To be honest, I didn't even know that Mac Miller
was still producing music. His persona and records seems to be a representative point of a distant era of adolescents who found solace in a white teen co-opting a "blaccent" in the late 2000's. Though Miller has a handful of catchy tracks that I remember hearing at high school social gatherings, the majority of his repertoire is pretty mediocre to me. With several albums under his belt, he is gearing up to release his 2015 project in the end of September.
His first single for his upcoming album is called "100 Grandkids" and it starts off talking about his mother's inquiry about Miller's future offspring and then goes into territory of dreams, luxury, and futuristic promises. With an eclectic video accompanying it, he shows his goofier side by being superimposed onto a stage-crafted moon that hangs above costumed children eccentrically dancing. It's pretty weird, to be frank. With Mac Miller singing from this plastic moon for the majority of the video, I don't know exactly what his aesthetic has morphed into. Nonetheless, Miller will still provide his brand of hip-hop to east coast suburbanites, regardless of his artistic prowess.
