Mac Miller – “Right Now” (Unreleased)
Mac Miller is one of the rappers that crawled out of the primordial ooze in Asher Roth‘s footsteps circa 2009. However, as Mac Miller continued to crawl on his hands and knees in Asher Roth’s direction, he eventually caught up to him, passed him, and left him in the dust. Now, Mac Miller, the frat-rap icon, and college rap kingpin, has just dropped a previously unreleased track entitled “Right Now.” Taking off over a repetitive, tangy, synth-laced instrumental, “Right Now” talks about how unique Mac’s style is, how quick he’s taking over the rap game, and best of all, how respectful he is as a person. In other words: The same spiel you would expect from any typical obnoxious rapper. With obvious metaphors, and lame word play, “Right Now” quickly becomes another product of the mindless mutant college rap breed. In fact, as unfortunate as it is, it even comes off sounding like a watered down version of Drake‘s “Say What’s Real.” Although you can’t hold it against rappers like Mac Miller, Chris Webby or Asher Roth for putting out this sort of music (it is a popular style of music to capitalize on), what you can hold against them are their often terrible attempts at trying to come across as intelligent or witty.
