Ashley Outrageous premiered a previously unreleased Mac Miller and Ab-Soul collaboration entitled “All The Time.” The Chuck Inglish produced track may end up on Mac Miller’s upcoming album Watching Movies With The Sound Off due out sometime this year.
Mac Miller – All The Time (feat. Ab-Soul) (left click, save link as)
Let me start this post off by saying this is the Mac that originally made me a fan. Although his verse seems to be cut short, it still has that High Life/K.I.D.S. feel that I’ve been craving this summer. Yes, if I want his old music I could just go back and listen to his old mixtapes, but sometimes it’s good to hear new Mac Miller that doesn’t sound like it was created while on drugs *cough cough* “Planecarboat“…other than weed. Oh and Wiz is alright on this new joint too. After saying all of this, I bet this track was recorded years back, oh well. Check out “Goin’ Places” below.
Sometimes the simplest songs are entertaining and then sometimes they are not listenable. The chorus on Mac Miller’s new single simply is Mac saying
“It’s a plane, it’s a car, it’s a boat. A plane car boat.”
After hearing this chorus, TDE’s own, Q spits a nice verse with a dope flow. Mac Miller comes in later and spits a slow paced verse over his own interesting production and then picks it up showcasing his fast flow towards the end of his bars. Definitely a different style for Mac, but different can sometimes be good. This track isn’t for everyone, that’s for sure.

Female rapper, Raspody got The Cool Kids & Mac Miller on her new produced by 9th Wonder produced joint “Round Table Discussion.” This joint is real smooth and is most d
opefinitely worth the listen. This single will be featured on Raspody’s debut The Idea Of Beautiful coming out August 28th.
Mac and Pharrell let go their second offering to their collaborative EP, Pink Slime. Pharrell handles the chorus and production while Mac Miller spits over this interesting beat. This one has a different vibe then the first single “OnARoll.” Not sure how I feel about this single yet. The beat has the potential to be a banger, but it doesn’t really stand out to me. It is just a regular joint to me. ”Glow” can definitely be a grower though. Listen/download the track below and tell us what you think in the comments.
Under The Influence Tour at Nikon Jones Beach Review & Footage (Chiddy Bang, Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller & Wiz Khalifa)
Last night the Under The Influence tour stopped at Nikon Jones Beach theater in New York. The lineup consisted of Chevy Woods, Schoolboy Q, Chiddy Bang, Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa. Getting to the show, there was a ton of traffic so I didn’t make it to see Chevy Woods & Schoolboy Q. Right as I got to my seats, Chiddy Bang started up their set. The Philly duo came out with a lot of energy and interacted with the large crowd as much as possible. Xaphoon Jones was on the drums and Chidera was rapping as usual. Chiddy even freestyled after getting suggestions about what to rap about from the crowd. It’s not a surprise that Chiddy holds the world record for the longest freestyle. The crowd became more lively as Chiddy Bang performed their remix to Flux Pavilion’s dubstep track “I Can’t Stop.” The duo closed up what I would call a very solid set with “Opposite of Adults.” Watch Chiddy Bang performing “I Can’t Stop” below.
Next up was Compton native, Kendrick Lamar. K. Dot was one of the main attractions that got me to attend this show. Kendrick opened up with “F*ck your ethnicity” and then went into “Hol up.” I have to say that the crowd was real quiet during a majority of Kendrick’s performance, but then again most of the kids wanted to see Mac and Wiz and they were “under the influence” (pun intended). I might have been the only one rapping every word to all of his tracks, but I am definitely glad I was able to catch Kendrick. He rapped his last verse to “Hol up” with no instrumental and then went into his 2010 classic “P & P.” In attempt to liven the crowd, Kendrick Lamar said in between tracks “Y’all sitting down like you at church or something, this is under the influence.” More and more people got up while his set went on and by the end I heard a good amount of the crowd singing along to Kendrick’s new single “Swimming Pools (Drank).” The rapper even brought out Jay Rock to perform “Hood Gone Love It.” Not many people recognized Jay, but the crowd got hyped up at the beginning of the track. Overall, Kendrick’s performance was very impressive. Like Chiddy Bang, he attempted to interact with the crowd also, but his music definitely differs from other performers that were going up that night. Kendrick Lamar most likely left the venue with more fans than he arrived with, which shows that he delivered. Watch “ADHD”, “Hood Gone Love It” featuring Jay Rock, and “Swimming Pools (Drank)” below.
The second Kendrick Lamar closed up his set, a picture of Mac Miller went up on the video screen. That single picture caused the crowd to erupt. At that moment I realized how a majority of the crowd attended this show to see the young white rapper. Mac Miller’s stage production was something to remember. Since his set took place later in the night, the light show was in full use. I almost felt like I was at an EDM show with all of the lasers and smoke machines on the stage. Mac went through a lot of tracks off of his most recent mixtape Macadelic. Before dropping “Lucky Ass Bitch”, Mac mentioned how his Mom would say “That Lucky Ass Bitch is a banger Malcolm.” And a banger it is. The crowd reacted with a lot of energy to even his mixtape tracks. Mac Miller also went through songs off of Blue Slide Park like ”Of The Soul” and “Missed Calls.” He even dropped his most recent single produced by Pharrell “Onaroll”. Although that track seemed to get a mixed response on the interwebs, the crowd seemed to love it. Mac Miller definitely stepped up his stage presence and production from the last time I saw him at Best Buy Theater. It is amazing seeing how Mac progressed from performing in front of his first sold out NYC crowd at the Highline Ballroom a little more than a year ago to now performing to a sold out crowd at Nikon Jones Beach amphitheater. Watch my footage of Mac Miller performing “The Mourning After”, “Diamonds And Gold”, “Onaroll”, “Frick Park Market”, and lastly “Missed Calls.”
Last up was Wiz Khalifa. Wiz showed the crowd why he deserved that headlining spot and he did way better than I expected. I saw Wiz last summer since Big Sean was opening for him and I was pretty bored during that show. Khalifa seemed to do better with a larger crowd and navigated around the stage comfortably going through more slowed paced
smoking joints. I had to leave early since I had practice at 6am the next morning, but Wiz Khalifa kept the crowd alive during his set. J. Cole even showed up on stage and Wiz even revealed the album artwork to his upcoming project. Although I am not Wiz Khalifa’s biggest fan, I can say that he didn’t bore me as much this year. You can check out the footage I got to “Homicide” below.
Thank you Christian (follow him on twitter) for allowing me to use your iPhone to get all of the concert videos..They didn’t let me bring my camcorder in, but the iPhone videos turned out to be pretty clear.
illRoots presents Mac Miller’s latest music video featuring Casey Veggies and Brooklyn rapper, Joey Bada$$. Mike Waxx and Mike Carson created another dope visual for this track just in time to celebrate America’s birthday.
Big Sean unexpectedly dropped this awesome collab with Mac Miller. Beats dope and verses are great, as you’d come to expect from both rappers. Maybe this means we’ll finally get to see this Big Sean mixtape… Be sure to add this one to your summer playlist.
For the last month or so Mac Miller has been hyping up his new video for “Missed Calls” and yesterday it was finally released. The music video is more than just a simple visual, but it plays as a movie and I honestly could misplace it for being a preview to a chick flick. Mac was right when calling this a mini movie. It doesn’t hurt that this track was one of my favorites off of his debut Blue Slide Park.
