Hey, Macklemore! Can we go thrift shopping?

What, what, what, what... [x7]

Bada, badada, badada, bada... [x9]

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I - I - I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is...

    It Means That He Is Buying His Clothes For $20 Or Less, When Other Rappers, Like Eminem, Bought Suits For Like $1,000. Then He Gets It Almost New For $20. Yay!!

    Hookers don't care where you get your clothes as long as you got more $$$ for them. It's all good.

    This song is about going into a thrift shop and buying unwanted clothes, blankets, broken keyboards, sports equipment, etc, from a thrift shop.

    It can be about "one man's trash is another man's pleasure", or just that you don't need to wear a flashy outfit when you can buy a cheap one for 20 dollars at a thrift shop.

    its about how you can look good wearing what you want, you don't need a bunch of money and you dont have to wear gucci or prada or the pinkys up brands too look good, he can rock a $20 outfit while other rappers wear 50000000 dollar clothes
