'Wednesday Morning' Produced by Joshua "Budo" Karp
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis recently released ‘Wednesday Morning’ on YouTube. This marks the second unreleased track pairing with ‘Drug Dealer’ that was released in late October.
The Seattle hiphop duo make serious lyrical progress with these two songs, but the beat structure lacks commercial appeal to get the message out to a mass audience. One of the elements that I appreciate about Macklemore’s lyrics is his ability to cover complex and simplex topics.
‘Wednesday Morning’ takes the world back to Wednesday, November 9, 2016.
For those that may have forgot what happened on that morning; Donald Trump was announced to be the next president of the United States. Since I was covering the election, I was wide awake in the middle of the night when it was first declared.
At first I was shocked and almost insecure about the future of the country. After I started to see how Trump changed during the election process, I already saw him changing his attitude. When I started looking at the results of the election, I started to frame it in a four year cycle. If Trump wants to get re-elected, he is going to have to change a lot to win over voters for a second time. If he doesn’t deliver is making America great again in 2-3 years, be ready for the next president election of 2020 to knock him right out of office.
A lot of the decisions that Trump will make during his time in office, can and will be overturned following his presidency.
Overall, I appreciate Macklemore creating a political track, but I wish he would drop a track covering the Dakota Pipeline, Flint’s water, and renewable energy. If there is one group that can make solar energy a hot topic, its Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
