Macklemore Makes Questionable Decisions in “Corner Store” Video Featuring Dave B and Travis Thompson
After dropping videos for "Glorious" and "Good Old Days," Macklemore returns with the visual for his latest track, "Corner Store."
The Johnny LeFlare-directed video stars Macklemore alongside fellow Seattle rappers Dave B and Travis Thompson. Shot in Seattle, the "Corner Store" video kicks off with the young rappers trying unsuccessfully to buy beer with a fake ID. With the night seemingly ruined, the rappers are saved when a long-haired Macklemore buys the alcohol for them.
After drinking at the park, chaos ensues as cops bust the late night party. Taking a page out of the Eddie Murphy playbook, Macklemore also portrays the cop, the liquor store cashier and a mother.
In related Macklemore news, the Gemini rapper recently announced he's hitting the road with Kesha for the Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore tour. The nine-week, 30-date trek kicks off next year on June 6, 2018 in Phoenix, before the artists make stops in Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas and more. The tour wraps up on Aug. 5, 2018 in Tampa, Fla. at the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre.
Kesha appears on Macklemore's latest album on the song "Good Old Days," while Macklemore's longtime collaborator, Ryan Lewis, is one of the writers on Kesha's "Praying."
