Macklemore is an American rapper and songwriter who goes by the stage name Benjamin Hammond Haggerty. He was born in Seattle, Washington, and formed the duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with producer Ryan Lewis. To date, he has released one mixtape, three EPs, and four albums.

In 2013, Macklemore and Lewis’ track “Thrift Shop” debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. The track was branded by Billboard as the first song to top the Hot 100 list without the help of a major record label since 1994; nevertheless, Macklemore pays a minor percentage of sales to employ Warner Bros. Records’ radio promotion department to promote his singles, under an unusual recording deal. “Can’t Hold Us,” their second track, also reached number one on the Hot 100 list, making Macklemore and Lewis the first duo in chart history to have both of their initial singles achieve the top spot.

The Heist, their debut studio album, was released on October 9, 2012, and debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 in the United States. Best New Artist, Best Rap Album (The Heist), Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Performance were among the four Grammy Awards the pair received in the 2014 event (“Thrift Shop”).

This Unruly Mess I’ve Made, Macklemore and Lewis’ second album, was released on February 26, 2016. Macklemore returned to the music business in June 2017 with the release of “Glorious,” a record starring Skylar Grey that marks his first significant hit produced without Lewis since his mainstream debut. Macklemore’s second solo studio album, Gemini, was released in September of that year.

Ben Haggerty was born on June 19, 1983, in Seattle, Washington, to Bill Haggerty and Julie Schott, as the second of their two boys. He grew up in Seattle’s Capitol Hill area with his brother Tim. He is of Irish descent.

When Haggerty was six years old, he was introduced to hip hop through Digital Underground. He listened to “parental advisory” music on the radio when he was younger, according to a YouTube interview. He began writing lyrics when he was 15 years old.

Haggerty listened to “a lot of East Coast underground hip hop” when he first started singing, citing Hieroglyphics, Freestyle Fellowship, Aceyalone, Living Legends, Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, Nas, and Talib Kweli as influences.

He wanted to use music to reach out to a younger generation, so he joined a program called “Gateways for Incarcerated Youth,” which focused on education and cultural identification, and organized music workshops. Haggerty went to Nathan Hale High School and Garfield High School.

For an art project featuring a made-up superhero at Hale, he created the stage name “Professor Macklemore,” and at Garfield, he formed the hip-hop ensemble Elevated Elements with other classmates. Progress, the group’s first album, was released in 2000.

Haggerty enrolled for a year at the College of Santa Fe, later stating in an interview that he enjoyed his time there “In many respects, it was a watershed moment. Santa Fe was where I honed my rapping skills “.. He returned to Seattle after being rejected from the music program. Haggerty went on to The Evergreen State College, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in 2009.
