Video: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Leon Bridges – ‘Kevin’

Just two days before the release of their album This Unruly Mess I’ve Made, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis premiere the powerful video for “Kevin.”

The Leon Bridges-assisted song, which the Seattle-based duo debuted at the American Music Awards in November, is a somber one about Kevin, a young man who died following a battle with drug addiction. And the video, directed by Ryan Lewis and Jason Koenig, adds to those tones. In black-and-white scenes, Macklemore passionately rhymes about America, pain, and pharmaceuticals while walking through an abandoned building.

Mack and Ryan have also revealed several other tracks off the album, including “Downtown,” “Growing Up (Sloane’s Song),” “White Privilege II,” and “Buckshot” featuring KRS-One and DJ Premier.
