Great point. With his latest single only having 22 million views on youtube and his current tour almost entirely sold out, I'm sure Macklemore's first reaction to hearing this story was to thank his lucky charms that he's finally receiving some exposure.

This is America, you should be allowed to hate on whomever you want.

He said overrated, not underpaid. You may have strengthened his point.

correct. however, your hate should not completely inhibit another person's right to love. or, in this case, play a song in a classroom.

He was referring to the "best thing that could have happened" part.

Cool of him to respond to this. Disappointing to know that we are still dealing with stuff like this at this point in time.

Should've just said "Thanks for all the free publicity, bro!" You know that's what he's thinking.

No it's not. I like Eminem and Asher Roth tons.

What this guy said^^^

Don't think he is anything special. I feel like others do what he does way better. Only good thing about that album was the production.

Really well written statement, we can only hope some good will come out of this situation.
