Macklemore & Ryan Lewis present the official music video for Can't Hold Us feat. Ray Dalton. Can't Hold Us on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/cant-..
When I began to put together this issue of RealTalk, I was going to try to investigate why everyone thinks K. Michelle is crazy (for the record I don't. Emotional yes, crazy no.). But in looking at the charts this week it came to my attention that Macklemore & Lewis had two singles in the top ten of Billboard this week (I thought noone was buying music. That's what I was told SMH). What an independent is selling without the blessings of the the Boss Rick Ross. You mean some one has went around the major labels. I can't believe they were able to do this without the illuminati (GTFOH LMAO). For the record the theory of the reason these guys are selling more than Gucci Mane is not because of some conspiracy from white executives from the major label to take over Hip Hop ( why, because they are not on a major label). These guy just do good music that's visually creative. that's it.
I love Scarface but his staements about the labels borderlined on being bigoted. How can people come from a culture of fighting intolorence become the intolorent. We should celebrate these guys for having a dream and turning it into green.
Sometimes as Blacks maybe we are to sensitive. I mean Scarface, Jay Prince, Suge Knight, Dame Dash, Luther Campbell were all guys that made good money off hip hop. Why didn't they take their money and become distributors? Who knows? But we have to celebrate guys like Macklemore and Lewis because they did it their way.
Even with this video, this video was about Americans of all colors, creeds and social cultures. This video is about exploring new vistas and creating a new world.
Blacks with money in hip hop have got to quit being cry babies about someone's taking hip hop and come to terms that hip hop has just grown up both as a cultural communication tools and trend setting brand statement. If you want to see great music that's being sold by someone who is different and innovative then check out Macklemore & Lewis.
I mean 2 soundtrack cuts on major Movie soundtracks (Pain & Gain and The Internship). The OKC Thunder have made their song "Can't Hold Us" as their hype song for the team (that's 18,000 potential buyers every game). This group is turning out to be the new age Tag Team "Whoop There It is". You see "Whoop There It Is" is the largest selling single in the music business behind "White Christmas"(That a real accomplishment).
These guys sell because their fans buy. Its that simple.
I'm Reggie Redd and that's RealTalk
