Madlib teased unreleased music by the late Mac Miller at a DJ set in San Diego on Saturday night.
Soon after Miller’s death last September, it was revealed that he and Madlib had been working on a collaborative album titled Maclib. We got a first taste of the album this weekend, when the producer played an unreleased track from himself, Miller, Thundercat, and Freddie Gibbs.
The album was originally hinted at by Theolonious Martin in an interview with DJBooth, in which he revealed that there might be more music out there from the late rapper. The newly revealed track confirms those rumors, with Miller providing vocals on a track co-produced by Thundercat.
The same night, Madlib also played a song from his forthcoming album with Gibbs, Bandana. Both Bandana and Maclib are yet to be given release dates.
Mac Miller’s Swimming was posthumously nominated for Best Rap Album at this year’s Grammys, losing to Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy.
