Mac Miller - "Blue Slide Park" Preview

Mac Miller has released the album art and the lead single from his next album, Blue Slide Park, and I haven't been disappointed yet. The art in particular takes a mature approach, generalizing Miller's childhood park to a minimal form of representation with shapes and a stripe. If this is reflective of the direction he is taking with this album it will mean only good things, as Mac should be realizing at this point he is going to have to grow up to have any staying power in the hip hop scene. Based on the preview so far, if I see this in the record store I'm not going to hesitate to buy it... that is after it comes out on November 8th. Lets hope the rest of the album keeps pace.

See the lead single Frick Park Market below, as well as a track called Face the Facts that Miller leaked with the one and only DJ Premier. This track isn't off the album, but off a mixtape that Miller has set to release before the album drops called 92 to Infinity. Produced by DJ Jazzy Jeff, this will be looking to get the buzz up just in time for launch date. Such strategy.
