* Rapper Benjamin Hammond Haggerty goes by the stage name Macklemore.

* He collaborated with producer Ryan Lewis to release "Thrift Shop." The single reached No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 2013. It was the first since 1994 to top the Hot 100 chart without the benefit of a major record label behind it.

* Their second single," Can't Hold Us," also reached No. 1 on that chart, making them the first duo in the chart's history to have their first two singles top the chart.

* The duo won four Grammy Awards in 2014: Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for "Thrift Shop."

* Macklemore was honored this month with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award from MusiCares, in recognition of his support of MusiCares and his commitment to helping others in the process of addiction recovery.
