Mac Miller’s title for his latest mixtape, Best Day Ever, could qualify as understatement of the year because this Pittsburgh native has been having a best day every day for the better part of seven months now. His K.I.D.S. tape woke up everyone from your 15-year-old sister to old Hip-Hop heads concerning the young gun’s potential and Best Day Ever–coupled with an XXL Freshman ’11 cover appearance–only provides further supporting evidence.
Its lead single, “Donald Trump,” plays like everyone’s latest guilty pleasure, while leaks “In the Air” and “She Said” have distinctly cool synthy beats that perfectly match its owner’s laidback persona.
It’s only March of his so-called freshman term, but the man they call Miller is starting to make waves early to ensure those fantastic days transcend into a monumental year. Case in point, the kid shut down Ustream, Datpiff and his own website trying to get this to us. Too busy having the best day ever to worry about deadlines.
