Mackelmore’s songs aren’t typically ones that I gravitate towards, but there’s something about his latest song. “Downtown” is so chaotic it’s like car crash you can’t look away from. Then I wondered, why am I drawn to this? Answer: Kool Moe Dee. I grew up in a landscape where artist like Kool Moe Dee ran the rap gamut. It’s a familiar sound and his voice is so smooth. It creates a nostalgic wanting. I just want to know when someone is going to pluck Kwame out of obscurity? Then all will be right in the world of rap resurrection.
