Macklemore and Ryan Lewis return home Dec 10-12 at KeyArena.

If you haven't noticed, this Macklemore fellow seems to be pretty popular around Seattle. In a little over a year, he and Ryan Lewis have gone from stars of the local hip-hop scene to chart-topping, Grammy nominated (seven times over), arena-packing superstars. With the duo beginning its run of three sold out KeyArena shows tonight (keep in mind Pearl Jam only sold out one night at KeyArena last weekend), we thought it would be an ideal time to look back on how the two got to this point. This didn't prove too difficult to do considering how frequently we've covered Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

Here's a chronological recap of what we've written about Macklemore and Ryan Lewis in the past year and a half:

  • With the December shows upon us, we thought it only fitting that the KeyArena shows would be among our Top Things to Do in December and Macklemore should be invited to this month's hypothetical Perfect Party.
