If you were visiting Seattle, what would you do first? Maybe visit the Space Needle? Or Pike Place Market? How about the Experience Music Project? Or get a cup of coffee at the first-ever Starbucks?
Well, whatever you would do, four-time Grammy-winning rapper and Northwest native Macklemore would be the BEST Seattle tour guide.
In the below clip from his August 2013 interview on Hip-Hop Nation (recently unearthed in honor of his multiple Grammy wins), Macklemore chats with S.WHiT about the top three hot spots to visit if you’re in Seattle.
“If I went over to Seattle, name three things I have to do when I touch down,” said S. WHiT.
“It’s gonna sound weird, but there’s a fast food restaurant/burger spot called Dick’s Drive-In. It’s the best burger spot, period. Best french fries, period,” said Macklemore.
“[Then] I would say… go down to the water,” he continued. “I’ve traveled all over the world and the country, and in the summertime, there’s not a more beautiful place than Seattle, Washington. If you disagree, come see me, because Seattle is THAT city. It’s got water, it’s got mountains, go down to Pike Place Market.”
And the third thing? “Come over to my crib.”
Well! Don’t mind if we do, Macklemore.
