The new interview series Prologue intends to to introduce ideas and provide support and inspiration for aspiring artists and entrepreneurs. As the series's first guest, award-winning producer Ryan Lewis was invited. The growing success of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis in the last couple of years has been well documented. GRAMMY statues, sold-out shows around the globe and a high level of media attention has been somewhat synonymous with the duo from Washington. Arguably the most interesting part of their career is that the pair started out as an independent act. According to Prologue, Lewis seemed to be a great guest since he and his partner were "forced to be particularly entrepreneurial given their independence and turned what can be perceived as constraints into their advantage." The resulting conversation encompasses Lewis's work ethic, sacrificing social life, the difference between entrepreneurship and hard workers, and more. More than enough material for an in-depth conversation. Watch it above.
