What you knowing about wearing a fur fox skin?
It’s kind of a play on words: faux could be pronounced wrongly as fox. Mack pronounces the “AUX” in faux to make it sound better and flow nicely. It’s probably legit fox fur, though, because he bought it at a thrift shop.
A reference to his signature fur coats. Macklemore is known for possessing a large collection of furs from thrift stores. He generally seeks faux fur as he supports the humane treatment of animals. Yet made it a point at a recent concert in Seattle, WA, to express that with most furs found at the thrift store, they are from decades ago, and that the animal has been dead for a long time. He feels that by wearing it onstage or out and about, he gives it an awesome second life.
