Old school like Olde English in that brown paper bag
Macklemore compares his classic tyres to the classic Olde English 800, commonly known as Olde E, Old Gold, OE and 8-Ball clad in the traditional paper bag.
OE is a Malt Liquor which has been popular amongst rappers since the ‘80’s and has been referenced in their lyrics over and over.
Mac was influenced at a young age by the East Coast underground scene and names typically associated old school styles (Nas, Talib Kweli, Wu-Tang..) and if you’ve listened to a few of his songs you’ll be well informed of his love for all things Classic and Vintage.
