Fairfield University students will launch the new semester by getting close and personal with Grammy Award-winning rapper and songwriter, Macklemore.

A native of Seattle, Washington, Macklemore launched onto the music scene as part of the hip hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. They released two albums: The Heist (2012) and This Unruly Mess I’ve Made (2016), and two EPs: The Vs. (2009) and The Vs. Redux (2010).

Macklemore is best known for his collaboration with Lewis on the hit singles "Thrift Shop," "My Oh My," "Can't Hold Us," and "Same Love" (featuring Mary Lambert). "Thrift Shop" reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 2013.
