Mac Miller – “Lua” (Bright Eyes Cover)

Tom Breihan | February 7, 2014 - 10:55 am

Look, I tried to ignore this; I really did. But the streets demanded it. (The streets, in this case, are represented by Scott Lapatine, my boss.) Mac Miller, the frat-rap doofus who became a stoner-rap prankster, has covered the Bright Eyes song “Lua.” And he’s done it straight-up, as a faithful acoustic folk cover, with no rapping on it. I can’t tell if that’s better or worse than the alternative, especially since Miller can’t sing. If you can come up with any reasonable reason why this might exist, please leave it in the comments section. Listen below.

The only way I’ll be OK with this is if it starts a trend that somehow leads to Future covering “Something Vague.”
