Really great song.
Levistus
This is an amazing song with a deep meaning, rhythmical and deep lyrics, and amazing beat to match the amazing musical artists in the song.

Recently discovered Macklemore's style from a YouTube video and looked into his other songs and quickly became a fan.

Macklemore is probably best know for his thrift shop song, with its silly lyrics, made for youtube style and wild hipster clothes, but this song really showcases a more serious and honest side of the rapper and tells of drug use, the influence that stars have on young people and loss. Very well written and performed.

Seattle is the birthplace of Hendrix, origins of Quincy Jones, Jackson Street clubs, grunge and the indie-rock revolution of the late 80s and early 90s. In an effort not to be too audacious, Macklemore, Ryan Lewis and The Fences are filling those very, very large shoes. Seattle has always created it's own unique sound and style. How many musical Mecca's can boast at being both an epicenter of Jazz clubs along Jackson Street as well as starting it's very own musical and fashion movement? In sticking with Seattle tradition of being inimitable, a fashion movement consisting of thrift store items, and as Sub Pop's Jonathan Poneman said so very eloquently, "This [clothing] is cheap, it's durable, and it's kind of timeless. It also runs against the grain of the whole flashy aesthetic that existed in the 80s." If you're even contemplating purchasing this brilliant song I would most definitely recommend you do, you will not be disappointed. You may even enjoy it enough to purchase more, for the video to this great song check out Macklemore.com. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis create great original music with meaning which is such a rare quality these days.

I'm 45 years old and not a rap lover. Never have been. I like Pop, Country, Rock, Classical, Blues and other types. This song is bravoness!

Macklemore & Ryan are brilliant! Thought provoking, intense, courageous wordsmiths and electrifying music makers- not since Bob Dylan's lyrics in the 60's have I been so blown away by the message and the messenger. Their newest album "The Heist" is pure rap genius!

Song about drug addiction, sad, beautiful, moving, his songs hit you in the heart and don't let go until they're finished.

The first time I heard this song I was struck by the message. It's amazing to hear a rapper use their voice and influence to counter the drug culture of rap music.

I heard a song on the album The Heist and was impressed by the lyrics and the blend of two types of music. The song I heard referenced this song so I decided that I wanted to hear it. I love the lyrics and the blend but I was made aware of who exactly it was that I was listening to and I lost interest quickly. There was no good beat to go with this song so the best thing about it was the lyrics. However, I am stumped as to what he means when he talks about two styrofoam cup. Is he talking about cough syrup? I am lost. Is this a new thing or what?

Great song, heard it reference in the song "Starting Over" and had to give it a listen. I loved it but honestly think he topped it with "Starting Over", that song gets to me every time.
