Rapper Mac Miller has taken inspiration from some unlikely places, but in his new video for "Party On 5th Ave," the 19-year-old Pittsburgh native keeps it in the family. Inspired by his grandfather, Miller looks into the future, imaging himself and his crew as old men, living out their golden years on mobility scooters and engaging in traditional activities for elderly people such as carjacking, bashing and spray-painting cars and staging light saber-inspired cane fights.
After Miller and his entourage role around a park on mobility scooters, the crew stages a party/b-boy showcase in full costume, which we'll assume is not the part inspired by his grandfather, before the rapper tries, and fails, to outrun his younger, more athletic counterparts.
Miller recently performed at Chicago's House of Blues for MTV's "Live in Chicago" event, which saw the rapper perform "Best Day Ever (Remix)," "Knock Knock" and "Smile Back," the latter taken from his upcoming debut Blue Slide Park.
Incidentally, now that "Party On 5th Ave." exists alongside Tyler, The Creator's performance in Pusha T's "Trouble On My Mind," isn't it time for a "Best Use of a Mobility Scooter" category at the O Music Awards?
Blue Slide Park is scheduled for release Nov. 8 via Rostrum Records.
