“I’m gonna paint a better world until the cans are empty,” spits Macklemore on “Buckshot,” the latest release from his forthcoming album with Ryan Lewis, This Unruly Mess I’ve Made.
Premiering on Hot 97, the Seattle rapper’s new cut joins the LP’s previously released collaborative cuts including “Downtown,” “Growing Up,” “Kevin” and “White Privilege II.” “Buckshot” also features hip-hop veterans DJ Premier and KRS-One.
“Buckshot” recalls Macklemore’s early days working at Subway by day, writing rhymes on break and tagging buildings with graffiti by night.
This Unruly Mess I’ve Made carries a star-studded roster of features from Chance the Rapper to Idris Elba. The follow-up to 2012’s Grammy-winning LP The Heist lands Feb. 26.
