Mac Miller hit Twitter last night to release the second single off his upcoming collaborative EP with one of the most influential and unique veteran producers, Pharrell Williams. Since his arrival on the scene several years ago, the Pittsburgh representing Miller has taken enormous strides both musically and financially, as he was named to the Forbes 30 under 30 list earlier this year. At first, many loyal hip-hop fans mistakenly wrote him off as either riding on the success of Wiz Khalifa or being a corny, frathouse rapper. In the last couple years, with the success of his debut album Blue Slide Park and subsequent awesome mixtape Macadelic, he has emerged far from Wiz’s shadow and proven himself with both his real lyrical talent and admirable work ethic.
“Glow” gives a glimpse of what makes the rising Miller and established Pharrell great artists with extensive wordplay and original, bouncy production. Stream and download the track below and look out for their Pink Slime EP, out soon.
