Macklemore and Ryan Lewis make their grand re-entrance to the scene with “Downtown,” a viral-friendly, absurdist’s fantasy shot in and around downtown Spokane, WA. Yes, those are living hip-hop legends Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee, and Grandmaster Caz rapping back-up. And yes, that’s Ken Griffey, Jr. recreating his famed 1989 Upper Deck rookie card portrait. It doesn’t all make sense, but then neither does Mack and RL’s insane trajectory in pop music. You’d be at least partially dead inside if you didn’t smile at this one.
