Breakout rap act Macklemore and Ryan Lewis continue to celebrate their home base of Seattle with a star-studded music video for the single “White Walls,” taken from the duo’s million-selling full-length, The Heist.

After a campy, spaghetti western-tinged opening that finds the rapper dubbing himself “Mackle Jackson,” the fun and colorful clip is loaded with hip-hop cameos, boasting star turns from a cavalcade of rap luminaries, including Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky, Big Boi of Outkast, DJ Drama and Trinidad James. L.A. rapper and Kendrick Lamar associate Schoolboy Q shows up to deliver his feature verse in the song, as well as share a blunt with a car full of bathing suit-clad older women before they all jump into a swimming pool.

Car enthusiasts will surely be excited for the slew of vintage Cadillacs throughout the clip, but it’s the Seattle love that runs thickest in the “White Walls” video. Local singer Hollis features on the song’s hook and throughout the video, and there’s a party scene shot with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performing atop famous Seattle Capitol Hill landmark Dick’s Drive-In on Broadway Ave surrounded by fans.

Bringing the clip full circle is an appearance from Seattle hip-hop legend Sir Mix-A-Lot, who first showcased Dick’s Drive-In for his own 1998 music video, “Posse on Broadway.”

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ fall world tour (which launches in Europe) lands in America on October 22, when the duo headlines the Rose Garden in Portland, OR.
