In July 2012, Macklemore and Lewis announced that their debut full-length album, The Heist, would be released on October 9, 2012 as well as a subsequent world tour to promote the release.[4] On July 18, 2012, the duo released the Mary Lambert-assisted "Same Love" in support of Washington state's Referendum 74 regarding gay marriage.[5] It was announced that the song would be included on the album, as were previously-released songs "My Oh My", "Wings", "Can't Hold Us", and "Make the Money". In an interview with The Sermon's Domain, Macklemore confirmed a collaboration with ScHoolboy Q on a song about Cadillacs called "White Walls". A song titled "Jimmy Iovine" featuring Ab-Soul was also confirmed.[6] On September 4, 2012, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis released a video promoting the deluxe edition of The Heist, showing it as a box made out of faux-gator skin.

The Heist debuted at number 2 on the US Billboard 200 chart behind only Mumford & Sons's Babel and sold 78,000 copies in its first week, marking the best sales week yet for both Macklemore and Lewis. 83% of the first-week sales derived from digital download. As of May 1, 2013, it has sold 638,000 copies.[18][19] It also debuted at number 4 on the Canadian Albums Chart.[3] The album reached the number 1 spot on iTunes in various countries, including the US and Germany.

On April 3, 2013, it was announced that the album has reached Gold status, with over 500,000 copies sold
