Many in my past and many that came before me
Macklemore gives a nod to a few distinct demographics: first, the people in his own life who have contributed to his own wellbeing and his own existence. Second, the fellow seekers on his or any spiritual quest. And finally, the hip-hop greats who paved the way for him to be where he is today. This all plays into his earlier line about gratitude. He’s grateful to be standing on the shoulders of giants.
