Lou The Human is a rapper’s rapper.

From Staten Island, Lou The Human shares the grungy aesthetic of South Florida’s rap scene, or the early days of Odd Future, but his rapping takes on a different vibe. For “Slim Buddha” he spits a series of relentless bars that Pigeons and Planes compared to those of Eminem. While that might be a lofty comparison (more of a mixture of Mac Miller and Wiki), he’s definitely talented, is a great story teller,  displays extensive versatility on the mic and is subtly more vulgar than any rapper we’ve heard in awhile. Check out his other two songs, “Macklemore” and “Brink” below “Slim Buddha.”

Your silence is a luxury: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis drop “White Privilege II”

246b1f71d67f5afdc5b34600e6d706a9

There’s been a lot of controversy lately surrounding the presence of white artists in hip hop and pop, #blacklivesmatter, police brutality and the stealing of black culture for profit by white artists. That being said, Macklemore has been at the forefront of the controversies. Most notably when he won a grammy for best hip hop album of the year in 2014 over Kendrick Lamar’s good kid maad city. Though he hasn’t talked about it much publicly he’s finally touched on his privileges via a new song with Ryan Lewis. This 9 minute song is incredibly interesting and open to say the least. What are your thoughts on Macklemore saying these things? Check out some of the quotable lyrics from the song below.

“You’ve exploited and stolen, the music, the moment
The magic, the passion, the fashion, you toyed with
The culture was never, yours to make better.
You’re Miley, you’re Elvis, you’re Iggy Azalea.
Fake and so plastic, you heisted the magic.
You’ve taken the drums, and the accent rapped in.
Your brand of hip-hop, is facist and backwards
That Grandmaster Flash should go slap you, you bastard.
All the money you made off the watered down
Pop bullshit version of the culture pal.”

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis- “Downtown”

largeApple Music recently debuted the first real single from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis titled “Downtown.” The single seems like a throwback to all those old school hip-hop tracks of the 80’s. The video is just as outrageous as the song and I can see this one getting some serious radio play. Expect the follow up to The Heist to come really soon. Stream and watch “Downtown” below.

Either way it is new Macklemore. Be sure to stream this down low and expect more on his new album soon.

Macklemore has been relatively quiet since his last album and fans are beginning to get antsy. Yesterday someone tweeted at Macklemore wondering why he doesn’t have a new Macklemore album. Macklemore responded saying that he will definitely have something coming this year. How do you feel about a new Macklemore album on the way?
