Across the span of just a couple years, 23 year-old Mac Miller (born Malcolm McCormick) has come a long way.
After releasing his widely-acclaimed mixtape Faces last weekend, Mac Miller phoned in to Billboard's "The Juice" podcast to discuss the new project, his drug use and his collaborations. Check out the full 33 minute podcast at the bottom of the page.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.
Have you ever seen the viral video of Susan Boyle performing for the first time on Britain’s Got Talent? A superficially unattractive older woman walks out onto the stage to perform a song before hundreds of people and four judges.
Mac Miller's been hinting at his new mixtape Faces for quite some time, and the 24 track project is finally here. Faces features guest spots from Schoolboy Q, Sir Michael Rocks, Earl Sweatshirt (twice), Rick Ross, Mike Jones, Vince Staples and Da$h.
Mac Miller announced recently during a live show that he would be dropping a new mixtape on Mother's Day aka May 11th. The rapper even debuted new music off the mixtape for the crowd, although didn't reveal a project title at the time.
