I’ve said multiple times how no matter what controversy erupts for Macklemore, he faces the storm alone. Meanwhile, his Heist partner Ryan Lewis never gets up wet up by the hate. His name’s never mentioned and no questions asked. Nope, the producer’s always standing away from the fray, just shining his Grammy trophies.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon decided to test notion by sending Lewis out in the streets to talk with what were supposed to be fans of rap and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Much like when Drake pulled the same stunt, he wears a slight disguise but that didn’t matter. He could’ve walked out bareface and these people still wouldn’t know who he was.
