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.

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.

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!

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'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!

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

These guys create such well done music. Just check them out on youtube, and then purchase their albums. You won't be sad you did. They are a refreshing departure from the garbage that is played all day on the cookie-cutter rap staions. There is like some formula that rappers have to follow to be successful and Mack/RL flipped all of that.
As for this song, I think it sheds a better light on what drugs can do to a person and their life. It's pretty easy to just say someone is crazy when they have a mental disorder or someone is a junkie when they have dependency issues. This song really humanizes this painful reality that people face while trying to deal with addiction. It's a very well written and produced song.

Thrift Shop got me to listen to Macklemore, Wing$, Starting Over, Same Love and the rest got me to love his work. Serious, deep, personal, compelling, the man knows how to talk about heavier things in an entertaining and accessible way, while still keeping playfulness and sometimes goofiness in his work. Otherside is the first of his two admissions regarding addiction, and rings with the truth of one who has walked that dark road. Fingers crossed that he doesn't fall again, because I for one do not want to lose this brilliant talent.
