Macklemore popped up on Chelsea Handler's Netflix show.  Right off of the bat, she made him uncomfortable by asking him why there aren't more white rappers.

'I think that there's a lot of white rappers. There's a lot of us. There's not a lot of great ones," Macklemore said.
Handler then wondered if he and Eminem were the only great white rappers.

There's definitely more than that ... it takes a lot. ... This is a tough question. I don't know," Macklemore stammered.
Later she asked him a question he was more comfortable with: What's the difference between rap and Hip Hop?

“Rap is something that you do. Hip-Hop is something that you live. That would be from a purist Hip-Hop standpoint.  Rap is an element of the culture," Macklemore said, acknowledging he probably stole the answer from KRS-One.
