Chris introduced me to Macklemore a while ago, he's a good hubby. :) I like hip hop in moderation, I think my issue is that some of it gets redundant and others have too much violence or cursing for me. I can handle some cursing but when it sounds like they are trying to swear as much as they possibly can and it starts muddling the actual meaning of the lyrics... then I have an issue with that. Macklemore aka Ben Haggerty keeps it clean, deals with real issues and deeper meanings than a lot of hip hop artists now a days. Here is one of my favorite songs of his.
