Macklemore at Ear Candy's Bumbershoot Kickoff Party by Jason Tang

It’s been a banner year for Ben Haggerty, aka Macklemore.

He rocked a rapturous crowd at Capitol Hill Block Party, took the stage at the Paramount Theatre, went on a couple of tours, signed up with a major management firm and reissued his and Ryan Lewis’ Vs. EP with the addition of some killer remixes by some of Seattle’s brightest.

To celebrate his successes in 2010 Mack is throwing a fan appreciation party on Dec. 29 for a few lucky Macklemore fans. The party, which will be a pizza and soda affair, isn’t open to everyone which means you’ll have to be a bit crafty to get an opportunity for Macklemore to show his appreciation for your appreciation.

So how do you get access to this exclusive pizza party? Simple, you just record a video of yourself rapping a Macklemore song. Here are the details from Macklemore’s website:

On December 29th we’re gonna have a Pizza Party for our fans. The people that have made our career what it is. And it’s gonna be awesome. Now, unfortunately as some of you might know, I’m not Oprah. We can’t invite everyone to the party. So, in the spirit of the holiday season, we’re gonna have a contest. We want you to make a video of yourself performing a Macklemore song. The quality of the video doesn’t matter. It can be shot with anything. All you gotta do is: Sing a song (doesn’t have to be the whole song, but at least a verse) film it, upload it to youtube and send it to by December 22nd. The top 15 submissions that we pick will get an invitation for themselves and one friend to hang out with Ryan Lewis and myself, eat some pizza, bump some cuts and just kick it. You people have made this year amazing beyond words, and now we want you to come help us celebrate.
