Over the weekend at MoMa PS1 in Queens, Madlib and his Bandana partner Freddie Gibbs, Pardison Fontaine and others performed. In the context of its collection, to the delight of its audience, the veteran producer unveiled an unreleased joint work with the late Mac Miller.
At the top of the first verse, Miller spits “I’m doing EP’s in one day/Sober right now but I’ll be back by Sunday,”.
Despite the fact that it is uncertain where precisely the song originates, it may come from Maclib, the close mythical joint EP by Miller and Madlib.
During an interview with DJ Booth, Thelonious Martin appeared to let the cat out of the bag in February.
“So I’m trying to focus and DJ, and Madlib gets on and 15 minutes into his set he just randomly plays a Mac Miller joint,” Martin said. “And I turn to him, I’m like, ‘There’s more of these, right?’ He’s said, ‘Oh, yeah, there’s a whole album. Maclib.’
“What! What! He just kept moving on with his DJ set. If Madlib decides to bless the world with that project, he should.”
This is the second Miller joint work Madlib has teased ever since this year.
In March, during a set at Music Box in San Diego, he played a song snippet featuring the Pittsburgh-bred artist and his good friend Thundercat. Miller died of a drug overdose on September 7, 2018, sending shockwaves through the community of Hip Hop. He was 26 years old.
