Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" Goes Platinum

Posted by on Thu, Jan 3, 2013 at 10:35 AM

43 million views on YouTube and now, a platinum plaque for Mack & Ryan's diggin' anthem.

This is the second platinum Seattle rap single in history, after "Baby Got Back". Kind of a big deal. Congratulations to Mack, Ryan and the whole team. Congrats to the haters, also, because they will now be forever nourished.

OK you're rich now. Stop poaching from the poor people store, dickhead.

not to be the jerk that gets into a Serious Conversation about something pretty banal, but @1, thrifting is definitely not just for the poor. there is a difference between appropriating poverty (ie, trust fund crust punks!) and just shopping at the thrift store. buying second hand creates less waste and allows you to buy all sorts of weird/great stuff instead of what is just being sold to you.

in short, fuckkkkkkk offffffffffff.

Wow, some commenters can really navel gaze about anything. It's a fun song and a fun video. And my mind is blown just trying to think of what R. Kelly's sheets might smell like!

Just because they went platinum doesn't mean they made a lot of money!

@10, since they are independent, they probably are making a lot of money.
