A little over a year back, Mac Miller made his first appearance on Toca Tuesday.  Just over a year later, Mac returns joining the Shade 45 crew along the likes of the OG, Bun B, and Statik Selektah for a nice lengthy interview focused around respect and the heart of hip-hop.  Bun shows undying respect for the young kid as he prep’s for the release of his debut album, Blue Slide Park.  With 7 mixtapes under his belt, Mac explains the depth and concept behind the album and how it is such a full project.

Mixtapes | Mac Miller – I Love Life, Thank You [Mixtape]

Posted by on October 15, 2011

After hitting 1 million twitter followers, Mac Miller decided to treat everyone to an entire free mixtape. I’m just as surprised as the next guy at this decisions. Then again, it’ll probably revamp his pre-sales for his upcoming album Blue Slide Park, which is slated to drop early November (unless he hits 100k pre order first). Below are a few of my favorite cuts off this mixtape.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Tayyib Ali Summer Tour Footage (Video)

Posted by on September 14, 2011

While Tayyib Ali had a busy summer on the road, Jon Kilmer was behind the camera capturing nearly every moment of it.  From New York to Philly, to Massachusetts, to Boulder, Tayyib showed fans just what he’s all about.  I was fortunate to catch up with Tay down in Plymouth, MA where he had the crowd moving like a veteran.  Still only 19, this young Philly gun is poised for success and with new material just around the corner, expect more big things to come from Ali.

In other news, Statik Selektah released the track list for his upcoming album, where Tayyib will make an appearance along with Mac Miller, Bun B, Talib Kweli, Joel Ortiz, Big K.R.I.T., XV, and several other notable artists.
