Macklemore Previews New Offset Collab “Willy Wonka”
Macklemore is putting the finishing touches on his latest album, Gemini, which is slated to drop on Sept. 22. But before then, the Seattle MC delivers a sneak peek of things to come by dropping a preview of the Offset collab, "Willy Wonka."
In the video preview, Macklemore and Offset post up in a home-based studio. Mack lays down his lines first over the spacey uptempo track. "I'm a motherfucking icon/boots made of python/I met with the Pres and I'm in Obama's iPod," he snaps.
Offset puts down his 16, which gets Macklemore pumped. "That's hard," he exclaims after hearing what the Migos member put down.
Last month, Mack revealed the cover and tracklist for Gemini, his second solo LP. The album features guest appearances from Offset, Lil Yachty, Kesha, Skylar Grey, Dave B & Travis Thompson, King Draino, Otieno Terry, Dan Caplen and more.
The "Thrift Shop" rapper has already announced a tour in promotion of the LP. The Gemini U.S. Tour will kick off in Portland, Ore., on Oct. 6, and will hit up 19 cities including, Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, Nashville, Detroit, Toronto and New York, before closing out in Boston on Nov. 14.
Gemini will be Macklemore's first solo album since his 2005 LP, The Language of My World.
