The video above shows “Thrift Store” from American rapper Macklemore. In the chorus of this song you hear the words “I’m gonna pop some tags“. This video has an element of humor to it. The slang term “popping tags” is traditionally used when spending large amounts of money. However, in the video Macklemore raps about buying things at a thrift store (second hand store), where used things are sold for a very cheap price.
