Macklemore Plays God in New ‘How to Play the Flute’ Video
Track appears on rapper’s 2017 solo LP ‘Gemini’
MacklemoreÂ hallucinates a series of surreal, hilarious scenes ”“ fromÂ reigning over his own personal Heaven to posing for a 1970s prom photo ”“Â in his new video for “How to Play the Flute.”
The Jake Magraw- and Macklemore-directed clip opens with featured emcee King Draino placing the rapper under hypnosis on a park bench. The rest of the video is a series of wacky vignettes: Macklemore rapping on the beach with his head poking out of the sand, painting a nature scene in a Bob Ross-styled outfit, posing nude for a painting (and generously extending the length of his penis blur) and mimicking the viralÂ “Cybergoth Dance Party”Â YouTube clip.
“How to Play the Flute” highlights Macklemore’s second solo LP,Â Gemini, which also features the singlesÂ “Glorious,”Â “Marmalade”Â andÂ “Good Old Days.”
The rapper is currentlyÂ touring with Kesha on a joint jauntÂ that extends throughout September. The U.S. leg continues July 18th in Detroit, Michigan.
