Macklemore net worth: Macklemore is an American rap artist and musician who has a net worth of $18 million dollars. Born in Seattle, Washington, Macklemore, also known as Ben Haggerty, became interested in hip-hop when he was in elementary school. He began writing his own raps when he was in middle school, and released his first EP when he was seventeen years old. Five years later, he self-released his first full-length album, and then released a mixtape in 2009. Issues related to substance abuse plagued him up until 2009, but he got himself back on track. At some point along the way, Macklemore met a fellow Seattle artist named Ryan Lewis. At first Lewis was hired to shoot promo photos for Macklemore but pretty soon the duo were collaborating musically. After years of pounding the pavement trying to get a major record deal, they went ahead and independently released their first full-length studio album, "The Heist" in October 2012. The album has been massively successful, and debuted at #1 on the iTunes charts and at #2 on the Billboard charts. As of 2014, Macklemore and Lewis are still unsigned, and have been featured in multiple music magazines and on television. The Heist has gone one to be an international smash hit and was even nominated for a Grammy for album of the year. Their song "Same Love" was also nominated for Song of the Year.
