Mac Miller‘s really warming up to this SoundCloud thing, isn’t he? “PlaneCarBoat” is his third release in two days on the social music service. He’s really used it as an avenue for exploration so far. The first song he released was a cover of Bright Eyes‘ “First Day of My Life,” a strange but admirable experiment for any hip-hop artist. The next song he let go had a chopped and screwed vibe to it, rendering Mac’s vocals nearly unrecognizable. Now on his third release, he’s handling the production duties himself under the pseudonym of “Larry Dollaz.” The song itself is pretty solid, although the chorus is kind of corny. It’s hard to hate on a song that features killer verses from Schooboy Q & Mac Miller. I’m looking forward to what other little side projects Mac has stashed away that he plans to release in the next few days. Who knows? Maybe he’ll do a polka song next. That would be pretty fresh.
(As a bonus, we’ve included a recently leaked collaboration between Mac and Wiz Khalifa that was probably recorded circa 2008/2009, judging by their flows. It’s a nice little trip through history for y’all. Looking back, the title couldn’t have been anymore accurate for two of Pittsburgh’s finest.)
