Default Anybody else think this Macklemore rapper sounds like Eyedea?

No it's not because he's white but his actual voice and rap style remind me of dead underground legend Eyedea. Anybody else? I heard this song on TNT tonight after the game and at first I thought it was Eyedea.

I liked this one I posted quite a bit to get you pumped for a workout. Didn't mean he's equal to Eyedea, just similar voice and delivery in the handful of songs I heard.

No, why do people who suck lyrically put rap about "real sh*t" get more credit than people who are actually good. Macklemore is an awful lyricist and rap should be about the lyrics. You can't tell me someone who COMPLETELY ignores rhyming so god damn often is a good lyrical rapper. No one values skill no more smh.

Like one of his most popular songs Wings, yeah it's inspirational but listen to the lyrical content, it's fu*king pathetic. Anyone can pick up a mic and just talk about shit like that.

It's inspirational but the content is pathetic? What? He rhymes just fine; it's just a slow beat, and he's not double timing it.

Anyway, I'm not a fan of his, but I appreciate what he's doing for the genre. He brings in a lot of people who would not be listening to rap otherwise.

Pretty much all of his rhymes are one syllable and simple as hell when he ACTUALLY RHYMES. Dude is awful. If he can be a rapper anyone can. Just talk about corny sh*t with an over the top voice and have incredibly simplistic lyrics while ignoring rhyming all together a lot of the time.
