5 Reasons Why Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Are Awesome (NOT Including Thrift Shop)

The effortless "cool" of this picture just makes me really happy.
So "Thrift Shop" is great and everything, but it wasn't until I heard some of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's other songs that I realized how fantastic these guys really are. Macklemore has that amazing voice, and Ryan Lewis has a great ear for instruments and beats. They really aren't bad on the eyes. Not bad on the eyes at all. And top it off with their grungy, simple style...Baby you've got a stew going!!!!

I'm actually really loving this minimalist hip hop revival. I don't love rap often, but give me a rapper with a memorable voice and I'm sold.

Can't Hold Us, because it takes talent to rap this quick without sounding winded. And the piano chorus just inspires good emotions.

Because this party looks amazing.

They hail from the great city of Seattle. And really, Seattle never disappoints:
Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Chris Cornell, Sir Mix-A-Lot. Starbucks. The Ring...

Bombom, because it's a really peaceful instrumental track that you'd never expect on a hip hop album.

Neon Cathedral, because who doesn't love a good neon cathedral?

Because seriously, they are dapper as fuck.

Wings, because of pop culture. And because we haven't had a song about shoes since Air Force One.

Same Love, because it's just a really good song about relevant issues in society today.

Because they prove themselves worthy in a live performance on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.

10/10, I'd definitely pay to see them live.
