We last heard from on Mac Miller in late 2013 with his "The Star Room" music video, in which he lamented not signing to a major label and discussed his strained relationships. While we don't know if things have gotten better in his personal life, the Pittsburgh MC can now say he has sealed a big deal, with his self-created REMember Music imprint joining Warner Bros. Records. The first creation from the partnership comes via Mac's dizzying new single "100 Grandkids" and its must-see video.
The bouncy cut sees Miller spending the first half waxing on vows made to his mother ("Made a promise to my mama that I'd bless with some grandkids / She could spoil 'em") before flipping the subject matter where he begins reflecting on the first $100,000 he earned. Along the way, Diddy's "Bad Boy for Life" is interpolated with gospel-like croons.
The accompanying video is equally unmissable. Mac spends the first part hanging with kids costumed up for a school play, then ends up spitting about his earnings in a parking lot alongside a hydraulics-enhanced convertible.
While some Mac fans may have been worried a major label deal could stunt the rapper's work, it looks like a little extra money is producing high-quality music and visuals for GO:OD AM, the rapper's just-announced third album, set to drop September 18. The dude revealed that he scrapped nine albums worth of material while creating GO:OD AM—whatever's left is bound to be gold, right?
