Macklemore on "Wings" use by NBA All-Star Game

The other day I posted the video of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performing Wings for the NBA All-Star game intro. I gave props but also noted the interesting editing of the lyrics. Macklemore has taken to his blog to address some accusations of "selling out." Here's what he had to say:

"Over the past couple days, I’ve read numerous tweets and a couple articles about the use of our song “Wings” as the intro for the 2013 NBA All Star Game.  While most people were congratulatory over the television appearance, it seemed like there were a fair amount of people that were quick to throw out the good, old-fashioned “sellout” statement.  The bigger our profile gets, the more I’m getting use to the phrase and the “purists” who toss it around so liberally.  But I figured I should probably break it down from my perspective to let you know where I stand."
