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!

(Please feel free to tell me for next time if i should've done otherwise) So I sat down at my desk with a bottle of red wine and itunes on shuffle hoping for a little inspiration. Anyway, Natural Disaster by Enon came on... (continued) [read more]
We're currently in the midst of a hip-hop revolution. The genre has been getting smarter, more original and infinitely more intriguing over the past few years, and the tirade of awe-inspiring noises shows little sign of abating. Rap music as we know it has been turned on its head - gone (mostly) are the gang war mechanics and major feuds (Azealia Banks aside), no longer is every song a spiel of self-aggrandising braggadocio or a love letter to drugs, misogyny and violence.
