Macklemore is continuing his efforts to shed light on the nation's opioid addiction crisis by sharing a short-form documentary video showcasing his first public performance of his song "Drug Dealer," which he calls his most personal song yet. The video is premiering now exclusively with Billboard.
Earlier this month, the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis rapper released the Prescription for Change documentary with MTV that collaborated with President Barack Obama to spotlight the drug addiction that grips America. He also shared "Drug Dealer," with an accompanying video that was released Tuesday, chronicling his own fight with substance abuse and critiquing the system in which millions are becoming addicted to prescription drugs. And last Friday, the Seattle MC performed that song live for the first time at the Air Canada Centre for Toronto's WE Day celebration, an event encouraging global change around the world.
