Mac Miller Lets Go Of A Pete Rock-Produced Track Featuring ScHoolboy Q (Audio)
One year ago this week (June 18 to be exact), Mac Miller released his critical sophomore album, Watching Movies With The Sound Off. Famously released the same day as Kanye West’s Yeezus, and J. Cole’s Born Sinner, many Heads professed that the then-Rostrum Records MC made the best album within the high-profile trio. Whether that was your opinion or not, the effort was a major departure from the innocent subject matters of Blue Slide Park, and a delve into intricate flows, a stream of consciousness style, and a lot of bars centered around drug use, marginalization, and being weird much more than being cool.
Yesterday, in honor of the anniversary, M.M. shared a song Heads didn’t get to hear from the W.M.W.T.S.O. sessions. Produced by Pete Rock (who Mac worked with on 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s, Part 2), “Melt” is another trippy diversion from the norm from the Pittsburgh MC/produced. ScHoolboy Q, who has since become a mainstream, unconventional Hip-Hop star in his own right, shares the billing. Like the verses and rhymes were at the time, the beat is not what one might expect.
