Macklemore: The Language of My World
Buy! - (NWXMusic)
Though he's now living in Olympia, this former Seattle rapper makes some sharp observations about racial and class injustice in his former hometown on this excellent album of underground hip hop. At times wickedly funny and often brutally honest (especially when rapping about his own shortcomings), Macklemore is a distinctive voice in the Northwest's burgeoning hip hop scene. 12/1/2005 - Don Yates
