Money, stay on my craft and stick around for those pounds
But, I do that to pass the torch and put on for my town

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (Ft. Ray Dalton) – Can't Hold Us Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Mack’s putting on for his home has included advocacy for marriage equality in Washington state and even inspiring area Olympic speed skaters

Some may argue that the “torch” Macklemore has received and is passing on, though, is the decades-long tradition of regional acts selling out in order to gain mainstream success
