Mac Miller teams with Casey Veggies and Joey Bada$$ on ’America.’
Mac Miller released his new “America” video just in time for the Fourth. And he’s not alone — Miller’s laid-back ode to the 50 states features Casey Veggies (whom we recently spotted on DWHY’s new jam “Kill Me Now”) and Brooklyn’s own Joey Bada$$. We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that some folks might not approve of a patriotic anthem that has almost too many instances of profanity to keep track of. But this is Mac Miller’s America, and we’re just renting land from him.
Watch Mac Miller’s “America” video featuring Casey Veggies and Joey Bada$$ after the jump.
“America,” which appears on his Macadelic mixtape, features a retro-tinged Hannibal King-produced track over which the three MCs join forces. The Mike Waxx- and Mike Carson-directed clip was shot entirely in New York City on April 25 as a way to commemorate the day that Mac sold out Roseland Ballroom. (Awesome job, bro). In the video, Mac and his buddies have a serious chill sesh somewhere backstage. They drink, they rhyme and occasionally wave the American flag around like Matadors — as one does! — as sick postproduction animation provides the clip with cool line drawings, and animated spliffs. Because AMERICA!
