A Look Inside The Incredible D.I.Y. Hustle Of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis [VIDEO]
I always check Hypebot to see what's going on in within
the music industry landscape and I know it's helped a lot of DIY musicians over
the years. As a documentary filmmaker I'm always looking for who to
cover, who is next, and most importantly who is making amazing music that has a
story worth telling. I've known Macklemore for a few years now and when I first
Versus EP" him and Ryan Lewis put out a years ago I became an instant
We linked up, shot some interview footage (unreleased), and I have been
closely following their career ever since. They have an incredible DIY hustle, and define what it
means to be an artist in my eyes. They don't compromise what they create
because they create everything.
The story in the film really showcases how these guys
have done so much with so little and my Jabari
Presents series is all about inspiring youth culture to chase their dreams.
I want people to feel inspired from this short film but I also want people to
realize how much Macklemore and Ryan care about their music. They put their everything
into every aspect of their musical experience from songs, to merchandise, album
art, videos, and any little thing in between.
Their album "The Heist"
is amazing and this is just the beginning for these two. Check their
music out at Macklemore.com and subscribe
