Macklemore Brings Out The Greats For The Ryan Lewis Assisted “Downtown”

Macklemore takes it back to his “Thriftshop” roots with a new cut called “Downtown.” Bringing Ryan Lewis along for the ride, the video takes a walk down memory lane with appearances from  Kool Moe Dee, Grandmaster Caz, Melle Mel and more. Brash and outrageously infectious, the Jason Koenig visuals get an added touch from Seattle b-boy group Massive Crew.

Macklemore also gives a nod to a childhood hero with a cameo from Mariner’s legend Ken Griffey Jr. at the 1:43 mark.
