Seattle rapper Macklemore and his collaborator Ryan Lewis have been in the eye of hip hop lovers for a few years. Shortly after they dropped The Heist back in October, they watched their album crawl up the Billboard charts to #2. This week, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performed on TV for for the first time ever, courtesy of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
Decked out in thrift shop couture (scent unknown) and obviously thrilled, they performed their feel-good single Thrift Shop with singer Wanz and a little help from The Roots.
Cheers to you, boys, for saying the words "skeet blanket" for perhaps the first time on TV ever! The performance got even more fun when Macklemore ran into the audience with his mic and started tossing out clothes:
Earlier this week, the group also performed a concert in YouTube’s offices and did a Q&A. (And were paid in tube socks, apparently.) You can watch them perfom Thrift Shop, 10,000 Hours and Same Love and other songs.
