Making this effort to catch up on the Alternative Hip-Hop. I never knew it would be so much fun.
Two year old track New Faces by Mac Miller featuring Earl Sweatshirt & Da$h sounds so fresh. Filtered deep bass and super amateur organ playing.
Just love it.
Mac Miller was born Malcolm James McCormick in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania who released his debut album Blue Slide Park on independent Rostrum Records. The album went to number 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart in the USA.
He goes by aliases Larry Fisherman, The Velvet Revival, Larry Lovestein, Delusional Thomas, and worked with fellow Pittsburger Wiz Khalifa, Domo Genesis, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Jay Electronica, Tyler The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt and DJ Jazzy Jeff.
Mac Miller has since moved on from Rostrum Records to releasing on his own label REMember Music, distributed by Warner Brothers Records. He released GO:OD AM in September 2015.
Sounds super fresh, listening to another track Avian I would even site influences like Phillip Glass.
Apparently Mac Miller experienced some challenges with over the counter drug abuse. Hopefully this is under control and he is back on track to making fun music.
Here’s the music video for 100 Grandkids, looks like too much Warner Brothers money was thrown at a great independent act. Stay in control of your shit, kids!
Do you love Mac Miller?
