Student Pick:Thrift Shop” by Mackelmore

Stephen Sanchez (’13) did not have to stop and think when he was asked what his music pick was. He immediately pulled up the song “Thrift Shop” by the rap artists Mackelmore on his phone. Stephen says he and most people like Mackelmore because he is “funny and awesome.”

Thrift Shop is a fun romp about having a silly time buying clothes and used gear from second-hand stores. It features a goofy saxophone, a silly beat, and, best of all, a great message: that buying things at thrift stores is cheaper and more fun than buying things new. Mackelmore is a 29 year old rapper out of Seattle, Washington who, according to Sanchez, is not a one trick pony. Sanchez suggests people check out full album, The Heist, for a good time.

It is considered by many to be one of the most iconic movies of the 80’s,  along with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Kate recommends that “every high school senior should see it before they graduate.”
