Macklemore

Despite building a bit of a fanbase in Seattle and online in his early- and mid-20s, Macklemore and his career slowed down as he became addicted to lean. After returning with an EP and some touring, he dropped his debut album, The Heist, (along with producer Ryan Lewis) at the age of 30.
