Macklemore& Ryan Lewis are having some serious beef – on the dance floor that is. The rap duo teamed up against Idris Elba in a loony dance battle in their “Dance Off” video that might rival the moves of Kanye West and Drake.
“I challenge you to a dance off,” Idris Elba mouths while wearing a luxurious fur, frock and American Gangster-like hat. “Hands off; no trash talk; no back walk, or the black talk. Just you, me, that’s all. No cat-calls, no tag teams, no mascots; right now…” he continued before flashing over to Macklemore.
The four-minute video cuts to the rapping pair as they battle literally everyone. They dance in the hotel, at wedding ceremonies, and even in the gym. To say the least, the video is a fusion of awkward and funny.
“Dance Off” is coming from Macklemore’s This Unruly Mess I’ve Made LP, which dropped back in February 2016. Check out the video below.
