Hip Hop That Hearts Gays

By: Jase Peeples

Chances are you haven’t heard of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, but we’re going to bet you’ll want to hear a lot more of the Hip Hop duo after listening to “Same Love,” the first single from their debut album The Heist dropping on October 9th.

“Same Love” is a welcome LGBT Hip Hop anthem, with all proceeds from sales of the single – released as a digital track on 7/24 and as a limited run 7” vinyl on 7/31 – benefiting the Music for Marriage Equality campaign.

The lyrics from this obviously personal and heartfelt song beautifully bring the topic of equality to the surface and illustrate the battles so many of us fight on a daily basis.

Give the track a listen below and, if it moves you, support these wonderful artists who are supporting our community.
