Mac Miller Says ‘F— the System’ on New Song ‘Break the Law’
Mac Miller is going for the shock factor on his latest single, "Break the Law."
Rocking over drum-heavy production, Mac shows off his lyrical prowess, switching up his flow and dropping bold punchlines. "I killed the game like Jeffrey Dahmer did the '80s," he raps.
Midway through the track, Juicy J makes an appearance with a random ad-lib, delivering wisdom as only the legendary Three 6 Mafia rapper can. "Spending all your time just getting high will drive you crazy," Juicy warns.
The line comes days after Mac talked about his past drug use during an interview with Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club. It sounds as if Mac and Juicy have had multiple conversations about this topic prior to the interview.
The chorus channels the aggressive energy of N.W.A., fitting given the release of Straight Outta Compton this weekend. "Get money, f--- the system, break the law," Mac raps. It's a sharp contrast to his past work, which has typically been more laid-back in style and content.
"Break the Law" is the second single off Mac's upcoming third album, GO:OD AM, following the release of "100 Grandkids." The Pittsburgh native also dropped a collaboration with the recently deceased Sean Price called "Pet Sounds" last week. GO:OD AM is slated for a Sept. 18 release and is available for pre-order now. This will be his first album since signing with Warner Bros. in 2014, a big move since he was an independent artist for years.
