CD Baby artists Macklemore & Ryan Lewis recently released The Heist, an independent album that debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts. The album has also remained in the iTunes top-sellers list for hip hop since its drop date.

Here’s a short documentary that gives you a glimpse into the work-ethic and DIY spirit that helped Macklemore & Ryan Lewis finally get the attention they deserve.
