UTG LIST: 5 Essential “Macadelic” Tracks


Mac Miller has come a long ass way since 2007’s But My Mackin’ Ain’t Easy. Not only has he become one of the few caucasian rappers making a living in the limelight, he has single-handedly crafted a subgenre of hiphop all his own. His label debut, Blue Slide Park, opened at number one on the Billboard charts with 145,000 copies sold and now he’s back for more.

Released Friday night, Macadelic is Mac Miller’s first mixtape of 2012. The album features seventeen new tracks, as well as appearance from Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, and more. We know many of you are diehard Miller fans and have probably devoured the entire tape a few times, but for those not quite as fond of hiphop, we’re here to help. After several discussions, a meeting that dissolved into madness, and fights amongst staff, UTG has settled on 5 ESSENTIAL Macadelic jams and collected them for your listening (and downloading) pleasure after the jump. Enjoy!
