For whatever reason, there’s been a surge of weed related tracks in recent weeks. More than usual. Maybe we’ve just tuned our ear to that more often than we’re used to or maybe rappers have really been putting out tracks dedicated to that herbal medicine.
We realize plenty of our readers like participating in these types of extra-curricular activities, so we wanted to make it easier for you to find what you need: That bottanist connoisseur music. When you’re soaring through those kushington skies, these musical stylings are probably going to be your soundtrack. Some of these songs might make you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud and turning into liquid, while others will make you nod your head while riding out with the window down through the chilly Fall weather.
If any of you have more suggestions, please let us know in comments.
After getting up with one big Rostrum Records label mate in Wiz Khalifa, Boaz comes back with another Rostrum heavy weight Mac Miller for “Everything” off of Bases Loaded. Listen as both artists enjoy their grind of this life long dream in music and wouldn’t mind shring you their stories. Bases Loaded will finally be dropping tomorrow so check back for that.
We’ve seen our fair share of Mac Miller tracks the past week, and today he released another cover. The Elliott Smith cover of “Angeles” is another acoustic rendition for Mac, as he’s been recording these from the comfort of his own home for fans.
Talib Kweli’s Attack The Block mixtape will serve as the appetizer for his upcoming Prisoner Of Conscious album, but it almost looks like a full meal was served. With features including Black Thought, Styles P, Ab-Soul, Ryan Leslie, Mac Miller, Maino, Planet Asia and more —what does he have on deck for the album with a lineup like this already?
Tracklisting and link after the jump.
After giving us two songs yesterday, Mac Miller doubles up and releases his collaboration with ScHoolboy Q. If you remember, the two went on the road together for the Under The Influence of Music tour this Summer. No details on if a project from Mac is on the way, but fans have a couple tracks to hold them over for the moment.
OS REWIND: Mac Miller – Someone Like You
Mac Miller uses this early Friday morning to drop two new songs. The first, “Someone Like You,” is a slowed and screwed up track produced by J. Hill. The second is a Bright Eyes cover, and shows Mac on the guitar strumming his skills along with some singing.
Two completely different styles.
The homie Mac Miller stopped by Funkmaster Flex’s show earlier tonight, and laid down some BARS on this new freestyle. Do remember his Pink Slime project with Pharrell is on the way.

OS REWIND: Mac Miller – Glow
The church league champions, Pac Div, are spreading their wings and collaborating (the last three tracks have been group-only releases) with Mac Miller and Raven Sorvino on their latest track titled “Black Acura.” The haunting production gives all the artists the opportunity to slow it down a bit and talk to them through the song real quick.
Expect the upcoming GMB album from the Pac Div crew to drop real soon.
Produced by Thelonious Martin.
After getting hit with a lawsuit by Lord Finesse over the use of his “Hip To The Game” instrumental for his K.I.D.S. mixtape, Mac Miller spoke to Sway about the origin of the court battle between the two, for those who weren’t aware of it.
Mac emphasizes that he did it out of the sheer love he has for Hip-Hop at a time when nobody was really checking for him and Finesse has now turned the situation into a negative one, even though the two have spoken about it and he tried to resolve the situation on his own. He still appreciates the OG’s showing love to him.
The suit is still on-going, but Mac has no animosity towards Finesse. He still reps Big L wherever he goes and even copped a Lord Finesse LP while he was out in Japan.
After the jump, he speaks on how much Lamont Coleman influenced him to make music.
For the first time ever, Rapsody’s “Roundtable Discussion” features The Cool Kids on a 9th Wonder production. Mac Miller sets the track off, and they all hold their own for this single from the upcoming The Idea Of Beautiful album dropping August 28.
From Pittsburgh to Raleigh, then up top to Chicago.

Pittsburgh native and custom shoe designer Ben Smith of Brush Footwear pays some homage to Mac Miller with two customized classic pair of Vans. The first pair are inspired by Mac Miller’s debut album Blue Slide Park, an all white pair of Vans with Mac’s Blue Slide Park album artwork on the toe and his signature on the heel. The second pair is a cool grey colorway and features Mac’s camp (Most Dope) logo on the toe and Mac’s signature on the heel, much like the all-white pair.

Who would have thought Mac Miller and DJ Premier would be the best of friends?
That’s what Mac said in this sit down with MTV News. DJ Premier seems to be giving Mac a lot of knowledge, especially for his trips overseas, as Mac has made his first rounds on tour out there. He also spoke on finishing up “Pink Slime” (his project with Pharrell), but says conflicting schedules have prevented the rapper from getting it done.
