Can’t Hold Us

Length: 4:13

Release: 2013

Opening Lyrics:

Hey, hey, hey
Good to see you
Come on, dude, let’s go
Yeah! Let’s go!
Ha-ha-ha-ha alright
Alright, okay
Uh, alright, okay
Alright, okay
Return of the Mack
Get ’em, what it is, what it does, what it is, what it isn’t
Looking for a better way to get up out of bed
Instead of getting on the Internet
And checking on who hit me, get up
Thrift shop, pimp-strut walkin’
Little bit of humble, little bit of cautious
Somewhere between like Rocky and Cosby
Sweater game, nope-nope, y’all can’t copy

Thrift Shop

Length: 3:55

Release: 2012

Opening Lyrics:

Hey, Macklemore, can we go thrift shopping?
What? What? What? What?
What? What? What? What?
What? What? What? What?
What? What? What? What?
What? What? What? What?
What? What? What? What?
What? What? What? What?
What? What? What? What?
I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I’m, I’m, I’m hunting, looking for a come up
This is fucking awesome.
Walk into the club like “What up? I got a big cock!”
Nah, I’m just pumped, bought some shit from a thrift shop
Ice on the fringe is so damn frosty
People like “Damn, that’s a cold ass honky!”
Rolling in hella deep, headed to the mezzanine


Length: 4:52

Release: 2015

Opening Lyrics:

I went to the Moped store, said fuck it
Salesman’s like what up, what’s your budget?
And I’m like honestly, I don’t know nothing about Mopeds
He said I got the one for you, follow me
Ooh, it’s too real
Chromed out mirror, I don’t need a windshield
Banana seat, a canopy on two wheels
Eight hundred cash, that’s a hell of a deal
I’m headed downtown, cruising through the alley
Tip-toeing in the street like Dally
Pulled up, moped to the valley
Whitewalls on the wheels like mayonnaise
Dope, my crew is ill, and all we need is two good wheels
Got gas in the tank, cash in the bank
And a bad little mama with her ass in my face
I’mma lick that, stick that, break her off, Kit-Kat
Snuck her in backstage, you don’t need a wristband

Same Love

Length: 5:20

Release: 2012

Opening Lyrics:

When I was in the 3rd grade
I thought that I was gay
Cause I could draw, my uncle was
And I kept my room straight
I told my mom, tears rushing down my face
She’s like, “Ben you’ve loved girls since before pre-K”
Trippin’, yeah, I guess she had a point, didn’t she
A bunch of stereotypes all in my head
I remember doing the math like
“Yeah, I’m good at little league”
A pre-conceived idea of what it all meant
For those who like the same sex had the characteristics
The right-wing conservatives think its a decision
And you can be cured with some treatment and religion
Man-made, rewiring of a predisposition


White Walls

Length: 3:40

Release: 2013

Opening Lyrics:

I wanna be free, I wanna just live
Inside my Cadillac, That is my shit
And I throw it up (I throw that up)
That’s what it is (that’s what it is)
In my C.A.D.I.L.L.A.C bitch (biatch)
Can’t see me through my tints (nah ah)
I’m riding real slow (slow motion)
In my paint wet drippin shorty like my 24’s
I ain’t got 24’s (no oh)
But I’m on those Vogues
That’s those big white walls, round them hundred spokes
Old school like Olde English in that brown paper bag
I’m rolling in that same whip that my granddad had
Hello haters, Damn y’all mad
