Macklmore's success is an inspiration to indie musicians everywhere. His path to success can be a model for many, but its not an easy one. It doesn't just take hard work to get noticed - it takes good work... and a lot of it.
It takes time, commitment, confidence, and perserverence - all at the highest degree - but perhaps the most important thing we learn along the way is that anything truly is possible. Be different. Follow your dreams. Surround yourself with people who believe in your ability to achieve them. Never give up. And take these lessons from Macklemore brought to you by Dave Kusek on MusicThinkTank.com
"Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s “Same Love,” a song with a more than an obvious nod towards the gay community, is not commonplace in hip hop. By pushing this issue and standing behind a controversial topic, the duo probably got a lot of haters. But you know what, they also got a lot of people behind them. They stood out. They were different. Know who you are, know what you believe in, and say something meaningful with your art."
