Macklemore on why a song like “Thrift Shop” has had such crossover success:

"Even though I’m cussing my a-- off in the song, the fact that I’m a white guy, parents feel safe. They let their six-year-olds listen to it. I mean it’s just…it’s different. And would that success have been the same if I would have been a Black dude? I think the answer is no."
