Macklemore

Rocks Louis Bag

We Call That Getting Tricked By a Business

1/3/2014 12:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0102-mackelmore-splash
Macklemore turned his back on the thrift shop thing yesterday  -- rocking what looks like a ridiculously expensive Louis Vuitton bag at JFK.

Ironic, Mack rails against designers in his famous song, rapping about how designer labels are a massive waste of money -- "Limited edition, let's do some simple addition / Fifty dollars for a T-shirt - that's just some ignorant bitch (sh*t) / I call that getting swindled and pimped (sh*t) / I call that getting tricked by a business."

We can't verify from the picture that the bag is authentic, but we did some Googling and it looks exactly like Louis' Keepall Bandouliere bag, which retails for $1,770.

So we gotta ask ...

I've actually found authentic Louis Vuitton bags/purses, Michael Kors hand bags, and Gucci sunglasses in great condition at a thrift shops. Also his songs don't say don't buy brand name items, it says don't waste ridiculous amounts of money on them when you can get them cheaper at a thrift shop or second hand. So long as he didn't actually spend the money on the stuff himself (or at full price) then it's not really hypocritical. Though he probably bought it himself at full price.

Maybe it's a knock off but who cares if I had Louie mine after only having thrift shop money I'd buy 1.

Spending a grand on a designer bag, when you're not wealthy, is ridiculous. When you have lots of money, it becomes not that big of a deal. The dude's not being hypocritical, it's just the way it is. It'd be more hypocritical to have lots of $ and pretend you don't.

Does it really matter? Eminem sings about killing hoes and ****ing juggalos, you don't call him a hypocrite for not doing it.

TMZ didnt even think about it possibly being a bootleg bag. I can get that same bag for ten bucks at the flea market in Dallas. You cant tell the difference.
