Peep game, come take a look through my telescope

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (Ft. Macklemore & Wanz) – Thrift Shop Lyrics on Rap Genius


If you really wanna ball out then take a look at how Mack finds his clothes. He probably bought the “telescope” at a thrift shop too.

Seeing things through a telescope implies he can see far off; he’s got mad vision

He asks the listening audience to observe the legitimate suaveness of the thrift lifestyle(peep game), and take a look at fashion through his perspective, or telescope.

And, of course, “telescope” shouldn’t be overlooked as a phallic symbol, whereby this line becomes a double-entendre pickup line — something continued in the next lines.

By “peep game”, Macklemore is also asking the listener to look at shopping through his “(my) telescope”, or perspective. A telescope allows someone to see something they normally wouldn’t see with the naked eye.
