This guy Ben Haggerty (aka Macklemoreis brilliant. There are very few people in the hip-hop industry that are making music like this. Fair warning that some people won’t like it, but then again, it’s probably not for them. 

"Same Love" discusses the intolerance of the gay community and has a great message. This is just the first song Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have shared from their new album “The Heist”. Can’t wait to see what else is coming out soon.

Fun fact: the single’s release photo is of Macklemore’s uncles.

Ben Huh: Be weird, practice failure, thank the Internet

Ben Huh University of Washington

“The best things in life are non-linear.” So said, Ben Huh, CEO of Cheezburger Network, at a recent event organized by the University of Washington American Marketing Association (UW AMA which I was the VP of at the time) in collaboration with the UW Foster School of Business Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE).

Not surprisingly, his talk, “Making Failure Cheap: Managing Risk to Ensure Success”, was no ordinary lecture-bullet-point-filled PowerPoint. Instead, Ben Huh was an amazing speaker who grabbed everyone’s attention by sharing his real-life stories—the kind of tales we (as students) hope we never have to face.

Together, we all learned how he overcame his challenges in the most unconventional of ways.

His wellspring of inspiration comes not from lost love or his stunning girlfriend, but a painting on his wall, the books on his window shelf, the photographs that are pinned to an old American flag. Ladies & Gentlemen, one of Seattle’s most gifted story-tellers. Bryan John Appleby.

My favorite Rapper to date, Seattle’s Macklemore (@macklemore) is sincere, independent and huge. Macklemore, who just might be the most painfully self-aware and polite artist in hip-hop history, is well on his way to becoming Seattle’s biggest star. This is nothing short of amazing; he truly cares about his music, his fans, and his city. The MC—who plays MusicfestNW this week—has no label and no new album; instead he and producer Ryan Lewis have built a rabid national fan base around a handful of videos and singles that exist only on the Internet. In a genre full of fronting, beef and bravado, Macklemore’s music is shockingly genuine. #SharkFaceGang!
