Do you hear that? It’s Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, getting ready to take over every season after winter with the impending release of their sophomore album, This Unruly Mess I’ve Made.
The lead single, “Downtown,” has already been burned out and is only hours from one hundred million plays on YouTube. Their follow-up single, “White Privilege II,” had the entire rap world talking. Now, with ten days until the highly-anticipated release, the Grammy-Award-winning duo unveiled the project’s tracklist.
There are obvious surprises with random guests like Idris Elba, Jamila Woods and YG, along with chess move tracks featuring bubbling hitmakers Ed Sheeran and Leon Bridges. But the real exclamation might be their choice to feature even more hip-hop veterans, as KRS-One and DJ Premier are featured on “Buckshot.” Make as many “White Privilege” jokes as you want, but the fact is the OGs will be getting some nice checks for years to come thanks to the Seattle duo’s sign of appreciation.
