Why Is Macklemore in ScHoolboy Q's Psychedelic 'Collard Greens' Video?

Kendrick Lamar appears, too, but he's actually on the song

"Collard Greens," the first single off of L.A. rapper ScHoolboy Q's upcoming album, is a song about (surprise!) smoking weed. So the video is exactly as trippy as you would expect, with Q's disembodied head forming a kaleidescope pattern in pitched-up contrast, alongside shots of him and collaborator Kendrick Lamar partying with a bunch of people. Also Macklemore. Macklemore (who collaborated with ScHoolboy on "White Walls") is just in the corner of the party looking goofy as hell.

You'll also notice the text "#Oxymoron" flashing into the video — that's the title of Q's new album, his first on Interscope. "Collard Greens" is the third song released from the record so far, along with "Yay Yay" and a snippet of a new track at the end of the director's cut of Kendrick's "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe" video. Q also popped up this year on the remix of A$AP Ferg's "Work," which has found itself a bit of time in radio rotation.
