- Do you know who I am?
- No.
- Are you?

- Wow-ow.

- I am a musician.
- Have you ever done a stage dive?
- I've done many stage dives.
- How many hours a week do you work?
- Who's to say how much
work really tour is?

You're really only on stage for like,
an hour and a half a night.
- And plus you're already just
restating the songs that you already made.
- Right, is that even
work in the first place?

Question mark. We don't know.
- Is there like song that you
get like tired of singing?

- Yes, it's a song called Thrift Shop.
- What school do you guys go to?
- What's your favorite song?
- Uh, McCleur.
I got to McCleur and he goes to Hamilton.
- You guys go to different schools.
- Yeah.
- Man back in the day,
McCleur and Hamilton use
to be kinda bad schools.

- Oh, McCleur sucks.
- Does it?
- Yes.
- That's where I probably
started to do drugs,

was with McCleur kids man.
Like actually for real.
I went to a McCleur
party, in seventh grade,

and I think that was it.
- Why do you always use your
hands when you talk, like well?

You do it.
- No I'm showing you,
this is like exaggerated,

but like yeah, I rap.
- Have you been recognized?
- I got recognized on the way over here.
I was in Barnes and Nobel,
someone stops me and says

"Has anyone ever told you, that you look
a lot like Macklemore?"
So, normally I just say
no, but today I said yes.

And she said, "I mean
obviously you're not him."

And in my mind I'm like,
does she think I look older?

I was thinking the other day that should
keep a wig in my glove
compartment of my car.

I'm thinking like a brown kinda shag,
maybe a weird hat, some sunglasses,
I don't know.
- When you wrote the song White Privilege,
did you actually mean
what you were saying?

- Yeah, absolutely.
The first version of White Privilege
I wrote when I was in college.
It was 2005, so thirteen.
- That was three years before I was born.
- Yeah, so it was thirteen years ago.
Long time ago, and I was
observing a change in culture.

It was an observation.
It was questioning what's
my place in this culture,

and processing it through a song.
- One of my favorite songs
is the Immigrant Song.

- Who sings that?
- Led Zeppelin.
- Mmm.
- How do you not know that?
- Cause I listen to rap dude.
- Since you're a rapper,
like you feel like

there's booze around you a lot, or?
- Yeah, everywhere I go there's
just a bottle Ciroc vodka.

No, I'm just kidding.
- Okay good.
- There is definitely a lot of alcohol
in the music industry in general,
but it's been a really long time
since I've had a drink of alcohol.
- That's pretty good.
- Yeah.
I think that what separates
me from a normal person,

is that when I put a drink
or a drug into my body,

it's like I have an
allergic reaction to it,

and I can't get enough of it.
So for me, any drug is a bad drug for me.
- Where you on drugs once?
- I was.
- Mmm.
- Oof, yeah. It's a long road back.
- Yeah.
- Well Tommy, you wouldn't know.
- Well yeah I wouldn't know,
but I read all the like
pamphlets they give us in school.

Don't do drugs kids, which
is probably accurate.

- And you've listened.
- Yeah.
- Good.
- Can you still write
music when you take drugs?

- Music that's not very good, yes.
- What's the most recent
time you've had a relapse?

- Two years ago, it was bad, this is bad.
- Okay.
- No it's fine, we can go there.
- No, no, no, if you don't want to.
- No it's fine.
There was a photo shoot,
for People Magazine.

I was told that we were
going to be a like,

50 sexiest people.
- Nice.
- It turns out, it was like 50
sexiest like animal hunters.

- You hunt, do you hunt?
- Which is like a big difference.
- Yeah.
- Um, yeah.
- Yeah, like great.
So I was very high, I think
I passed out at some point.

- Oh geez.
- It was all bad.
Anyway, that was the last time.
- What would you say your
favorite drink is now?

- You know what I really enjoy,
is a fine chilled bottle of Martinelli's.
- That's delicious, the apple cider?
- Yeah man.
- Pretty good.

- Do you still have the
same passion for music

from when you started?
- I'm having to think about it,
so I would say probably not.

I don't know, it's a tough question.
I feel like I'm kind of in a
transition point in my life,

I wanna be a good dad.
- Do you have kids?
- I do.
- How many?
- Two kids.
You guys wanna see a
picture of my daughter?

- Okay.
- That's my new baby.
- Do you think you're a good
role model to your fans?

- It depends on the song.
What I try to embody with
my music is being myself.

There's good versions of me,
and then there's the other person.
I have kind of this, yin
and yang type of thing

to my personality.
So, depending on the song,
you might get either version.

It's true to who I am, and other people
can relate to it too.
We're not perfect,
there's days where you're
probably a great kid,

and there's day where
sometimes your parents are like

"Oh my God."
Maybe. Maybe you're just great
all the time, I don't know.

- Thank you.
- Are you?
- Kind of.
- See what I'm saying,
see what I'm saying?

- Do you guys have any ideas in terms of
song, or songs, or album, or
concepts, or any sort of idea

that I should put in to my music?
- Honestly no, cause like you've been
doing pretty good by yourself.
- Your albums are great.
- Good job Tom.
- We like them.
- I love you guys.
We'll thank you guys.
- You wanna sing Marmalade?
- Can I hear you do it?
- Okay.
Ain't nobody get up in my car today.
- Aye.
- Back seat feeling like a charter plane.
- Aye.
- I be riding through the town,
my music up.
Windows down yeah you can hear me now.
I turn it up.
- Up.
- I need that bass.
- Bass!
- And my chain so bright
can't see my face.

I be riding through the town, town, town,
I be riding through the town, town, town.
Yeah, I'm done.
[laughter and clapping]
- Yo that was very good.
That was very, I'm very impressed.
- I'm sweating.
