Let’s be honest, there’s an old school rap head contingent of DJBooth that are going to collectively lose their bowels over the fact that the legendary DJ Premier and young rap upstart Mac Miller are on Face the Facts together. In response I’d like to quote that infinite source of wisdom, Wayne’s World: “Your point is both clear and concise, but allow me my rebuttal.” I don’t think we even need to mention that Prem’s laid back, classically cut beat is dope, so let’s turn our attention instead to Mac’s rhymes. Those same old grumpy rap heads should definitely recognize a plethora of references from the young Mr. Miller, ranging from Souls of Mischief’s ’93 To Infinity to a quote from Gangstar’s classic Mass Appeal. Sprinkle in some download and mp3 references and you’ve got nothing less than an inter-generational rap collaboration, although I’m sure some debate will rage in the comments below. Those who remain unconvinced of Mac’s hip-hop credentials may be convinced by his forthcoming mixtape, ‘92 Til Infinity, hosted by DJ Jazzy Jeff, coming ahead of his Blue Slide Park album, set to drop later this year.
