Macklemore rolls up in his signature old black Cadillac, sporting black Ray-Bans and big boots.
He‚Äôs late. ‚ÄúGoogle took us on a bit of a joy ride this morning,‚ÄĚ explains the rapper (real name: Ben Haggerty).
But fortunately, Seattle‚Äôs beloved star hasn‚Äôt left concert-goers in a lurch. He‚Äôs not here to perform. He‚Äôs come to this heavily industrial and polluted part of South Seattle to go for a paddle on the river he‚Äôs made his cause celebre: the Duwamish.
‚ÄúIndustry has come in here and made this water crazy levels of toxicity,‚ÄĚ Macklemore said, before dragging his kayak down the rocky beach. ‚ÄúAnd it‚Äôs pushed away, it‚Äôs not talked about much and I wanted to get involved in any way that I could.‚ÄĚ
