After a year spent almost entirely out of the spotlight, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are ready to return.

They started earlier this month, with the release of “Growing Up,” and now they’re gearing up to drop their sophomore album. But what’s been going on since we last heard from them?

Late last month, MTV News headed to Seattle to catch up with the rapper at his home, and to spend time with the two at their studio.
In our new mini-doc, Macklemore gets candid about how fame weighed on him at the height of their success, his ongoing battle with addiction, the joys of fatherhood, what to expect from the new album and more.
