Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Thrift Shop f. Wanz (Video)

blame it on Shake August 29, 2012

Directed By Jon Jon Augustavo, Ryan Lewis & Ben Haggerty.

Now that their new single is available on iTunes, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis reveil it’s equally dope video. And just because the original write-up was so good, here it is again.

I am the most prolific thrift shopper in the rap game right now. What Bob Barker is to the Price Is Right, I am to used fringe jackets. My collection is worth anywhere between $70 and a $100,000,000 depending on who’s appraising it. I’m gonna be honest, if it’s me… I’m going with a million. Count the zero’s. That’s how many fur jackets I have. Tell PETA my Mink, Fox, Rabbit, Coyote, and Hungarian Raccoon jacket are ALL dragging on the floor. And I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way. I love my animals. But they’re dead. And they’ve been dead for hella. When I wear them, I’m bringing them back to life and introducing them to a whole new generation who wasn’t around when they were out in the woods doing their thing. Those animals have now migrated from some old lady’s closet, to a thrift shop and are now getting their proper shine, up to 40 years later. It’s recycling. And recycling is beautiful, am I right? That’s what this song is about. – Macklemore

  • Kevone

    Macklemore and Ryan Lewis is one of the best, for sure.

  • Bongwater

    this is corny as FUCK

  • Tyler Durden

    this shit is some feel good have fun shit…by the way is that budo coming out the dumpster?

  • Thank Me

    Macklemores lyrical content range is serious always and underlying theme. Funny video

  • ComSense

    Seriously?!?!?! I can’t tell if this dunce is a hipster or a preppy, but he’s wack. His raps are just wack, period. One interview their wearing matching polos, the next they’re upping fucking thrift shop clothes (like it’s not already a huge fad for hipsters everywhere).

    Note: I like white rappers, nothing to do with race, dude is just terrible.

  • JCMN

    hella filthy.

  • @Tyler Durden, Budo produced almost all of Mack’s first full length from 05, so it most likely is.

  • Jay

    So basically hes a hipster..

  • bang


  • who cares

    The word “hipster” needs to get destroyed, people don’t even use it right.
    OT: Only Macklemore could get away with a song/video like this. I swear to god this shit is hilarious.

  • DoloMC

    crazy creative. people gonna hate whats different.

  • William

    My new favorite song. If you don’t like it, you might consider reading it with a copy of the lyrics close at hand. It might make a world of difference. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go set up my tent; there’s a new Goodwill opening up a few miles away and I’m not missing all that glorious Fubu.

  • Joel

    I really just dont like this dudes music, he raps to basic

  • Ryan G

    @ComSense listen to “otherside” and tell me he is terrible. He was just having fun on this one, and it was badass
