I'm tryna raise the bar high/ Who tryna jump and get it? You better off tryna skydive."

Macklemore responded "Every single rapper, when that record dropped, spent that night writing angry battle raps.  I was definitely one of them. I wasn't pissed, but for like 48 hours, I was like, 'Hell no. I've gotta step my game up.' That's what it is. That's the beautiful thing about that record. It has people talking. Everyone knows it. Everyone's competitive."
