Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Cover Complex Magazine

I’m not sure why anyone would grab this issue on the magazine rack over the Khloé Kardashian cover, but Macklemore and Ryan Lewis also appear on front page of Complex’s August/September installment.

Read an excerpt from their cover story below or check the full thing out here.

I held it together for a while, but, eventually, I stopped going to my 12-step meetings. I was burnt out, I was super-stressed. We weren’t sleeping—doing a show every day, zigzagging all over the country. In terms of the media I was getting put into a box that I never saw for myself. The pressure and the fame—everything. All the clichés, man—like not being able to walk around, having no privacy, and from this TV appearance to this TV appearance, and the criticism, and the lack of connection, and the lack of meetings—all of that put into one pie was just…I just wanted to escape.
