Macklemore is an American rapper and composer. A native of Seattle, Washington, he formed the duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with producer Ryan Lewis. He has released one mixtape, three EPs, and four full-length albums.
In 2013, Macklemore and Lewis’s hit “Thrift Shop” peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States.
According to Billboard, the track is the first since 1994 to reach the top of the Hot 100 list without a major record label; nonetheless, Macklemore pays a minimal percentage of sales to employ Warner Bros. Records’ radio marketing department to promote his records. His real name is Benjamin Hammond Haggerty.

He first chose Professor Macklemore’s moniker, not for his music but a school art project. He must have loved this fictitious moniker since he adopted it as his stage name when he started his career.
