So yesterday Macklemore showed up at my school for our annual May Day celebration. Yea I know Macklemore at Lakeside, as you might think the majority of the community was just not ready for his lyrical content. He performed a couple of different tracks from his album The Language Of My Whole a couple tracks I haven't heard before. The overall performance was great, Macklemore really worked with what he had, given the fact that audience was lacking greatly, and he could only say words like "damn" and "hell" causing some of his songs to sound incomplete. The best performance of the day was his "White Privilege" where he addresses his own struggle as a white rapper in the ever so changing industry of Hip-Hop. I felt that performance in general was received with mixed feelings in the crowd. Another Stand out performance of the day was "Love Song" which the Mack dedicated to a couple in the crowd adding to his already outstanding on stage charisma. Overall Macklemore did great with what he was given, got a few free burgers sold some tees so I'm sure he enjoyed himself. Support this local Artist
Peace to Aisha for bringing HipHop to Lakeside.
