About Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Comprising rapper Macklemore, real name Ben Haggerty, and DJ/Producer Ryan Lewis, the pair entered the limelight after they released their debut album, The Heist, in 2012. It debuted at No.2 on the Billboard 200, before reaching the No.1 spot.
Despite what seemed instant success in the charts, it was a grassroots beginning for the band who built a huge following through social media.
Macklemore teamed up with Ryan Lewis in 2010. It was after Macklemore had been trying to make it on his own under the guise of Professor Macklemore since 2000. As a solo artist he created a strong local following with his debut album, The Langue of My World.
The pairing proved to be a winning combination. Their Vs. Redux EP landed them a number of hits that were heavily shared across social sites, including Otherside, My Oh My and Can’t Hold Us.
In 2012, they independently recorded, produced and released The Heist. It landed the No.1 spot on iTunes on the day of its release. The Heist went on to earn the pair four Grammy Awards, including the award for Best Rap Album.
One of their most notable singles from the album is their LGBT rights track Same Love that features vocals from Mary Lambert. They performed the song at the Grammy Awards while 33 couples married during the performance. Another huge track lifted from The Heist is Thrift Shop, which charted at No.1 in the UK.
After touring the world, the pair returned with their brand new single Downtown. The song features Kool Moe Dee, Grandmaster Caz, Melle Mel and Eric Nally.
