Just looked up Macklemore. Seriously dislike that "white-middle-class-funny-ironic-rap". Basically hiphop for guys who never liked hiphop. Not only that, but the whole concept and sound is so tired.
If I want "funny" hiphop, I'd much rather listen to some Ludacris, Lil B or any over-the-top south side rapper.
Edit: just listened to some more of his stuff and realized not all of it was like that. Based the above on "thrift shop". Anyway, don't like his other songs either. Poppy hiphop is not my thing at all.
