I’ll wear your grand-dad’s clothes/I look incredible
from Thrift Shop lyrics by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (feat. Wanz)
Macklemore has made a career (and now a #1 album) through hip hop hipsters – hopsters -and damn if he’s not amazing at it. This jam reinvents swag for fiscally-minded shoppers in hipster meccas a la Portlandia with some sharp humor: “Probly shoulda washed this, it smells like R. Kelly‘s sheets.”
