No one likes unnecessary boasting, but when you’ve turned your music into a worldwide touring force, landed a XXL Freshman spot and racked up DJBooth-approved track…yeah sure, go ahead and take a Victory Lap, you’ve earned it. For their latest video, Seattle duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis take a look at their long career and fast rise from teenage kids rocking stages to playing sold out arenas. Aided, as always, by Ryan Lewis’ clean and effectively inspiring production, Macklemore gives us a hint at his humble beginnings and stratospheric future: “Performing in front of eight people, that sh*t will check your ego / then watching our EP go, from nothing to getting us booked around the country.” Those ready to run alongside Macklemore and Ryan Lewis as they continue to take victory laps can check out this track on the new XXL Freshman ’12 Mixtape, or better yet, check out more of their music right here on The DJBooth.
