Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt recently laughed mockingly at “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. In a tweet, he described the song and asked who the rapper was. When a fan pointed out that the rapper was Macklemore, Earl complimented his financial status.

Macklemore seemed to find the tweet funny. He posted his own retweet of the message, laughing about the comment.
“Can’t Hold Us” was released in 2011 and was included in last year’s The Heist by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. The song, which has been certified platinum, does not feature John Legend. The hook on the track was recorded by Ray Dalton. “Can’t Hold Us” can be viewed and heard below.
