Just as I was about to go on a Twitter rant about how certain younger hip-hop artists are extremely disappointing--Lupe Fiasco, I'm looking at you--I stumble upon Pittsburgh's Mac Miller. Not only is "Good Evening" a track that nicely samples The Isley Brothers' "Between The Sheets" a great idea, but the youth inherent in his voice is an indication of his lyrical ability. Managing to spit three verses in the course of a near four minute-long track without boring me? That's impressive. Also impressive? His fourth full-length mixtape K.I.D.S. drops in two days. Have I done my best to peak your interest yet? Make sure to check his video for "Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza," a great reminder of the era when the Diggin' In The Crates Crew ruled, after the bounce. Get to pressin' and playin' below.
