As previously noted, Miley Cyrus breaks out her best Lil Debbie impression to go toe-to-toe with Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa on the new Mike Will Made It track, “23.” That ode to the iconic Nike Air Jordan shoe line now has a video that pays excessive homage to Michael Jordan’s legacy via repurposed jerseys, Chicago Bulls hats, the number 23 (sorry to Jim Carrey), the colors red and black, and various basketball imagery and accessories.
The track may not be a thrill-ride in and of itself but the Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip is good fun, uniting all four of the song’s stars under the high roof of a high school gym. The gang stage a full-on takeover of the place, making Cyrus their mole while Mike commandeers the principal’s office, Wiz hits lab to concoct something trippy, and Juicy … um, positions himself to steal some super sweet trophies.
The song hails from Mr. Made It’s forthcoming LP debut Est. in 1989 Pt. 3 (the Album) which will undoubtedly find guest star Cyrus “naughty by nature, like [she’s] hip-hop-hooray.” Has Jordan actually seen this? Meanwhile, the NFL is still freaking out about M.I.A.’s free-wheelin’ finger.
