Hip-hop artist makes waves with song attacking homophobia
Macklemore is a hip-hop artist made famous for challenging the norms. His biggest hit right now is about the second-hand shops where he buys clothes. But he's also become famous for another song he released recently, Same Love, which promotes acceptance of same-sex marriage.

Macklemore is an unlikely rapper: hes from the Pacific Northwest, hes white, hes proud of wearing secondhand clothes. And now hes famous for his support of gay marriage.

Macklemores Same Love came out of his frustration with hip-hops misogyny and homophobia.
