Opinion was divided over Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ last offering, Otherside, a joint dedicated to cutting down the “drugs make you more creative” myth, but I’d be surprised if the Booth responds to their latest song Crew Cuts with the same kind of love ‘em or hate ‘em comments. A track built around a guitar riff sample and Run DMC-esque percussion - you can thank producer Ryan Lewis for that - Crew Cuts lyrically features Macklemore and his partner in rhyme Xperience waxing nostalgic about a time when British Knights were the ish, people still played tapes and, of course, fades and crew cuts were the hairstyles of choice. It may not be revolutionary hip-hop, but with a highly entertaining theme (for 80’s babies at least), quality production and solid rhymes, it’s hard not to at least enjoy Crew Cuts. For more hair-raising hip-hop (I apologize, that was a terrible pun) be sure to check out Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ VS. EP, available now.
