Not now, Macklemore...

...not now.

The Seattle human male who talks fast into microphones streamed the free song (produced by his usual counterpart Ryan Lewis) on NPR, who highlighted this verse from Macklemore's (real name Ben Haggerty) self-righteous manifesto:

If I'm only in this for my own self interest,
Not the culture that gave me a voice to begin with
Then this isn't authentic, it is just a gimmick.
The DIY underdog, so independent.
But one thing the American dream fails to mention
Is that I was many steps ahead to begin with.

Good to know, Ben.
