Hip-Hop | Wiz Khalifa – Goin’ Places ft. Mac Miller

Posted by on September 2, 2012

Pittsburgh’s resident DJ, Fast Eddie, got an exclusive collab from the two PA kids for a feature on his most recent installment of his mixtape series Live From The 412.  Although Wiz and Mac share a friendship, they have never fed off each other for features, and for the most part keep a distance in the booth to remain individual artists.’  That is certainly not to say we haven’t heard joint tracks from the two in the past, because we have, but they’re typically few and far.  This one doesn’t sound like it’s hot off the decks, but embrace it and enjoy the byproduct of the Taylor Allderdice alumni.

Interviews, Videos | Music Talks: Mac Miller Interview

A friend of mine hit me up telling me he had been working diligently on a new independent interview series highlighting some of the hottest young stars in the music industry.  Initially I was skeptical of the idea and even more so of the execution.  That was until I finished reading the lengthy email and fixated my eyes on the interview featured above.

Executive Producer, Julian Patterson, has spent the last 8+ months constructing an independent team of talented entrepreneurs, the force behind this exciting new series, Music Talks.  From director Andrew Zenn to producers Rosa Barney, Eric Wahlberg, Will Berkowitz, & Jeff Rutkowski, the team has delivered a fun, fresh, and informative approach highlighting the bright faces of today’s industry.  The light fare of questions are heavily based around discovering more about the personal side of each artists career and life, something many fans don’t know much about.  Per usual, Mac keeps it G and answers the questions with his good sense of humor, keeping a smile pasted on host Rosa Barney’s face throughout the interview.

For those of you asking “What’s next?”, Music Talks will be bringing new interviews every month for the foreseeable future, including that Swedish sensation _ _ _ _ _ _, NYC electronic duo, The K_ _ _ _ _, along with many other big names in the game.  #MusicTalks

Hip-Hop | Mac Miller – Missed Calls (ID Labs/ “Nobody’s Home Yet” Remix)

Posted by on July 9, 2012

While Mac dropped the visuals for one of the most popular tracks off his debut album, Blue Slide Park, just last week, Pittsburgh producer, E. Dan, of ID Labs tossed together a remix to “Missed Calls”, well, because he can.  Although ID Labs produced more than half of Mac’s album, Ritz Reynolds can be credited with the original production on this track.  E. Dan amps up the beat but doesn’t waste time rearranging Mac’s  love-story laced lyrics.  If the original was too slow for your liking, try this remix.



Hip-Hop | Big Sean ft. Mac Miller – Hundred Dollar Bill Skyscraper

Posted by on June 28, 2012

Big Sean teams up with Mac Miller on this Drumma Boy produced duet. This a collaboration I’ve been waiting to hear. According to Big Sean they have been homies for some time (as seen in the tweet below), but finally got the opportunity to put something together and this was the result. He’s been a busy man lately working on multiple projects such as the G.O.O.D Music collective album Cruel Summer, and his sophomore album Sean. Be on the lookout for those when they hit the shelves!

Hip-Hop | YONAS – Drive It Like It’s Stolen

Posted by on June 11, 2012

YONAS has made waves lately with his remixes nobody has been able to touch. Most notably, our favorite Bronx street preacher flipped Foster The People’s chart topping hit, “Pumped Up Kicks”, which is on the brink of breaking 2,000,000 hits on YouTube.  While YONAS’ attack has been rather stealth over the past few years, he’s beginning to garner the recognition he deserves with love from some of the most respected hip-hop sites such as XXL.  Continuing with his string of amazing sampled tracks, Y-O brings it back to the blueprint and delivers a filthy new track over The Glitch Mob’s “Drive It Like You Stole It” which will act as the second single off his upcoming project.  Consider this a verbal warning as YONAS shares a lesson on how to “Drive It Like It’s Stolen”.  The Transition mixtape coming June 25th!

“This is not Mac Miller, this is that much iller, this is R.I.P. hipsters, I’m a backpack killer” – YONAS

Hip-Hop | Mac Miller – Day One: A Song About Nothing

Posted by on June 9, 2012

Mac tweeted out this self-produced track early this morning. Not too shabby in my opinion production wise and lyrically. He gets into a bit of his sippin syrup talk, but other than that the flow is nice. Much better than that Onaroll track he dropped a few days back.

Hip-Hop | Mac Miller x Pharrell – Onaroll

Posted by on June 5, 2012

She get good grades she suck a d*** what more can you ask for?” -Mac Miller, folks. 

While excitement has been considerabe for Mac’s upcoming “Pink Slime” mixtape, the first release “Onaroll” featuring Pharrell is nothing short of horrific. I’ll admit up front that I’m not sold on the kid. There’s just nothing about his regurgitated “weed and snapbacks” message that relatively impresses me, this new effort being no exception. Mac, I know what we can ask for: How about we get off the white lady, clean our act up, and switch up the I-need-more-nasal-spray regurgitated subject matter? Sound good?
