i don't have an issue with you posting this album but the thread title is so irritating as someone who actually really into this music.
Fair 'nuff. A friend and I were discussing the impact this album, being the highest selling album on iTunes as an indie, could have on the industry as a whole. Plus, I think the whole album is phenomenal. It's one man's opinion. If it irritates you, c'est la vie.
i understand what you're saying but corny white rappers do numbers because people like you will buy music. mac miller (an independent artist) was number one on the chart when his album came out. the majority of people who really listen to rap don't buy albums even if we like them which is definitely unfortunate. there have been rappers who have had independent success since before maclmores was born and there will always continue to be. but as long as major labels are offering deals rappers are still going to accept them.
lol at your corny white rapper line. Who you think I listen to and buy? I've never bought a white rapper's album (prior to this one), barely buy anyone's albums anymore. I don't buy music unless I really love it. Maybe an album or two a year.
I'm not a Mac Miller fan. Some of his earlier ish was solid, but lately it just makes my head hurt.
I dig Macklemore, just as i do Mac Miller. I just wish a dude like Dumbfoundead got as much hype around his releases. Seems every decent white rapper gets magnified as being greater than they are and actually make bank compared to other indie rappers aren't white but just as good.
More support him would be greatly appreciated, he's been one of my faves for a couple of years now. Sick rapper.
I think I can safely say now that even though there's really no comparison as artists, The Heist as a project is better than any Eminem project, yeah I said it. What a classic album. I can't believe I put off listening to the album for so long. ****ing phenomenal album. Take a bow Macklemore.
