Macklemore

Thrift Flying

That's a Bargain Bitch!

EXCLUSIVE

0308_mackelmore_southwest_tmz_article"Thrift Shop" rapper Macklemore is still looking for a come-up ... because Friday morning he caught a flight on America's favorite bargain airline Southwest ... and TMZ has the pic.

Mack -- real name Ben Haggerty -- boarded the discount flight from Burbank to Las Vegas stuntin' in dark shades, a black jacket, and a hoodie ... and he looked incredible.

We're not judging, but it's always pretty incredible to see famous people on Southwest ... guy really lives up to his reputation.

Now THAT'S a cold ass honkey.

Sounds like this might be one rapper the IRS won't be chasing when their career is over.

Who? I guess he could sit next to someone like me and not worry about being harassed, ha. And Kevin Smith also flew SW via Burbank. Basically, it's just someone who wants to use Burbank instead of LAX. And it's only a 45 min flight.
