Can’t Hold Us

Are you as tired of “popping tags” as I am? Did you know that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis even had other songs? Did you know that their collaborative album in 2012 debuted at number 2 on the Billboard charts? At the ripe old age of 25, Ryan Lewis has made a name for himself as a producer, musician, director, photographer, graphic designer and DJ. Macklemore has been around for a while longer but really didn’t get much recognition until recently. The album “The Heist” isn’t even with a major label! The two seem to have found the magic formula for success with their collaboration. In addition to their own collaboration, they also have included a number of up and coming artists including Ray Dalton, Wanz, Mary Lambert, violinist Andrew Joslyn and trumpeter Owuor Arunga. Their sound may not appeal to main stream hip hop fans because of the use of unconventional instruments and West Coast style underground lyrics. Lately, I’ve been listening to anything with a brass horn section, and this fits the bill nicely. Check out their latest single below, “Can’t Hold Us.” ~cw4ll
