Following Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' recent tribute track to Macklemore's daughter, the Pacific Northwest rap duo have delivered, easily, the best song about buying a moped you'll hear this week! You can get gassed up with the pair's "Downtown" right now.

The track takes on a early '80s NYC feel, with pre-programmed beats, electro synths and a steady cowbell coming together for a Grandmaster Flash-style arrangement. Fittingly, the track also features assistance from old school rappers Melle Mel and Kool Moe Dee. What follows is a back-and-forth between Macklemore and a moped dealer, and a handful of bars that talk up the benefits of the vehicle over, say, a Ducati motorcyle.

A video finds the Seattle spitter riding around town on his newly acquired two-wheeler, and getting into b-boy posse brawls with a bunch of Warriors extras.
-- Exclaim!
