Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have been making headlines for debuting at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 charts with their first full-length album, The Heist. Their already strong fan base continues to snowball as the MC + producer duo keeps marking off more firsts for themselves. Just last night, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (and Wanz and a little help from ?uestlove on the drums) made their television performance debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with their smash hit "Thrift Shop."
Macklemore shows off his custom Vans slip-ons on The DUB Magazine Project.
Ever since we first saw Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's "Thrift Shop" music video, we've been all over the powerhouse duo's every move with multiple Google alerts, dedicated Twitter lists, and a near-complete monopoly over our headphones (if ONLY they had a Christmas album!!!!) This Sunday, MTV2's The DUB Magazine Project featured the MC + DJ team, taking them to get custom Vans and — you guessed it — go thrifting!

Listen. We know Macklemore & Ryan Lewis uploaded the "Thrift Shop" music video to Ryan's Youtube channel just about three months ago. And that they have a new video for their new single "Same Love." We know that The Shark Face Gang rolls deep and bought up enough tickets to The Heist World Tour to sell out multiple huge domestic AND international city venues. And that the dudes are getting this all done without being signed to a major record label. Yet. If your playcount for this new album is creeping toward the triple digits, we feel you, and sure, this all may be old news. But for those of you unconverted Macklemore & Ryan Lewis fans out there, get ready for what is quite possibly more awesome (used as a noun) than you were prepared to digest this Thursday morning. We're breaking down their "Thrift Shop" music video (which is about, duh, THRIFTING)!
