Happy New Year, everyone. I just discovered hip hop artist Macklemore. I'm not generally a "hip hop" appreciator, but this guy has some of the most direct, personal lyrics about addiction and relapse that I've ever heard. Really powerful stuff. I wanted to share. I've included YouTube links to two songs - Otherside and Starting Over.

Sounded like someone who slipped sharing at a meeting.

Thanks for the links. I'm not into hiphop either, but I liked it.

I had no idea he had that "side" to him, I love the Thrift Shop song/video lol Thanks for sharing.
