Here's Macklemore Wearing an Ohio State Basketball Jersey

Macklemore showed Ohio State basketball some love at the Schott last night.

Alt-turned-mainstream rapper and thrift shop aficionado Macklemore performed at the Schottenstein Center last night and ever the showman, he gave the people what they wanted, appearing in a No. 1 Ohio State basketball jersey at one point during the show. Of course, he also rocked a Mark Price Cavs jersey, too, so we're just going to go ahead and imagine Macklemore's suitcase full of hometown team threads.

Here's video from his performance last night, if that's your thing.

Can't believe I paused the Hampton Tweezer to listen to that.

I'm not turning off Arcade Fire to listen to it...that's for show.

I thought you would take me to the resurrector. Turns out it was just a reflektor.

Just a reflektor, just a reflektor!
That indeed was the album I was listening...which is probably pretty obvious at this point.

Here he is at the Voodoo Festival in NOLA with Eddie Vedder (I guess Eddie feels obligated to support Seattle acts?).

Of course he's sporting that Pelican jersey. So yeah, I'd say he gets a "hometown" jersey for each city he's in.

Ever the crowd pleaser. Would like to think he is a Buck but probably more of a Duck being from those parts.

He is from Seattle...

If I remember correctly, he's a huge Mariners fan.

I thought his song says he can't change, even if he wanted to?

Talk about being out of touch.  I figured Macklemore was a recruit and that him wearing an OSU jersey meant that he was leaning this way.  Instead I'm reminded that I'm old and unhip.  Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to watch Judge Judy and wait for some kids to come by so I can yell at them to get off my lawn.

Don't forget Matlock right before bedtime at 8:00.

Pop in Jeff Beck's Rock 'n' Roll Party (Honoring Les Paul) and take solace in the fact that there are better things in this world than being hip.

Macklamore ? Reminds me of vanilla ice! He'll be gone in a few months! Although he dresses well!  Looks like he shaves his pits as well!

Macklemore isn't a rapper. His entire career is a lie. He's the white Kid Cudi

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Whats wrong with Kid Cudi?

I love Cudi but he sucks live.  He was too high to remember his own lyrics.

Fan of bacon since 1981

Nothing. I'm not saying that being the white Cudi's a bad thing. I love Cudi. I just have problems calling either of them rappers.

He's a rapper, but his flow is more akin to spoken-word poetry than it is to actual rap. Content-wise, he's pretty solid, tends to be very socially aware, but has some goofy stuff too. Sometimes borders on too whiny. 
He had a song about white privilege on one of his old albums, and talked about how, while he's a rapper, he feels a bit guilty, since he doesn't know the struggle of most rappers, being from the inner city, which is rap got its start.
At least he's self-aware and socially conscious. I can respect that, and his music isn't bad.
His fans, on the other hand, annoy me. You know, the ones who heard "Same Love" and posted the video to Facebook with a caption like "OMG, finally a real rapper who doesn't just rap about money and bitches," when they don't actually listen to any other hip hop, besides the stuff on the radio.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

^^^So this. They complain about it but don't even try to expand past what is shoved down their throats. At least of late I've been hearing some okay mainstream hip hop artists with some good lyrics that aren't completely egotistical, but those aren't even their singles so they still go unnoticed. I wonder if it's just youth or if it's a change in culture. It's why I venture towards the indie sound/side of hip hop. So much more going on there and there are so many good lyricists there.

Yeah, take Lil Wayne he's pretty down to earth.

Did Whoopi Goldberg lose a ton of weight?

  1. Lil Wayne is actually a much, much more talented rapper than Macklemore, although he's pretty corny sometimes.
  2. Lil Wayne is about as mainstream as rap gets. And Young Money in general are really bad ambassadors of rap.
  3. Go listen to old Jay Z, and compare it to, say, new Jay Z. You'll see that rap gets a lot worse when it's egotistical.
  4. Listen to OutKast, then go listen to Macklemore. You'll see the difference in talent.

I have seen little evidence of little Wayne having talent. I listen to a lot of rap, have for a long time. Macklemore's,The Heist is the first rap album since Tupac died that I can put in and listen to every song.  Mack seem pretty down to earth, raps about relevant social issues, but still has a fun side on some songs, like Thriftshop, and And We Danced.  I also love OutKast. Jay Z is ok never really was a huge fan.  Nobody can ever compare to Tupac but Eminem is probably the best currently. 

TheBadOwl's picture

Really? Not Kendrick's GKMC or Kanye's MBDTF? 
Also, I loved Thrift Shop when it first came out, but it's gotten so overplayed. "And We Danced" still kills it, though.
Again, I like Macklemore's music, I'm not crazy about it, but he at least seems like an awesome dude. I'd say that a large portion of his fans are really ignorant, though.
As for Wayne not having talent, lyrically he's always been really good, as far as witticisms, but he's never really done anything with any social consciousness.

Fun fact: 70s and 80s rock bands wrote music about money and bitches all the time.

Fun fact: 99% of rap is written, and a hell of a lot more effort goes into production than you'd think.

I've spent plenty of time in studios, but thank you for telling me what I think.

Just listened to The Rolling Stones "Little T & A".  Mick and Keith killed with that one both poetically and instrumentally.
