Macklemore, the rapper and songwriter from Seattle, recently released a teaser for an upcoming album, The Unruly Mess I’ve Made.
First, I love the title. The naming out loud of something that is an unspoken truth.
Second, I love this line, “If you aren’t scared of what you’ve created, you aren’t done yet.”
I also love it that Macklemore has remained an independent performer, not signing recording contracts with major studios, to preserve his freedom to create as inspired.
There’s a little something in this for all of us. Don’t have to like rap. Just hear or read the narrative and notice the part of any of us that wants and needs to create.
