The Boston DJ gets some all-star support from two of today's best MCs for his gold-digger anthem.
Grammy nominated DJ Clinton Sparks premieres his new music video "Gold Rush" and it stars some famous collaborators, rappers 2 Chainz and Macklemore and indie pop band Chester French lead vocalist David-Andrew Wallach a.k.a. D.A. Wallach. The track appears in DJ Sparks' forthcoming album "Disco Ball & Chain", set to arrive later this year.
The all-star treatment does not end with the vocals but also extends to the visuals, as the three-minute-plus clip features cameos by Motley Crue's founding member Tommy Lee and "Fast and Furious 6" star Tyrese Gibson. Lee is shown doing what he does best on the drums while Gibson takes on the guitar-playing role as Sparks, 2 Chainz and Macklemore handle the vocals.
The simple, no-frills video finds the guys dropping the energetic gold diggers anthem on board a boat, snapping pictures with the ladies and then performing it in front of a white backdrop, with a few seductive-looking females appearing throughout the video. As Sparks takes on the hook, 2 Chainz raps the first verse followed by Macklemore mentioning high end brands Dolce & Gabbana and Prada in his.
"Disco Ball & Chain" is DJ Sparks' first full length studio album with Photo Finish/Island Def Jam Records he signed into earlier this year. "Gold Rush" made its debut last May 21 along with the unveiling of the new album's cover artwork.
