Hot 97's Ebro and Peter Rosenberg sat down with Macklemore for an informative hour plus interview that covers all kinds of bases. The 'Thrift Shop' emcee hasn't done media since the 2014 Grammys, when he won Best Rap Album, and all the controversy began.

Recently, we've seen Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea's feud spin out of control, sparking a debate about race in Hip Hop. Macklemore approaches the often precarious position of being a white rapper in a more nuanced way than Azalea is able to, making for a very interesting conversation.

This is an interview to really watch and absorb.
