Macklemore is a thrifty kind of guy, so when he wanted to score some tickets to his very own sold-out show in Seattle, he turned to Craigslist for the hook up.

The rapper recently posted a video to YouTube where he dons his very best British accent to prank call unsuspecting scalpers.

“Hello I’m calling about the Craigslist tickets for the Macklemore show,” he said, with collaborator Ryan Lewis sitting nearby.

When he found out the scalper was selling tickets for $65 a pop, he joked, “I don’t know if the bloke is worth 65 bucks a ticket.”

He was able to wheel and deal her down to $60 after calling himself a “two-hit wonder.”

Macklemore even invited the scalper to join him at the concert and when she refused, he dropped the ultimate bomb.

“I think you missed out a bit because this is Macklemore.”
