It has been a year since Macklemore & Ryan Lewis came through and shook the walls of Hip Hop (Picture Snoop Dogg in the “New York, New York” video). After selling over 13 million units of their three hit singles, snagging Grammy Awards, and pissing part of Hip Hop off, the duo is back to drop a new jewel that comes as a visual. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ new track is titled “Downtown” and features Hip Hop pioneers Grandmaster Caz, Mellie Mel and Kool Moe Dee.
The new “Downtown” track almost sounds like a mashup of “Thrift Shop” and Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk”. Listen to the new track below and let us know what you think. “Pump It or Dump It?”
In the “Downtown” video below you can watch Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
exploit showcase Hip Hop legends Kool Moe Dee, Grandmaster Caz, and Mellie Mel as they hit the downtown streets of Anytown, USA. Be on the lookout for the duo and “friends” to take over the stage at this Sunday’s MTV VMAs.
Is this really Hip Hop?
Is that Ken Griffey at the 4:00 minute mark?
