In the conventional music industry, an artist cannot succeed without a major label backing. However, Macklemore proved them all wrong, getting his debut single, "Thrift Shop" to number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 charts on *gasp* talent alone. Macklemore has been an avid supporter of gay rights and same-sex marriage, as evidenced by his song "Same Love," released on his debut collaboration with Ryan Lewis, The Heist, which shot to No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 charts.
Former member of Living Legends, rapper and producer Eligh has been seen active in recent years with The Grouch, and in 2011, collaborated with Amp Live (of Zion I) to release Therapy at 3. The album title was inspired by the duo's unconstrained and unformatted recording process. Viewed as therapy sessions, the format allowed Eligh to write each song free form, spilling whatever was on his mind. With Amp Live's stellar production, Eligh, who usually handles the bulk of his own production, was able to fully concentrate on digging deep to pull out topics that range from the reason why he gets tattoos, his battle with smoking cigarettes, past relationships, and using music as a form of therapy. Amp Live delivers powerful sonic backdrops infusing the boom-bap ethos of independent hip hop with tinges of electronic music, mixed with live instrumentation, all rounded out with an edgy aesthetic.
