Perfect explanation of this hyped-up bullshit. The kids in my school are so utterly set on the fact that Macklemore is the best artist there is. It's almost close to worship. The moment I say I don't like his music I get swarmed by, "Wow, you don't even know what good music is," and shit like that. I think a lot of the kids are even just saying they like him as to not be pounced on like me. For sucks sake, a girl even made her yearly on-going project about him. A documentary where a bunch of girls talked about how, "He's just so down to earth and he is cool because he overcame drugs." I don't even think they have heard of Eminem.
That's the end of my rant. Btw Eminem is counted as an actual word on spellcheck and Macklemore isn't, suck it.
