It’s the return of the Mack! Following the surprise release of their Ed Sheeran-assisted track ‘Growing Up,” Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are ready to takeover the music world once again with the premiere of their proper lead single titled “Downtown“!
Over a funky throwback-inspired beat, which brings their hit “Thrift Shop” to mind, Macklemore raps about buying a moped while Birdman and Timbaland are copping Bugattis, and hip-hop legends Kool Moe Dee, Eric Nally, Melle Mel, and Grandmaster Caz contribute vocals on the infectious chorus. “Downtown, downtown/ You don’t want no beef, boy / Know I run the streets, boy/ Better follow me towards (Downtown)/ What you see is what you get girl/ Don’t ever forget girl/ Ain’t seen nothing yet until you’re, downtown.” And if that wasn’t enough, the duo have also offered up a cinematic visual to go along with the song that you’ll just have to watch to believe. Consider me impressed – What do you guys think?
