Macklemore - City Don’t Sleep feat. Don-P

So this week I was bored at work and picked up some magazines to browse while I was being a model employee. XXL Magazine does this yearly list of the “Top 10 Freshmen” which is basically a round-up of hip-hop acts “to look out for” and I decided to check out a few of the the artists. Some I hadn’t heard of (Future; eh, Don Trip; eh), some I had heard of and listened to (Iggy Azalea; ehh maybe, Machine Gun Kelly; no ) and then there was Macklemore. Ben Haggerty, born in raised in Seattle Washington, has been making music since 2000 and so I figured I’d check out his earlier work. The Language of My Mind, released in 2005, turned out to be a great find for me and I’ll probably listen to it quite a few times before I get bored with it. Enjoy socially conscious music? Have I got a treat for you! Now press play.

By the way, you can pretend this song was written and released last week and it’s still too relevant for comfort.

    Macklemore has been one of my favorite artists for a while now. This is from back in ‘05 but still kills it. Great beat,...
