Macklemore- Kevin (ft Leon Bridges)

Last night at the AMAs, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis debuted a new song about Mack’s friend Kevin, who died from an overdose in 2014. The song is very emotional as Macklemore spits about his friend Kevin and the prescription pill problem this nation faces. You can feel the pain in his voice in his verses. This is straight from the heart, let it all out, raw music. Macklemore gets a lot of hate, but he does make good music about topics that not many other rappers touch. Macklemore is a recovering addict himself, so he is no stranger to the subject matter. So far, his three singles have been completely different and all great. This makes me excited for the new album.

Below is a link to listen to the CDQ version.
