The biggest stories in hip hop music right now are ones we’re all familiar with: Dre’s Compton might somehow be the best of the year, writers are arguing about Drake’s backlash to the backlash to the backlash, and it just seems to be simpler to be a fan of Future right now.
So with all of these storylines taking root let’s not forget some of the things on page 2 of the newspaper. Today: the new Mac Miller album is imminent and he seems to be really happy with it. The video for “100 Grandkids” is a taste of what’s to come, and I like both the visuals and the song. Maybe it’s the red curtain, but the first half reminds me of the irreverence of early Eminem videos.
The new album is called GO:OD AM and it’s out September 18 via Warner Bros. Records. Major label debut!
