This is dedication

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (Ft. Macklemore) – Ten Thousand Hours Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Macklemore is a huge fan of Lil Wayne and the album “Dedication”.

Dedication is one of Lil Wayne’s most lyrical and successful albums. So he’s trying to say he’s as good as Dedication.

Rationalize the shit that I’d try after I listen to “Dedication”

Despite how Lil' Wayne lives
It’s not conducive to being creative
And I know cause he’s my favorite
And I know cause I was off that same mix
Macklemore — Otherside

Maclemore strikes listeners with ‘The Heist’
