(AllHipHop News) Rapper Macklemore has sparked a bit of controversy with a consume he wore at a surprise appearance.
Seattle’s EMP Museum opened a new exhibit called “Spectacle: The Music Video,” to which Macklemore surprised the audience with his performance.
Some where shocked more about what they saw as a swipe at Jewish stereotype. Most in attendance didn’t seem offended, as there was no visceral response from the crowd.
Most people that felt emotionally about the performance expressed it on social media.
