Watch Mac Miller Make His Comeback With "100 Grandkids"

We last heard from on Mac Miller in late 2013 with his "The Star Room" music video, in which he lamented not signing to a major label and discussed his strained relationships. While we don't know if things have gotten better in his personal life, the Pittsburgh MC can now say he has sealed a big deal, with his self-created REMember Music imprint joining Warner Bros. Records. The first creation from the partnership comes via Mac's dizzying new single "100 Grandkids" and its must-see video.

The bouncy cut sees Miller spending the first half waxing on vows made to his mother ("Made a promise to my mama that I'd bless with some grandkids / She could spoil 'em") before flipping the subject matter where he begins reflecting on the first $100,000 he earned. Along the way, Diddy's "Bad Boy for Life" is interpolated with gospel-like croons.

The accompanying video is equally unmissable. Mac spends the first part hanging with kids costumed up for a school play, then ends up spitting about his earnings in a parking lot alongside a hydraulics-enhanced convertible. 

While some Mac fans may have been worried a major label deal could stunt the rapper's work, it looks like a little extra money is producing high-quality music and visuals for GO:OD AM, the rapper's just-announced third album, set to drop September 18. The dude revealed that he scrapped nine albums worth of material while creating GO:OD AM—whatever's left is bound to be gold, right?
