On the last day of the Sasquatch! Music Festival, I had to opportunity to sit down with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, a hip-hop duo originating from Seattle. The following is an excerpt form our conversation.
Neil: So a lot of what you guys do is really centralized on the Northwest. Could you just speak a little bit about what it’s been like cultivating a fan base really strongly in the Northwest?
Macklemore: Um, I mean, for me, I grew up here. Here being Seattle, Washington. I’m extremely proud of our community and our city, and I watched a lot of people for a long time make records and look at different regions, like “Oh man, if we were just in Atlanta, or New York, or L.A. we’d be on, or whatever.” And I watched what the Blue Scholars did in Seattle, and what, you know, cultivating a fan base here, because they made music about here, and i watched that, and i was always doing that myself, but I watched that be successful, so I think that, I wanna put on for our city, and expose the world to how dope the music is, and how dope the scene is, and the best way to do that is to be honest and speak the truth about where we’re from, and that’s why I make songs about Seattle.
