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.
