New Music: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – ‘Downtown’ featuring Grandmaster Caz, Eric Nally, Kool Moe Dee & Melle Mel

Just a few weeks after his duet with Ed Sheeran was released, Macklemore and production partner Ryan Lewis are back with their first proper single for their sophomore album, and it’s very much business as usual. ‘Downtown’ is in the same vein as ‘Thrift Shop’, throwing funny, inoffensive one-liners all over the place, bragging about his new form of transport – The Moped.

Also on board the track are some old-school hip hop legends, a very Mark Ronson-esque production, and a highly entertaining video (see below). No other details just yet on their follow up to hugely successful The Heist album, but expect a release before the year is out.
