This. Was. Everything.

We hoped there would be a moped or two when Macklemore and Ryan Lewis took the Pepsi Stage at the 2015 VMAs, but we had NO idea their performance would be this epic.

The dynamic duo graced MTV with a live re-enactment of the video for their latest single, Downtown.

Macklemore strolled through the streets outside the awards show, re-creating the memorable music vid almost shot-for-shot. This even includes vocalist Eric Nally making his grand entrance on a chariot of a giant eagle head!

And rest assured, there were PLENTY of mopeds. Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

Macklemore Admits To Drug Relapse — Criticism And Career Stress To Blame

| Filed under: DrugsMusic MinuteAddictionMacklemore

Macklemore admits he fell off the wagon.

With a lot of success comes a lot of pressure.

And after Macklemore had such an incredible year in 2014, he admitted he fell off the wagon a little bit. The recovering addict and his musical partner, Ryan Lewis, had won several awards and their songs were dominating the charts.

But, the 32-year-old explained that the attention and new, crazy lifestyle caused him to recently relapse and get back into drugs, specifically marijuana and pills:

"I held it together for a while. But, eventually, I stopped going to my 12-step meetings. I was burnt out. I was super-stressed. We weren't sleeping — doing a show every day, zigzagging all over the country. In terms of the media I was getting put into a box that I never saw for myself. The pressure and the fame — everything. All the clichés, man — like not being able to walk around, having no privacy, and from this TV appearance to this TV appearance, and the criticism, and the lack of connection, and the lack of meetings — all of that put into one pie was just…I just wanted to escape."

But one day, his fiancée, Tricia Davis, found some drugs he had been hiding, which forced him to press pause on his using habits, at least for a little while. But unfortunately, he explained, it didn't last very long:

"I sat in a car, a hot boxed car — I thought that was a good idea — and got high. And then the next day it was like, ‘What's up with the weed?' And once I'm there, it's over."

As much as he wanted to stop, the rapper revealed he just couldn't convince himself to quit:

"You know, like, Monday, I'ma stop…. OK. Tuesday, I'ma stop…. OK, f—k it, I might as well go on to the weekend. Sunday, I'm done. But after this bag of weed…"

It even began to invade his professional life:
