Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Headline MLS All Star Game Week
The socially conscious hip hop artists have already been given the BET Award for Best Group and their chart topping hit “Thrift Shop” won the Billboard Music Award for Rap Song of the Year.
Macklemore has been an outspoken supporter of the LGBT community. The Seattle native recorded his song “Same Love” during the campaign for Washington state’s Referendum 74, that allowed same sex marriage after it was passed last November. “Same Love” was also featured in YouTube’s Pride Month video along with a woman proposing marriage to her partner at a Macklemore show.
Macklemore also is the first recording artist to make a video for the You Can Play Project supporting LGBT athletes, and in his video, performers.
If you’re not in Kansas City, the event will also be streamed at MLSSoccer.com.
Here’s the full video for their single “Same Love,” featuring Macklemore’s uncle and partner.
And here’s how it was used in YouTube’s official Pride Month video, which featured Robbie Rogers’ debut for the LA Galaxy.
I think it’s safe to say that this is f*&$ing awesome.
