#MusicMonday: “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore, Ryan Lewis and Wanz is already played on heavy rotation, but I’m featuring this song because I want to say three things about it:
- I like the rap’s message in contrast to many song that praise expensive luxuries above everything else.
- Macklemore is a white rapper. Skin color shouldn’t matter, but before seeing the video I was 100% sure that he is black. Call me prejudiced.
- As I just found out, this is just the second time in the history of the US billboard charts that the number one hit is from an independent label and not from one of the majors.
