Rapper Macklemore Not Happy With Oklahoma City Thunder Using His Song to Pump Up Crowd


Macklemore Sports SpotlightSeattle fans are still a bit touchy about the whole Supersonics-to-Oklahoma City subject.

Rapper Macklemore has blown up on the radio in the last few months with songs like “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us” on heavy rotation. When songs become popular like that, they tend to be everywhere, from bars to sporting events.

But the Seattle native has taken exception to his song “Can’t Hold Us” being played by the Oklahoma City Thunder at home games. It seems that the team has taken a liking to the song during the playoffs and has been playing it to get the crowd pumped up.

Macklemore, who is a big Seattle sports fan, took to Twitter to voice his displeasure over the unauthorized usage. Check it out in the tweets below.
