Leave it to Post Malone to break all the NASCAR rules in his first trip to pit row. After a week of sneak peeks, Posty finally dropped the full-length video for his laid-back new single “Motley Crew” on Friday (July 9), in which he drafts off the release of the latest Fast and Furious blockbuster with a boozy, race car-themed track hang with his aforementioned raggedy gang.
“Count up the bands, stickin’ out/ No rubber band is big enough/ Chain is so heavy, can’t pick it up/ Came with the gang, a myriad/ I see your whip, hilarious/ Where is my roof? Mysterious/ My whip form Fast and Furious,” he raps over the spare, haunting backing track as he struts his way onto the asphalt at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California in a yellow and black jumpsuit while confetti rains down around him.
The Cole Bennett-directed clip finds Malone enjoying an unconventional red Solo cup of beer and a cigarette in the infield, where he hangs with said motley crew, which includes Ty Dolla $ign, Tyla Yaweh, French Montana, Tyga, Big Sean, Kerwin Frost, LoveLeo, SAINt JHN, Pressa, Trinidad James and, of course, Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, who also makes a cameo alongside real-life NASCAR legends Bubba Wallace and Denny Hamlin. In addition to taking laps in his custom Rolls Royce racer, the rapper hops in a classic convertible with Lee for a few spins.
The new track is the first fresh music from Malone since releasing his Hollywood’s Bleeding album in 2019. According to a release, the rapper’s first original music of 2021 is the lead track from a companion documentary project slated for release soon.
