Seattle duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are getting the last laugh after initially being banned from appearing a California high school.

According to reports, student outcries and a petition to have the hip-hop studs come through convinced Aliso Niguel High School officials to reverse its decision.

After a successful student protest, Aliso Niguel High School officials said Tuesday they will not block hip hop stars Macklemore and Ryan Lewis from appearing on campus. Just before the lunch bell, principal Deni Christensen announced that a compromise had been reached with student leaders, re-confirming Macklemore’s Dec. 17 appearance. Students will need a permission slip signed by a parent to participate in the after-school interview session. (OC Register)

Initial concerns about Macklemore’s music content sparked the ban.

Last week, students found out they had won an onlinecontest sponsored by a textbook sales website, The prize includes an appearance by Macklemore and Lewis on campus along with a $10,000 grant for the school’s Fine Arts department.
But some parents raised concerns about the content in the rappers’ lyrics that make reference to drug use. Consequently, school administrators nixed the artists’ visit and turned down the money. (CBS Local)

The shocking situation even made Mack react to the news on social media.
