Mac Miller remembered at vigil in ‘Blue Slide Park’

Adam Kennedy Hip hop has hit something of a self-aware apex in the 21st century's first decade, having learned which buttons to press to ensure success. Pittsburgh native Mac Miller might very well sum up the phenomenon with this debut album proper, finally earning a UK bow after confirming his ascent on its stateside release in November Labelmate and close pal of radio-humping rhymer Wiz Khalifa , Miller — or the distinctly un-rap Malcolm McCormick to his postman — has worked hard to get this far. Yet Blue Slide Park is a record in semi-open conflict with itself, pitching twee cover artwork and dips into ballad-esque considerations against regular bluster-filled club hit intent.

The former packs in chunky beats and honest, semi-wistful verses that could position Miller alongside the true school hip hop movement. The next moment, with scant warning, Smile Back winds up and delivers a hypnotic momentum owing more to snap music straight out of dirty south strip clubs, name-checking Texan underground kings UGK for good measure.

Mac Miller – ‘Blue Slide Park’

Wider juxtapositions are similarly befuddling: Miller happily indulges in occasional spots of misogynist wordplay, then spits about conscious trailblazers De La Soul. Lyrically, the album has its conflicting moments. On one hand, his appeal has grown out of his silly, carefree enthusiasm. Luckily, Blue Slide Park is impressive enough that listeners should want to find out.
