Same Love

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' song "Same Love” was a mega hit song off of their debut 2012 album The Heist. The song focuses on hot issues in the LGBT community and the right for same-sex couples to marry. The song was nominated for Song of the Year at the Grammy Awards, and won the MTV Video Award for Best Video with a Message. Along with the message of marriage equality, Macklemore also wrote the song out of his own frustration with the hip hop community's perceived position on homosexuality.

Texas rapper Bizzle uses the instrumental hook from Macklemore's 'Same Love' to say that LGBT people are sinful, violent, and just like pedophiles.
