Grammy-winning rapper Macklemore, assisted by DJ Premier, comes out guns blazing on “HEROES,” a promo single from his 2023 LP, BEN When I grew up, criminals were my heroes.” Now that is quite the assertion, Macklemore! The Grammy-winning rapper brings the heat on “HEROES”, a promo single from his 2023 album, BEN(arrives March 3, 2023). BEN marks Macklemore’s first album in more than five years (GEMINIarrived in September 2017). “HEROES” features incredible, old-school, dusty hip-hop production courtesy of Budo (think boom bap). The beat totally knocks! Of course, it should be noted, the record samples “Tiger Trot” by Leroi Conroy. Given the sample, and Budo’s own skills, the backdrop has plenty of charm, with its horns, keys, scratches.
