I'm sure almost everyone has heard of him by now .. Macklemore. I don't like mainstream music much, this guy is talented.
Why I like him? He's independent and up to this point refuses to sign to a major label. He never takes himself very seriously and for being small'ish .. he makes awesome videos. Oh, and he's local .. homegrown in Seattle, Wa.
His biggest hit, Thriftshop, has over 140 million views on Youtube. It's good.

"Otherside" Deeper about his struggle with addiction:
