Macklemore & Ryan Lewis return to the studio
After a whirlwind 2013 that included two No. 1 singles and seven Grammy nominations, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are back in the studio working on a follow-up to “The Heist.” Early this morning (Jan. 10), Macklemore posted a picture of Ryan Lewis to Instagram with the message: "Very happy to be back in the lab with this guy.”
Macklemore recently spoke to The Source about his success, saying that Kanye West was among the fans of his breakthrough song "Thrift Shop.” He explained that with widespread fame came a fair share of haters. "I'm a white dude from Seattle. People are rightfully skeptical of white people making hip-hop,” Macklemore said, hinting that “Thrift Shop” may have hindered as much as helped them. "The song almost got too big. People weren't able to see the rest of the album for what it was. They put us in the one-hit wonder box.”
For their next album, Macklemore said that he and Lewis plan to stay independent and avoid signing to a major label.
