DIY Artist Macklemore Breaks Glass Ceiling – Single Goes Platinum

In news that couldn’t make us happier, DIY hip hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have shown that even in the world of pop, the sky is now the limit for what you can do as a DIY musician. Their single “Thrift Shop” has now been certified platinum after a sustained push for the single since way back in August. The group self-released their latest without any label backing, just a distribution partnership with ADA. Congratulations on another limit lifted for how far you can do when doing it yourself.
