*UPDATE* Here is the official video.  Macklemore is my idol.  Prediction: Goodwill & Salvation Army sales suddenly spike 206%.  Enjoy!

Following their previous single, “Same Love”, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis lighten up a bit with their newest release, while Macklemore flaunts his god given talent of second hand shopping.  Kanye may be the most prolific dresser in the rap game, but nobody recycles threads like the Seattle MC.  The blurb below seems to be circulating the blogosphere and as expected, it’s an epic rant.  Enjoy the audio for tonight and expect the visuals at some point tomorrow! The Heist coming 10.9.12.

“I am the most prolific thrift shopper in the rap game right now. What Bob Barker is to the Price Is Right, I am to used fringe jackets.  My collection is worth anywhere between $70 and a $100,000,000 depending on who’s appraising it.  I’m gonna be honest, if it’s me…. I’m going with a million.  Count the zero’s.  That’s how many fur jackets I have.  Tell PETA my Mink, Fox, Rabbit, Coyote, and Hungarian Raccoon jacket are ALL dragging on the floor.  And I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way.  I love my animals.  But they’re dead.  And they’ve been dead for hella.  When I wear them, I’m bringing them back to life and introducing them to a whole new generation who wasn’t around when they were out in the woods doing their thing.  Those animals have now migrated from some old lady’s closet, to a thrift shop and are now getting their proper shine, up to 40 years later.  It’s recycling.  And recycling is beautiful, am I right?  That’s what this song is about.”  – Macklemore
