The Heist is an iconic album; it marks Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ breakout into popular music. Despite being self-produced, self-recorded and self-released by the duo, the album was a smashing success, immediately topping Billboard charts upon its release. Each track displays Macklemore’s brilliance and goodwill. Thrift Shop is a celebration of Seattle’s crunchy culture and the ever growing trend to shop second hand. Same Love shook the world with its raw, emotional demand for gay rights. The song played on pop radio stations across the country, and less than two years after its release, the United States legalized gay marriage. Throughout The Heist, Macklemore’s compassion and authentic artistry is displayed. He is the king of collaboration, and the majority of his songs feature fellow Seattle musicians. The Heist remains celebrated by Seattleites young and old and is proof that Seattle’s music scene is still alive.
