[Top 40] “Thrift Shop” – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Wanz


If you have yet to hear this song, please remove the rock you’ve been sitting under. Kidding! But seriously.

Thrift Shop was brought onto the scene by newcomers Macklemore, a rapper hailing from Seattle and his producer Ryan Lewis. This song, which is about shopping, is a fifth and final single from their album The Heist. And yes, it’s actually hilarious. The chorus goes something like this:

“I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is f*cking awesome.”

Then there is a reference to R. Kelly’s bed sheets smelling like urine and then something about your grammy, your aunty, your momma and your mammy. A classic really, which still made its way to #31 on Ryan Seacrest’s Top 40 charts and the Billboard Top 100. Word.

What could be more entertaining than two white boys spitting rap, riding around on a bicycle and bearing $20 pimp jackets?

Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
