Face it, 2015 has been an amazing year for rap, and next up to rep for the young guns is Mac Miller.
Though he’s been working on the album for the better part of 3 years, the return is near, Sept. 18 to be exact. The first offering from the GO:OD AM is “100 Grandkids,” which proves Mac Miller is finally the lyricist we all knew he’d mature into. He finds himself in a kid’s play with his face super imposed on a moon and rhymes for the first half of the song before he lays another verse whilst hopping around in front of a hydraulics equipped low-rider at night.
Upon dropping K.I.D.S, Mac was pegged as the high school rapper who ran around creating mischief with his friends, smoked weed and rapped about it. He attempted to translate this style into his debut album Blue Slide Park (an ode to park he frequented as a kid growing up in Pittsburgh) but he’d outgrown the mold at that point. On Watching Movies With The Sound Off, his sound seemed very Odd Future-esque and was largely over shadowed by Yeezus and Born Sinner which dropped the same day, and Magna Carta Holy Grail dropping soon after.
But now Mac is back, and so are his rhymes. Check out how Pittsburgh’s golden boy ended his 2.5 year drought above.
