Hear Unreleased Mac Miller and Madlib Song
In February, it was revealed that late rapper Mac Miller had put together a entire album with respected Cali beatsmith Madlib. Now we get to hear a snippet of the fruits of their labor.
On Saturday night (March 15), 'Lib performed a DJ set at Music Box in San Diego, Calif. He had some special surprises for the crowd, which included debuting a previously-unreleased Mac banger. As per usual with Madlib, the record is hella soulful, comprised of a face-twisting sample. "Fuck the bitch, met her once/Think she the one 'cause I met her at a record shop/We start from a line then connect the dots/I'm forever hot," Mac spits on the record. The track is also said to feature Thundercat.
Madlib also premiered a new track from his long-awaited Bandana collab album with Freddie Gibbs, which finds the Gary Gangsta flowing flawlessly over another looped sample fit for a movie score.
The Mac and Mad project, titled Maclib, was first teased back in February when Thelonious Martin revealed the Pittsburgh rhymer had recorded an album's worth of material with Madlib and recalled how he found out about it.
“So I’m trying to focus and DJ, and Madlib gets on and 15 minutes into his set he just randomly plays a Mac Miller joint,” Martin explained. “And I turn to him, I’m like, ‘There’s more of these, right?’ He’s said, ‘Oh, yeah, there’s a whole album. Maclib.’ What! What! He just kept moving on with his DJ set. If Madlib decides to bless the world with that project, he should.”
Neither Bandana or Maclib have solid release dates.
