Believe it or not, it's been 10 whole years since the late Mac Miller first dropped Macadelic. The mixtape was originally published online for fans to distally download back in early 2012. And since that first day it was put on, it has been downloaded at least 1.3 million times. It's clear it was a hit amongst his fans. So for its anniversary, which falls on March 23rd, the late rapper's estate has decided to release a vinyl to commemorate not just Mac himself but also to honor and celebrate the amazing music he put out. Here's everything you need to know about the record's drop.
The album was recorded not long after Mac released his debut album Blue Side Park. At the time, he was just a fresh faced 20-year-old kid who had no idea how big he would eventually become. 6 years after the original drop, he commercially released the record in 2018, but now this is the first time the album will ever be released as vinyl.
Alongside the remastered version of all the tracks, the vinyl will include never before seen clips from when he was working on Macadelic. We have no doubt that long-time fans of the rapper will rush to purchase one of these gems. Mac's estate publicized footage where we can see just how much Mac was involved in the process of creating his music. The videos, marked with the date March 23, 2012, truly show how much the artist was passionate about his work. It contains in-studio footage, concert moments, and even a conversation that he had with his inner circle. Also, anyone who buys the vinyl will see that it includes an embossed cover that has three-color segment LPs as well as an 11×17 poster.
Earlier this year, the later artist was commemorated during what would have been his 30th birthday on January 19th. Many fellow hip-hop stars paid tribute to Mac. "I hope that on your birthday, the clarity, and places and spaces that you've always wanted to go to, see and feel—I hope that you feel that infinitely," said Thundercat, who was supposed to tag along with Mac for his Swimming Tour back in 2018 before his unexpected passing. Make sure you buy vinyl before it's too late here - the proceeds are set to be given to the Mac Miller Fund.
