While touring the world in support of their hit album The Heist, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have found themselves in the company of iconic stars like Justin Timberlake, whom Macklemore just happened to enjoy a very special frozen yogurt date with recently.
Last month, Macklemore shared a photo of himself and Justin Timberlake on Instagram with the caption, “Me & Justin getting Froyo in London. Crunch Berries and Gummi Bears. This guy goes in.” The Seattle rapper told MTV News that he wasn’t kidding about the dessert date or about Justin’s sweet tooth, going on to detail what they each ordered when they hung out.
“I just got low-fat, low-carb fro-yo with no topping, but Justin got heavy whipping cream on top of his fro-yo with gummy bears, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, the worms, M&M’s and peanut butter cups,” he joked.
Clearly there was no competition for who ended up with the better treat but Macklemore wasn’t sweating it. “His tasted better. I was definitely in fighting shape,” he added.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will go head-to-head with Justin Timberlake at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, with six nominations each. The duo is up for Video of the Year with “Thrift Shop” and Best Hip Hop Video for “Can’t Hold Us.”
During a recent appearance on “RapFix Live,” Black Hippy rapper Schoolboy Q weighed in on his boy Kendrick Lamar squaring off against Macklemore for Best Hip Hop Video with “Swimming Pools,” and actually gave his vote to The Heist rapper.
“Of course I’m rooting for Kendrick, but Macklemore probably should win,” Q said. “I’m pretty sure Kendrick believes that too. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will face off with Justin Timberlake in the Video of the Year category, where “Thrift Shop” will be pitted against “Mirrors.”
