Given the extraordinary success of MacklemorE & RYAN LEWIS on their breakout LP, The Heist, it's fair to say that the Seattle rapper Macklemore has won in most every way of late—except for winning over his skeptics. The backlash from his pro-gay single, "Same Love," found a fraction of the LGBT community combating the notion that he was, in any way, their spokesperson, and others strangely lamenting this version of a hip-hop soapbox. Meanwhile, the multi-platinum single "Thrift Shop" bred a gaggle of anti-white boy rage, thanks to the duo's urban radio invasion. Most of these critics dismissed Macklemore's 12-year grind on the underground hip-hop circuit, a path celebrated in both the handclapping anthem "Can't Hold Us" and each flamboyant second of his live shows. The guy's earned his fame. —Eric Tullis
