(Watch) Paul McCartney Goes #Mannequin, Embraces Hot Song “The Black Beatles” in Instagram Video


Paul McCartney stays hip, that’s for sure. Earlier this year he wrote a hit for Rihanna, and before that, Kanye West.

Now he’s embracing a hit record called “The Black Beatles,” performed by Rae Sremmurd with Gucci Mane. (Listen, don’t ask me, ok?) McCartney’s Instagram post is very arty– he takes on the viral #Mannequin pose with aplomb. And it looks like it was filmed at home by his own piano. There’s some nice art on the walls including a border painting by the late Sam Francis.

McCartney underscores his video with a part of the lyric in which he’s referenced:
I wear leather Gucci jackets like its still the 80’s
I’ve been blowin’ OG Kush, I feel a lil’ sedated
I can’t worry about a broke n—- or a hater
Black Beatle, bitch, me and Paul McCartney related

The OG Kush that’s referenced is a very high end marijuana. Paul has always liked his pot! I guess Rae and Gucci feel related to him for that reason.
