Here’s an example of what happens when you enlist a rapper as the spokesperson for your group: He’ll rap your announcement.
I take that back. It’s what happens when you get Macklemore to drum up support for the preservation of tall ship Lady Washington (that pirate ship seen in the video for “Can’t Hold Us”).
You can’t hold the Mack! He can’t help but to rap! The message!
“It smells like salt, and dolphins,” he spits, recounting his experiences aboard the vessel. “I was a little baby pirate. Up there. Doin’ my thing. And you can too.”
Thing is, he’s right. I want to be a little baby pirate and ride matching dolphins with Mack. With Historical Seaport. Dot. O. R. G.
