Love this post, although I would counter that Macklemore and Ryan Lewis haven’t bitten the hands that never fed them in the first place. The SharkFaceGang Movement is completely outside the old system, which I adore!
This is the number one album on iTunes as I write this:
“The Heist” Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
It contains the song “Jimmy Iovine.” You can hear it here:
You can read the lyrics here:
Although there are references to Jimmy earlier in the track, at the end the lyrics are:
“Now I’m sorry, I’ve had a long day

That’s right, Macklemore
Of course, today has been crazy
Anyway, you ready?
We’ll give you a hundred thousand dollars
After your album comes out we’ll need back that money that you borrowed
So it’s really like a loan
A loan? Come on, no
1-2, 360 degrees, we will reach your goals
You’ll get it done in the merch that you sell out on the road
Along with the third of the money you make when you’re out doing your show
Manager gets 20, booking…
