The story of Seattle rapper Ben Haggerty (Macklemore) and his producer Ryan Lewis surging to No. 1 from obscurity with indie debut The Heist still raises eyebrows a year later. Artistic control bursts from every track, the MC’s subject matter growing in complexity with relentless yet conversational flow. When their hit “Thrift Shop” boils over into a politically conscious speech about consumerism, it embodies the album’s charm and levity. Brooklyn wordsmith Talib Kweli and Mississippi straight-talker Big K.R.I.T. open.
