Plentiful Macklemore Cadillacs in Video for “White Walls”
Seattle rapper Macklemore and collaborator Ryan Lewis have had a breakout 2013 thanks to the Billboard chart topping success of their singles “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us.” The team’s latest single, “White Walls,” pays tribute to Cadillac by deemphasizing the luxury and focusing on the fun.
The accompanying video features appearances from A$AP Rocky, Trinidad James, Wiz Khalifa, Big Boi, DJ Drama, and Sir Mix-a-Lot, all of whom join Macklemore (starring as “Mackle Jackson”) through his transitions into various ridiculous outfits (a vintage Shawn Kemp jersey being arguably the most ridiculous).
Arguably, the stars of the video are the classic Cadillacs ridden in and driven by the rapper and his various co-stars, including a number of vintage coupes like those than inspired the recently-revealed Elmiraj concept and ride high on those pristine whitewall tires from which the song derives its name.
With so much going on in the video, including everything from matador posturing to Sir Mix-a-Lot operating a tow truck, it’s easier for you to just watch than it is for us to try to explain. So watch, but be aware that there is some inappropriate language and some vigorous kissing action going on in there. What do you think of the Macklemore Cadillacs?
