Deep. Never had any problem with Pittsburgh emcee Mac Miller. Some did. And according to this documentary, dude had major problems with himself. Critics were hitting Miller hard in his pride since he was 19. Still he pressed on, got his his 2011 debut album pressed and independently released, and kept the pressure on until it hit #1 on Billboard. But then he moved to Los Angeles… and hit a sharp downward spiral into drug abuse. Talk about PROBLEMS! But, of course, Miller found his way through (and lived to tell the story above).
I’d rather be the corny white rapper than the drugged-out mess that can’t even get out of his house. You don’t go down in history because you overdosed.
Real sh!t. See what he went through, and how he made it through, in the documentary “Mac Miller: Stopped Making Excuses.”
Everything’ll be good by the weekend.
Just coming off one, right? Was it good? Then hopefully that will get you through to the next one. Mac Miller (and Miguel) banked on that with this track. Check out this video for “Weekend” off the “GO:OD AM” album.
So here’s a dope loosey. Chase N. Cashe laid down a beat. Mac Miller spit that funky, fiery, funny (some hilariousness, some weirdness) on it. And we have “Speed Racer” like viola! Sometimes you get a Hip-Hop gift. Don’t question; just listen.
Mac Miller Talks About ‘Battling’ Donald Trump And More On ‘The Nightly Show’ With Larry Wilmore (Video)
Mac Miller has his new album “GO:OD AM” out now (linked here). So, it makes since for him to go on some talk shows and talk it up. But for his The Nightly Show appearance, I think only host Larry Willmore mentioned it. That’s alright though, as anyone seeing him on this episode will likely be checking for his “Donald Trump” song and anything of Miller’s they can get their hands on. Twitter beef with The Donald after calling him a d!ckhead – hilarious! Actually, the whole panel discussion above is next level funny. And Mike Yard is a fool!! Must watch now.
(Mac said Trump is like a struggle rapper… bwaaahahaaaa!)

Ha! Damn, Mac. Letting this “100 Grandkids” track (produced by Sha Money XL) out for air. The rest of Mac Miller’s “GO:OD AM” album is in the can awaiting its release on September 18, 2015. Above are the crazy visuals for Mac’s single. Below, you can pre-order the album from iTunes and get the single download now.
Just spitting. Flipping rhymes with style over a Nottz beat. Easy work to Mac Miller and Sean Price. But don’t think everybody can do it like they do on this “Pet Sounds” just because they sound laid back. Respect to Miller. Rest In Power to Sean Mandela. Follow the link below to support Sean’s family and see more of P beasting it out on the m-i-c!
Thelonious produces the music to which Mac will eventually pen a homage to “Her” (stream above, linked below).
Get ready for Wünderkid…
This isn’t even making the album, but Mac and I have another in the stash for the album…stay tuned

Got to love when emcees drop worthy verses for a producer they truly appreciate. You know a Pete Rock beat alone was grounds for calling a song official back in the Golden Era. Mac Miller and ScHoolboy Q flow on this “Melt” (produced by Pete Rock) like they know, too. Hear ’em out below.
Boaz ran ‘cross the street one day (probably) to get the “Rapness Monster” beat from his Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania, USA) partner Larry Fisherman aka Mac Miller. Yep. Miller made the beat track. Oh, and Boaz made the song available for FREE download (linked below).
Pay attention. It’s here! The fully Pete Rock-produced Camp Lo mixtape is out; just as we posted it would be earlier. “Meagan Good” (featuring Mac Miller) is on it, plus a plethora of cuts with lyrical contributions from the likes of Talib Kweli, M.O.P., and Ab-Soul. Stream/download FREE below.
Hip-Hop’s Soul Brother Number 1, producer/DJ Pete Rock, and Bronx duo Camp Lo their “80 Blocks From Tiffany’s Pt. II,” mixtape on July 30, 2013. But before that, check out this “Megan Good” track. Ultimate trash talking emcees – Camp Lo’s Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede along with Mac Miller – doing their thing over a funky track.
Only been a minute since we had the joint from Statik Selektah featuring Mac Miller and Sean Price entitled “21 & Over” (off Statik’s forthcoming album “Extended Play”). Now, there’s a video for it… and it’s a bit crazy. Watch it.
Mac Miller and Sean Price crack this Statik Selektah track “21 & Over.” The single is from Statik’s forthcoming album “Extended Play” (due out June 18, 2013).
Waiting on that new Ab-Soul album? Everyone is. But at least we have “The End is Near” (featuring Mac Miller). Track produced by Larry Fisherman.
Produced by Alchemist, “Confessions of a Cash Register” features Prodigy starting the rhymes with classic crime-murda-murda-not-loving-these-hoes talk. Then Mac Miller wraps the rap (all the way to the abrupt gunshot on the track). Alchemist and Prodigy make good music. This Mac track continues the tradition.
This joint is pretty dope with the smooth chillout vibe & I completely understand what Mac Miller is doing by ‘screwing up’ his vocals on the track. I’m not sure if this is eventually gonna be a reference track for another rapper, R&B singer, or if the Pittsburgh kid will use it on an upcoming project, but this J-Hill produced track definitely sounds dope to me on some chillout shieeeeeet.
The video (shot and edited by Daniel and Michael of K1X) compiles clips of 1982 (Statik Selektah x Termanology) touring across Europe with Nas, Mac Miller, and others. Backstage snippets, b-roll footage on the road, interactions with fans, and a vignette of the 1982 duo rocking their hit “Lights Down” off their mixtape “2012” (out now) in front of an eager crowd adorn this piece.
Well, well. Pittsburgh’s own Mac Miller decided to set off his own fireworks for July 4th! This is a video (released on Independence Day) for “America,” a single off his “Macadelic” mixtape (out now). For this banger, it seems he loaded extra firepower – Casey Veggies and Joey Bada$$ (who was just featured in a post here). So, celebrate your Independents’ Day (get it?) today by clicking and watching now!
I like when Big Sean chooses the right tracks where you can better comprehend & appreciate his lyricism. I’ve felt that sometimes when he’s flowing over the right instrumentation, like his freestyles over J Dilla tracks, the listener can truly see that this kid from Detroit is not really a slouch lyrically. This smooth new joint “Hundred Dollar Bill Skyscraper” produced by Drumma Boy is a perfect example of a track complementing the emcee while not overshadowing him so much that he has to dumb down his flow with the ‘Wobbly Wobbly’ lyrics. It’s shaping up to be another good year for Big Sean with Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music compilation album “Cruel Summer” on the way, his sophomore solo album, & finally connecting with his Pittsburgh homie Mac Miller for the first time on this track as they try to continue building ‘Hundred Dollar Bill Skyscrapers’ during the course of their careers….
