Macklemore

NEW YORK — Macklemore is The Source's man of the year.

The Seattle rapper was among the most-played artists of 2013, partnering with producer Ryan Lewis on hits such as Thrift Shop, Can't Hold Us and Same Love and earning seven Grammy nominations.

Macklemore discusses his hip-hop credentials, the Grammys, the role of race in his pop success and worrying over Kanye's opinion in an interview with the magazine out Tuesday.

Even though he's also nominated for best rap album at the Grammy Awards, Macklemore says Kendrick Lamar should win: "I think it should go to Kendrick. He's family."

Macklemore and Lewis also are up for top honours album and song of the year.

Previous man of the year winners include Rick Ross and 2 Chainz.
