Macklemore’s ‘Thrift Shop’ single goes platinum

macklemoreIn less than six months since its release, Seattle rapper Macklemore’s single “Thrift Shop” has gone platinum. The song, an homage to budget fashion, has been camped on the Billboard charts for 12 weeks, most recently holding strong in the No. 10 slot.

And in true indie spirit, Macklemore and his partner in rhyme, Ryan Lewis, are bucking trends by releasing their music sans a label.

    Even though this article is over two months old, I love this song and I'm glad to see its still doing so well. Its rediculously catchy. Maybe releasing their music independantly is a good idea, and they'll reap the rewards instead of a music label sucking it up
