Let’s Revisit Mac Miller’s Early Celebration Of Weed, Rhymes And Good Times

On Friday, noteworthy hip-hop artist Mac Miller passed away at the age of 26.

While he is being remembered for his contributions to hip-hop and his passion for the music, many of his fans loved Miller for the simple fact that he seemed like them, and that he never lost his sense of himself in his fame.

Nothing displayed this notion better than the single "Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza" off of his first major mixtape "K.I.D.S.", which launched his career back in 2010.

On the track, the then 18-year-old rapper drops lines like "Weed’s got me laughin’ like a damn hyena," and "Cali for the kush cause boy I know there’s plenty there." The song - both in its lyrics and its attitude - typified the high school stoner archetype as it existed in the late 2000s.

As Miller went on to explore new mindsets and musical styles throughout the rest of the decade, he never lost that friendly, guy-next-door image that he presented here, in what served as an early career thesis statement.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic superstar obsessively derided by Republicans, appeared on the 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' on Thursday to talk about the proposed "Green New Deal," a much-publicized resolution to address climate change and economic instability in the country. The Green New Deal has gotten a great deal of press lately, especially on right-leaning news organizations such as Fox News who claim it will ban everything from air travel to ice cream to cow farts. President Trump had publicly stated his opposition to the resolutions, citing these reasons.
