Just days after the release of the second video from his forthcoming debut album, Mac Miller has surrounded Blue Slide Park with even more buzz. The Pittsburgh MC announced via Usteam last night that Blue Slide Park is now available on Itunes to pre-order. However, if his fans show enough love to get the pre-order count up to 25,000, the title track will be released early. If his fans and their entire families band together and somehow get his pre-order sales up to 50,000, he’ll donate 50k to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. And if history is made by securing 100,00 pre-orders, Mac Miller will release the album right then and there, no questions asked.

The young Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller seems to be more popular every single time I open my computer. Seriously, this kid cannot stop growing. He’s gone from near obscurity to selling out almost every show he plays. Not to mention he gets another 100k followers on Twitter every other week. The kid wonder met the 900,000 follower bench mark with the track “Willie Dynamite”, and to be honest, I’m just not saying this, it may be may favorite Mac Miller track, ever. It’s too funky, too smooth, his flow is too soft, but yet hits so hard, too damn clever, but yet it seems to be so natural. You gotta check this one out.

There are a set of musicians today, mostly rappers, who’s music could easily be described as weed-rap. Ganja-rhymes or spliff- hop would probably be suitable as well, but either way, the content of these musician’s lyrics is forever in debt to the sticky green substance they were more-than-likely smoking while making the track. Off the top of my head, and yes there are plenty more, Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, and Kid Cudi reign supreme in this group of rappers. So it was no surprise when Cudi’s 2010 album Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager featured a track dedicated to his drug of choice, but what was a surprise was when Shia Labeouf came on board to direct the visuals for “Marijuana”. The video dropped today, and well, it’s cool, but since they made such a big deal out of the fact Labeouf was directing it, I figured the video would feature a little more direction. It’s simply a documentary style following of Kid Cudi and crew on their journey to Amsterdam. I like the vintage style they went with, but that’s about the extent of the creativity in Shia Labeouf’s directorial debut. I don’t blame him though, he was probably stoned throughout the entire shoot.
