Scène de la Plaine • 00h00- 01h15
Ben William Haggerty got into rap during his high school years through Wu Tang Clan and Nas. In 2000 he started out under the name Professor Macklemore but shortened it for his first auto-produced album, The Language of My World. His collaboration with producer and DJ Ryan Lewis was a perfect match. Together they wrote Thrift Shop - a global hit. Macklemore released Gemini as his first solo album in 12 years and the first without Lewis since they met : a new chapter for the American rapper. Going against the flow of rap clichés, Macklemore shared to the whole world how he celebrated his grandma’s 100th birthday in his track Glorious featuring Skylar Grey. He’s definitely a singular artist.
