Hailing from Seattle, Macklemore is one of a number of intriguing and talented artists coming out of the Northwest recently. His lyrics address a subject matter that covers everything from shoes to love, and everything in between. His storied history is chronicled in many of his songs, and his struggles with drug addiction and race are illustrated beautifully in his well crafted lyrics throughout his six albums.
“Wings,” is a political song addressing the power of style, specifically Nike’s “Jordan” line, in our everyday lives. Whether fly kicks are a detriment to society’s progress or a harmless showcase of ones personal style is up to you to decide, but this song is awesome either way!
