WTF: Mac Miller Covers The Bright Eyes Ballad “Lua”

Mac Miller has released a variety of odd musical offerings through his alter-ego Larry Fisherman, but last night he outdid himself with the debut of a Bright Eyes cover that is sure to have indie kids tweeting up a storm in no time.

Accompanied by only an acoustic guitar, Miller does his best to croon the lyrics of Conor Oberst during his rendition of “Lua.” The song’s semi-tragic tale of lost souls clinging to one another (as well as their addictions) on a cold night plays as well as ever, even if Miller’s voice is in no way comparable to …

Mac Miller Parts Ways With Rostrum Records

Philadelphia native Mac Miller has announced he is no longer a member of the Rostrum Records family.

According to a new story on MTV, The “Donald Trump” rapper has reached the end of his contract with Rostrum Records, which has been his home throughout his entire career up to this point. Though the door is open for Mac to one day return, the rapper claims now is the time to try something new.

“Rostrum is my family. That is forever,” Miller said in an exclusive joint statement issued to MTV News on Tuesday (January 14). “No matter what, …

FREE MP3: Mac Miller – “Erica’s House”

Mac Miller has been slowly leaking new material over the last several months, and last night he continued that trend with the unexpected debut of a new track titled “Erica’s House.”

Posted to Soundcloud under the name of his alter ego Larry Fisherman, “Erica’s House” is a lo-fi track that is big on wordplay and minimal on production. Miller opens with a few spoken lines about life and being frustrated with people who confuse him with Macklemore, then uses the verses to display his latest tongue-twisting lines on existence and pop culture. He touches on where life has taken …

Mac Miller Live From Space

STREAM: Mac Miller – “Earth” (Feat. Future)

Things get a little laid back on Mac Miller‘s collaboration with Atlanta’s Future. Earth is the latest track from Live From Space to hit the net, and it kills. The album will be composed of five songs that didn’t make the cut on Mac’s last album, Watching Movies With the Sound Off, and nine live tracks recorded from The Space Migration Tour, which took place earlier this year.

For those who think this is just another feeble attempt to make some last-minute sales before 2013 ends, it’s not. Miller performed the entire tour while backed by The Internet

Michael Giegerich’s ‘Best of 2013′ In Music

I could preface my list of personal favorite records from 2013 with a stereotypical tangent concerning how difficult it was to handpick each choice, but that would be a completely boldfaced lie. Throughout the year, each one of these albums stood out to me as soon as they emerged from my headphones and latched onto my mind for the weeks and months that followed. That’s not to say there weren’t any surprises within my audio experiences, as a certain Pittsburgh rapper who wasn’t even on my musical radar ended up blowing me away while an old favorite managed to reach …

This past summer, the notoriously happy-go-lucky performer released Watching Movies with the Sound Off, which sold over 100,000 copies in its first week of sale, and debuted at number three on the Billboard 200. Miller additionally spent much of October in Europe, touring extensively with fellow rappers Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz, and also found time to …

Action Bronson Releases ‘Blue Chips 2′ Trailer

Action Bronson’s sixteen track collaboration with producer Party Supplies, Blue Chips, was an absolute monster of a mixtape that dominated certain Under The Gun staffers’ listening sessions around its debut back in early 2012, so the anticipation surrounding the New York rapper’s forthcoming Blue Chips 2 has reached new heights as Bronson has released a fantastic trailer in anticipation of the free album’s release. Finding Bronson playing the role of an apparently powerful gangster, the clip shows the story behind Patrick Ewing missing a crucial shot in Game 7 of the NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals in 1995 as Bronson coerces …

Mac Miller Releases “Gees” Video Featuring Schoolboy Q

Pennsylvania native Mac Miller has released the official video for his new single, “Gees.”

The latest song off Mac’s recently released Sophomore effort Watching Movies With The Sound Off, “Gees” pairs the Rostrum Records star with longtime friend Schoolboy Q against a beat that is all kinds of ridiculous. Though both emcees are capable of rapping circles around a number of the biggest names in the game right now, this track is more of a relaxed, carefree rhyme fest with referencing to girls, drugs, and all the fun you can have when you’re young and rich. Fittingly, the video …
