Seatle rapper Macklemore went on Twitter to complain about the The Oklahoma City Thunder using his and Ryan Lewis's song "Can't Hold Us Down" to pump the crowd during home games.

Macklemore, who is a Seattle native, was probably alluding to the infamous rivalry that exists between Oklahoma and Seattle following the team's relocation and re-naming from The Seattle Supersonics to The Oklahoma City Thunder in 2008.

"Can't Hold Us Down" is Macklemore's second single featuring Lewis to go number one on the Billboard charts. The official music video for the song was uploaded on YouTube on April 17 and has been viewed over 26,800,000 times.
