Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Crafting "The Heist" Follow-Up

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are working on a new album.

Ryan Lewis says that he and Macklemore have resumed working together in the studio. 

“We’re working on a follow up, and we take forever, so I can’t say how long it will take, but we are in the studio daily, trying out new stuff,” Ryan Lewis says in an interview with MTV News. 

Lewis says there is a difference between this upcoming album and the duo's previous effort, The Heist

"A lot of it is different, [because] the context of working and your team, your whole environment and your life has completely changed,” he says. “But then there’s also aspects which are completely the same.

"I think the game is the same, the art the same, the process is the same," he adds. "So for me, it’s really exciting.

"I love deejaying and traveling, but after playing well over 300 shows in a year and a half, it’s nice to be back, trying to make songs."

    Man, with all the close minded twats in the comment section, its no wonder most "artists" stick to talking about sex drugs and money in their music. the first time a person tries to stand for something, he gets shit on by the brainless masses. what a bunch of pathetic assholes. maybe you like living in a world where every radio station plays the same 5 artists that sound the same and have the creativity and diversity in lyrics as a fucking ICP album. to not like the music is one thing, but to criticize one of the few positive voices in mainstream music just shows how moronic you are.

    • wasd

      Macklemore is the first person to stand up for something? He isn't even the first white rapper to stand for something. And we're ignorant for pointing out the demographic and background of that commenter which may provide insight into his shelteredness and ignorance? Yeah okay whatever. You're just too busy with your smartphone and half blinded from huffing copier toner to look into things beyond their surface level.

  • Anonymous

    To speak honestly (because most of the people here are trolling. I am looking forward to hearing this album. A lot has changed since the first album, so I'd like to see whether or not they'll adjust to the fame. It might or might not be good, but I'll at least be interested.

    • wads

      the true semites is the black man so hip hop is in fact patently impossible to be anti-semetic

    • Anonymous

      I don't think this person knew what anti-semetic meant when they said it.

    • Burmy

      Most of "real" hip-hop is anti-semitic...all these conspiracy theories blame the Jewish people for the world's problems. That's why I'm stayin' in my own lane...

    • Caveman King

      you gotta be kidding me. he always backing up blacks, shit, you can't count the times he referenced Trayvon Martin in his songs. He knows he got white privilege, he done apologize for his race so many times. he's no threat to anyone, nobody saying brother ali is racist or some shit.
