Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are putting out a plethora of new music and videos lately. Lucky us. Their new album's on the way. Their Wings video was released a few weeks back. It's epic. Their new song Can't Hold Us is holding it down on Itunes. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' latest video, Otherside Redux was directed by Jason Koenig, the same dude that brought us the video for My Oh My. Make sure you check out TheJourney's interview with Macklemore and all our posts on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis here. Macklemore is hip-hop.
Nearly a year ago, Otherside, a fan favorite off of the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ VS EP, was remixed and released as part of their VS Redux project. During that span, and spurred on by a powerful fan-base who have long embraced Otherside (the song has over one-million plays one YouTube), Macklemore and Lewis felt compelled to deliver a worthy visual to accompany the already stirring narrative. Along with Macklemore and Lewis, the visual was shot in multiple locations by director and long time collaborator Jason Koenig (My Oh My). The song, remixed and now featuring Christopher Mansfield (Fences) on the chorus, chronicles Macklemore’s personal struggles with drug abuse and its glorification within the hip hop music he loves.
