Macklemore and Zia Mohajerjasbi make "The Town" music video, a filmic love letter to Seattle
Posted by Andrew Matson
Macklemore and Zia Mohajerjasbi have made the most epic, sentimental rap video ever to come out of Seattle ("the town" in local rap parlance). More on this later, when I have time to unpack the song and video's billion visual and lyrical references to 206-hop history.
