Know that this one is not exactly safe for work. I hate to stereotype, or bring up race in a music blog post, but I’m just trying to give you some info. Macklemore is a white rapper, otherwise known as a rapper. He is from Seattle. Judging by this track, he is hilarious and has some friends making him nasty beats. I’m a fan.

Apparently, he named himself after retired baseball player Mark McLemore. Remember when he played for the Orioles? He was part of one of my favorite outfields in ’93–Brady Anderson in left, Mike Devereaux in center and McLemore in right. The O’s are back, baby!
