Macklemore: A Hip-Hop Self-Starter to Become a Household Name

Ben Haggerty, aka Macklemore, was raised as a self-starter, according to Andrew Matson’s article in The Seattle Times.

That phrase really caught my eye, as you know I’m “into” self-starters! His traititude is creativity–a trait highly valued in his home. This young man has been on a crusade to make his music not only accessible to the public but also beautiful in its composition. He has experimented with different sounds and with different musicians. His creative drive propels him forward. I’m not a hip-hop fan but I must tell you, you need to check him out.
