I got to sit down with the man known as Macklemore before his show in Tempe last weekend. We speak about his new album going #2 on the charts, what his realistic expectations were sales-wise for the album, if he was scared of any backlash from the hip hop community when putting out the song "Same Love" and being vocal about gay marriage rights, his past battles with addiction and going to rehab, at what point he decided to take being a rapper serious in life, he also speaks about L.A. Reid flying to Missoula, Montana to try to sign him a couple of weeks ago, what it would take for him to sign to a major, being compared to Slug from Atmosphere, the influences Rhymesayers & Strange Music have had on what he does independently, how much of his actual wardrobe comes from thrift shops, and much more! Check out the entire interview!
