Despite all their success, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis haven’t their humble beginnings. The Seattle duo took it back to basics and surprised a bus full of
with an impromptu in a promo for the Grammys’ “Music Unleashes” campaign.
With boombox in hand, they boarded the bus and started performing their hit “Can’t Hold Us” for the surprised commuters, who weren’t sure what was happening. Macklemore threw a roll around while he rapped and eventually the whole bus was standing up and clapping along.
On January 26, the duo will perform on a much bigger at the 56th Annual , where they are nominated seven times.
Watch them put a smile on the faces of some unsuspecting New Yorkers.
