Quote of the Week: Macklemore

"We made a great album, but I do think we have benefited from being white and the media grabbing on to something. A song like "Thrift Shop" was safe enough for the kids. It was like, 'This is music that my mom likes and that I can like as a teenager,' and even though I’m cussing my ass off in the song, the fact that I’m a white guy, parents feel safe. They let their six-year-olds listen to it. I mean, it's just… it's different. And would that success have been the same if I would have been a black dude? I think the answer is no."

Ben "Macklemore" Haggerty (born 19 June 1983), GRAMMY-award winning American rapper and half of Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis.

Quote of the Week: Hayao Miyazaki
