Mac Miller “You (EP)” Mixtape Download & Stream
Mac Miller releases his Official EP You, Hosted by Most Dope. The 5-track EP has Features Larry Lovestein (Mac Miller) & is Produced by The Velvet Revival.
Tapping into his alter ego, Larry Lovestein AKA Mac Miller has released his You EP which serves as a joint collaboration between the rapper and The Velvet Revival. The You EP, is a free 5-track project, which finds the emcee tapping into his love of Jazz msuic. All songs were written by Mac Miller for your audio pleasure. The five-track offering consists of atypical fare for the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania rapper. Instead of dropping bars, he croons over lounge jazz arrangements, recalling the smooth sounds of an earlier era.
Mac Miller has never been stingy when it came to giving out free music. He is always in a creative space trying to push the limits and think outside the box. Under the alias Larry Lovestein, the Pittsburgh MC goes a different direction with the five song EP, You. Instead of hip-hop, Mac Miller goes the Jazz route with this free project. Mac Miller has long been an artist with a sense of wonder about the world of music outside hip hop. One listen to any of his releases and you’re sure to find influence from virtually every genre, so it only makes sense that he is finally stretching his legs and experimenting in these other realms himself.
Mac Miller releases tracks with steamy titles such as “Love Affair“, “A Moment 4 Jazz“,”You“, “Suspicions“, and “Life Can Wait“. Mac Miller‘s style of infectious fratboy rap is no well-kept secret. Having blown up before 2011 and essentially taking the year down with him and his debut full-length Blue Slide Park, it was weird to expect anything besides big beats and bigger hits from the Pittsburgh rapper this year…which is exactly why You is going to turn heads. Completely thrown out of left field (even after the experimentally sound Macadelic mixtape), You is a five-song venture into Miller’s alter ego, Larry Lovestein with his band The Velvet Revival, and an apparent interest in jazz. You contains absolutely no rapping.
Call it novelty, call it an honest attempt at jazz, or whatever you’d like, but one thing is certain-You is successful in the sense that is is experimental, and it should be compelling to see where Mac Miller goes from here. You is something new and fresh from Mac giving us a taste of his musical abilities other than being a rapper. Follow on Twitter @MacMiller @MedievalBeatz Rap Beats
