Terrible news about Mac Miller. One of the dopest artists of the new hip-hop generation, with infinite talent not only as an MC but as a songwriter, producer, musician and more. So sad.

I’ve been playing Mac’s music pretty much nonstop since the news of his passing broke on Friday afternoon, including his latest album Swimming which is really remarkable and the playlist below of Soundcloud favorites. I also re-watched his NPR Tiny Desk concert a few times. RIP Mac, we’re going to celebrate your life by playing your music forever.

My boys ItsTheReal re-posted their podcast interview with Mac from 2015, with an emotional intro about their friendship. Check it out…

RIP Craig Mack

“Flava In Ya Ear” was the first tape I bought when I got my driver’s license back in the summer of ’94. It will forever bring me back to one of the best times of my teenage years.

RIP Craig Mack.

*UPDATE*

Check out this dope Amerigo Gazaway remix of the “Flava In Ya Ear (Remix)”.

The Making of Black Beatles

Thanks to the “Mannequin Challenge”—the latest viral social media craze that even Hillary Clinton is taking part in—Rae Sremmurd’s go-to backing track “Black Beatles” just cracked the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. To celebrate, watch producer Mike Will Made-It break down how the track was made. Very dope.

Props to Genius.
