Mac Miller releases two new tracks from his upcoming “Watching Movies With The Sound Off” album.
We already thought Mac Miller posing nude on the cover of his sophomore studio album, Watching Movies With The Sound Off (dropping June 18), was, like, the gift to end all gifts. Now, not only can we stare at Mac’s well-placed “Parental Advisory” sticker for days (heh), but we can top that off with listening to two brand-new tracks straight from the album: “Suplexes Inside Of Complexes And Duplexes” featuring Jay Electronica and “Gees” featuring ScHoolboy Q.
Listen to Mac Miller’s “Suplexes Inside Of Complexes And Duplexes” featuring Jay Electronica and “Gees” featuring ScHoolboy Q after the jump.
Set to a grimy, hazy, vaguely chaotic track, “Suplexes” has the “S.D.S.” rapper spitting about what it takes to be successful in the rap game and how if he had it his way, he’d rap about emo things that might not go over so well with the chicks: “You’re too bright to be inside a bunch of mediocrity/ But all those big words ain’t gonna get you paid/ And those abstract ideas for sure won’t get you laid/ You got it made in that mad house.” Um, are you sure that using big words won’t get you a girl, Mac? Because I loooooove it when dudes use words I have to Google. And I am NOT being sarcastic.
Next, on Mac’s ScHoolboy Q-assisted “Gees,” featuring a trippy, bubbly track courtesy of The Cool Kids‘ Chuck Inglish, Mac has a momentary bragging blackout as he spits about how sick his rhymes are: “Told Chuck I had a couple raps, so we kicked the drums/ All the best rappers are usually dead/ But I’m the poison that left a widow Juliet/ In the studio with candles lit and Buddha heads/ Coming up with all the coldest s***/ Take your Sudafed.” DAMN. Normally we’d be a little bowled over by all that bragging, but we kinda agree with Mac, so we really aren’t in a position to judge the hubris.
