MACKLEMORE RELIVES HEAD-ON CRASH WITH SHOBOY AND NINA ON NEW YORK’S 92.3 AMP RADIO
Seattle rapper Macklemore opened up for the first time about the head-on collision he was involved in on CBS RADIO New York’s 92.3 AMP Radio. Driving with his young nephews, the crash left his car completely totaled after being hit by a drunk driver.
See key quotes below:
(0:30-0:45) – “There’s just that split second of like, ‘I’m gonna die,’ — boom — and then you get hit. …I thought the other guy was dead, everyone in my car was safe — my little 10-year-old nephew was using curse words that I didn’t know he knew. ”
(0:47-1:09) – “It was super scary… he was obviously drunk. There’s no way that anybody sober would have been driving that fast trying to make that turn. We were just lucky that the car that I was in was very much like a tank and took it very well… but if that wouldn’t have been the case I might not be here today.”
(1:26-1:31) – “Take Ubers, walk, take the bus. Just don’t drink and drive. It’s not worth it.”
