Watch: Blue Scholars, Macklemore & Grynch ‘North by Northwest’

Last week there was a rally held to show support for a new multi-purpose arena in Seattle that would house a NBA team and potentially a NHL franchise as well as host concerts and other events. Several former Sonics, including Shaw Kemp Gary Payton, Detlef Schrempf and Slick Watts, attended as did the arena project’s chief investor Chris Hansen.

Also on hand were The Presidents of the USA, Blue Scholars and Common Market, who all performed in support of the Sonics returning to Seattle. I’ve written a little bit about my love of the Sonics previously but this rally shows that it’s more than just me who wants a NBA team back in Seattle. Check out the video above to see the rally crowd and watch the classic Seattle hip-hop cut “North by Northwest” performed by Grynch, Macklemore and Blue Scholars.
