Mac Miller - 'America' (feat. Casey Veggies & Joey Bada$$) [Watch]
I know a lot people didn't really get on with Mac Miller's debut album, in fact I wasn't the biggest fan of it either. But that initial mixtape K.I.D.S. really did it for me with its doped-up, laid-back; breezy-as-hell beats.
If we just accept that those days are over and let ourselves move on, then we might be able to uncover all the hidden gems scattered throughout Miller's discography, with this latest little ditty 'America' being one of those.
Sure, it's definitely carried by Casey Veggies and the stellar Joey Bada$$, but it could've easily slipped in as a bonus track on K.I.D.S. and is definitely worth at least a single spin.
Take a listen via the visuals below, which are predominately tinged red and have plenty of American references. Independence y'all!

The premise is fairly straightforward...to create a playlist o... (continued) [read more]
Last night I saw a rather entertaining documentaryÂ about how some Germans perceive Sweden. ApparentlyÂ it's seen as some idyllic native environment, where nature is untouched and everyone lives in surroundings taken straight out of a Astrid Lindgren book. Being Swedish myself I can tell you that this is not the case.Â But whatÂ we do haveÂ is great music. Here's a little mixtape to illustrate that. Hello Saferide - â2008â³ The Garlands - "You Never Notice Me" Souls - âE... (continued) [read more]
This is the first mixtape I've done that hasn't been madeÂ for one specificÂ person so I figured I'd start close to home. Portland, Oregon gets a lot of talk about "cultural mechas," and most of that is bullshit. It's a town like any town--with an equal mix of good things and some not so good. There's a lot of big old-growth trees, red wine, bridges reaching over the Willamette River, cheap living, blackberries on the vine, forest land, river islands, etc. There'sÂ also some good ...
