Macklemore’s hip-hop for thrifters is on

At the absolute risk of sounding like a f***in’ hipster, we swoon for Seattle hip-hop team Macklemore and Ryan Lewis‘ track “Thrift Shop.” Because if you haven’t worn a new score to the club that smelled like piss ‘cuz you forgot to wash it, you’re probably getting fleeced by corporate clothing America. Try to avoid sadness while comparing our Goodwill bins to those of the Northwest shown in the video. The Bay’s got ups on those to the north in other ways… just not used clothing stores. They win on that. Macklemore’s on fire right now with The Heist, his new release that’s been fueling a string of sold-out tour dates — including a gig on Sun/21 at the Fillmore.
