Macklemore and Ryan Lewis released ‘Growing Up (Sloane’s Song)’ featuring Ed Sheeran two weeks ago, and have been working on mastering their new material.

The two have been locked away in the Pacific Northwest working on new material. Macklemore recently shared insight on the creative process he shares with Lewis. Haggerty goes over how the two producers push each other to create the best work possible with MTV and TEDx Portland.

Ben Haggerty, aka Macklemore, spoke with TEDx Portland on his view on perfectionism. The conversation and dialogue crosses over multiple professions.

“As a songwriter, you strive for that perfection, but the thing that can kill you with it, is if you let that perfectionism stop you from beginning in the first place.” – Macklemore / Ben Haggerty
