Macklemore and Ryan Lewis Pop Some Tags at Paid Dues 2013

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis cut right to the chase, opening up their Paid Dues 2013 set with their breakthrough hit “Thrift Shop.”

“That song went to No. 1 on the strength of the people; that is independent hip-hop just like this festival that Murs started independently,” the Seattle MC told the crowd, before a surprise guest appearance from Talib Kweli.
