Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz, nuovo fenomeno delle classifiche con Thrift Shop: video e testo

Giovedì la classifica Top Digital Download dei singoli più scaricati in Italia ha visto l’ingresso in top ten di un nome sconosciuto ai più: quello di Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz. Per la verità come avete visto i nomi sono tre, e il pezzo si intitola Thrift Shop.

Ma cos’ha di così particolare un brano che al primo ascolto sembra il classico rap senza spunti particolari? Be’ innanzitutto un’ottima intro, anche se non mantiene ciò che promette, e poi un riff di fiati ripetuto all’infinito che evidentemente incontra i gusti del pubblico. Per il resto è un mistero.

Va però dato credito agli autori di avercela fatto coi semplici mezzi del circuito indipendente, divenendo un vero fenomeno di vendite.

Testo Thrift Shop | Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz

Hey, Macklemore! Can we go thrift shopping?

What, what, what, what…

Bada, badada, badada, bada…

I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome

Nah, Walk up to the club like, “What up, I got a big cock!”
I’m so pumped about some shit from the thrift shop
Ice on the fringe, it’s so damn frosty
That people like, “Damn! That’s a cold ass honkey.”
Rollin’ in, hella deep, headin’ to the mezzanine,
Dressed in all pink, ‘cept my gator shoes, those are green
Draped in a leopard mink, girls standin’ next to me
Probably shoulda washed this, smells like R. Kelly’s sheets
But shit, it was ninety-nine cents! (Bag it)
Coppin’ it, washin’ it, ‘bout to go and get some compliments
Passin’ up on those moccasins someone else’s been walkin’ in
But me and grungy fuckin it man
I am stuntin’ and flossin’ and
Savin’ my money and I’m hella happy that’s a bargain, bitch
I’ma take your grandpa’s style, I’ma take your grandpa’s style,
No for real – ask your grandpa – can I have his hand-me-downs? (Thank you)
Velour jumpsuit and some house slippers
Dookie brown leather jacket that I found diggin’
They had a broken keyboard, I bought a broken keyboard
I bought a skeet blanket, then I bought a kneeboard
Hello, hello, my ace man, my Mello
John Wayne ain’t got nothing on my fringe game, hell no
I could take some Pro Wings, make them cool, sell those
The sneaker heads would be like “Aw, he got the Velcros”

What you know about rockin’ a wolf on your noggin?
What you knowin’ about wearin’ a fur fox skin?
I’m digging, I’m digging, I’m searching right through that luggage
One man’s trash, that’s another man’s come-up
Thank your granddad for donating that plaid button-up shirt
‘Cause right now I’m up in here stuntin’
I’m at the Goodwill, you can find me in the (Uptons)
I’m not, I’m not sick of searchin’ in that section (Uptons)
Your grammy, your aunty, your momma, your mammy
I’ll take those flannel zebra jammies, second-hand, I rock that motherfucker
The built-in onesie with the socks on that motherfucker
I hit the party and they stop in that motherfucker
They be like, “Oh, that Gucci – that’s hella tight.”
I’m like, “Yo – that’s fifty dollars for a T-shirt.”
Limited edition, let’s do some simple addition
Fifty dollars for a T-shirt – that’s just some ignorant bitch (shit)
I call that getting swindled and pimped (shit)
I call that getting tricked by a business
That shirt’s hella dough
And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don’t
Peep game, come take a look through my telescope
Trying to get girls from a brand? Man you hella won’t
Man you hella won’t

From that thrift shop down the road

Is that your grandma’s coat?
