Name Origin:
Macklemore took the name of a superhero he drew up for a junior-high homework assignment, Professor Mackelmore, and used it when dressing up in "crazy costumes."

He explained: "I did some thrift shopping. I would buy these outrageous, crazy costumes; like plaid golf pants and crazy furs. Every time that I would wear these outfits I would call myself Professor Macklemore and then I’d go out on the town and kick it." He later dropped "professor" and went by Macklemore as his stage name.
