Macklemore’s Special Delivery: A KAWS Moonman

Rapper proudly shows off his VMA hardware, which he's dubbed 'lil homie.'

Bills, bills, catalogs, pizza coupons. Oh, a KAWS moonman! That’s how we imagine things went on Wednesday when Macklemore was opening his mail and unwrapped one of his one-of-a-kind MTV Video Music Awards trophies.

“Check out one of the lil homies that came in the mail today,” he said. “Never thought I’d own one of these. Amazing. #moonman #kaws #mtv.”

Like Taylor Swift, who also totally geeked out about getting her KAWS-designed homie in the mail Wednesday, Macklemore couldn’t wait to show off the hardware. But, unlike Swiftie, as far as we know he didn’t immediately break the thing.

Mack and Lewis won VMAs for Best Hip-Hop Video for their globe-trotting “Can’t Hold Us” clip and Best Video with a Message for “Same Love.”
