The No. 1 Rap Song In America Is About Thrifting. Well Done, America

Yes, it's one of those historical watershed moments where everything that comes after is fundamentally different from what came before. This week, the number-one song on Billboard's Rap charts is "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz. Indeed, not only is it leading that category, but it's number five on the vaunted Hot 100, right behind heavy hitters like Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Bruno Mars.
Finally, music about and dedicated to Refinery29's favorite leisure activity has come into its own — even if that genre is only one song deep. It's like all these years of work we've put into the site — promoting our love for vintage — have been worth it. Honestly, guys, tears. Oh, and POPPIN' TAGS.
