The talent that these guys have is good reason that the Seattle duo has taken the industry by storm.  If you took the lyrics off a Ryan Lewis instrumental the beats would still be songs in their own right (a distinction I’d give old school Kanye West and Xaphoon Jones production) and Macklemore’s ability to bring a message or story to a song is extraordinary. Take the re-release of their 2010 song ‘Stay At Home Dad’ for example; the goofy wordplay detailing the struggles being a stay at home Dad over a super-smooth beat (that sampled a Xaphoon Jones production by the way). Never thought I’d ever be hearing the phrase “Shit, it’s 4 o’clock, time for OPRAAAHHH” in a hip-hop track. Maybe these dudes should link up with the dude Lil Dicky?
