This is No. 21 in our Top 30 Video Countdown, in which we highlight Rhapsody's best exclusive videos of all time.
Recorded at the 2011 Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco, here's our chat with young hip-hop upstarts Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, who discuss the surprising vibrancy of the Pacific Northwest rap scene, the advantages of being a hip-hop head (or not), how they draw inspiration from everything from Beirut to Watch the Throne, the benefits of being a political rapper (or not), and more. Enjoy.
