you today as another statistic. I come to you today as just one more person that has been sucked into something huge. I come to you to say: this is everything I am and everything I would ever want to be.

Let’s talk about the words of Macklemore because, sad as you may find it, that is what this is all about. Let’s talk about this unsigned rapper who is topping charts and taking names. We could talk about his number one hit, but let’s not. Let’s go deeper.

Let’s consider the fact that he raps about almost the opposite of what every other rapper in the market raps about. Let’s notice that he’s not afraid to address difficult topics. 

Sure, he has some fun and write some ridiculously silly raps (‘And We Danced’), but then again, he has some raps about things that other people won’t address at all (‘Same Love’, ‘Otherside’). We’re living in a world where so many opinions and words are repressed and shoved back down our throats and this man (because, yes, he’s just a man) has broken through in so many ways.

I can only hope that his words inspire people to be better, because that’s really what he’s saying most of the time. Some examples?

A life lived for art is a life never wasted.

I might not be the same, but that’s not important. No freedom ’til we’re free; damn right I support it.

Make the money, don’t let the money make you. Change the game, don’t let the game change you.

Are three examples enough to show to you the excellence of all of this? To add beautiful insult to much-wanted injury, this is more than just words. These words are so beautifully rapped and rhymed and composed that there’s nothing you can do but get locked in.

I’m sorry this blog keeps discussing music, but we could all learn something from Macklemore. Really, we could. 

Oh, and Ben grew up listening to the Cats Soundtrack and watching the Cats movie and somehow that was his inspiration. Love of my life right there, Batman Onesie and all.

I’ll meet you at the Thrift Shop, Macklemore.

Love ya!
