A few weeks after Wu-Tang Clan’s Method Man called out West Coast rapper Macklemore, Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt has taken aim at his “Can’t Hold Us” track.
Sweatshirt hopped onto his Twitter page to publicly question the thumping anthem.
“also ahahah who the f*ck is this rapping very fast on 90’s trance piano beat with this ‘ceilings cant hold us’ john legend hook?,” Earl tweeted May 26th.

“RT @earlxsweat: also who the f*ck is this rapping very fast on 90’s trance piano beat w/ this ‘ceilings cant hold us’ john legend hook?
Over the weekend, the rapper and sidekick Ryan Lewis performed the infectious “Can’t Hold Us” track overseas.
BBC Radio 1 held its annual Big Weekend festival over the weekend. We were not able to guy, but thanks to a series of vidos popping up online this morning we are able to partake in the highlights of the event. One performance was so good it simply needed to be shared, and here we are to deliver it to you. It is impossible for anyone who cares about pop music to have made it to this date, May 26, without recognizing the immense talent of Macklemore and musical cohort Ryan Lewis. Their hit “Thrift Shop” has been essentially inescapable in recent weeks, and slowly but surely their follow-up, “Can’t Hold Us,” is starting to have a similar presence in the mainstream. The duo performed their new hit for the hungry crowds overseas this weekend, and the performance is still just as epic when viewed through a computer screen. (Under the Gun Review)
Last month, Method Man called out Mack for allegedly jacking his signature concert move.
“The reason why I brought the music down — I was watching MTV not too long ago and there was a rapper on stage. This motherf*cker had a lot of energy. I was really, really enjoying his performance,” Mef told the crowd. “I think his name was Macklemore. Don’t get me wrong, that motherf*cker can rhyme. But as I’m watching his performance, I see this motherf*cker do something that just pissed me off. He tried to actually walk on top of the crowd’s hands. I started that sh*t! That’s my sh*t! … Don’t get me wrong. When Macklemore comes to your city, y’all show him all the love that y’all showed Red and Mef. But if that motherf*cker tries to do my walk on the crowd thing, I want Denver, Colorado to drop his a** like a bad habit.” (WeedMaps.TV)
