The Making Of Macklemore | OUT
How a straight white rapper from Seattle wrote hip-hop’s first gay anthem.
“Each night is different — you never know,” Macklemore says [of “Same Love”]. “To see 6,500 people put their hands up in support of equality is a beautiful thing. It’s honestly been the highlight of touring.”
Stacy wrote a feature for OUT Magazine on Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. “I knew I wanted to write a song about gay rights, about marriage equality, and about homophobia in hip-hop, but I didn’t know how to do it,” Macklemore says about the song, which eventually became a personal tale.
