Flat Tummy Tea on Spotify.
I was wondering why he's been on instagram talking about flat tummy tea lately.

I wonder if some of them will be under his jazz alter ego.

Larry lovestein? Lets hope so, i loved that You album.
But yeah, apparently he spent three years during his heavy drug phase in the studio but not releasing anything.
From a scan of reddit, it seems that there have been leaks of rumours that he recorded a hard rap album at the same time as divine feminine but released divine feminine instead.
In terms of output, if you look at the intro song to swimming he said he wrote and recorded that two years prior to the album because he knew the concept he wanted to follow. He then recorded ten different songs to open the album but came back to the original. So his output is massive. I also recall interviews where he said his process is to record up to 200 songs with a concept in mind for an album and narrow it down to what we see, so the amount of songs is potentially unbelievable, although obviously quality might not always be there!
Last off topic point on my nerding out of mac, have you heard his two mixtapes under his delusional thomas alter ego? Run on sentences vol.1 and 2? Both available on YouTube and worth a listen.

I've finally found someone else to nerd out on Mac with, the girlfriend has to listen to enough of it :pac:
Run On Sentences Vol 1 and 2 are such an experience. Listened to them with a joint or two one night and it was bliss. I love them both so much. Especially "Smile" at the end of Vol. 2.
His potential catalogue is absolutely insane, I can only hope we get to hear even some of it. Really eager to hear Circles, the follow up to Swimming which was apparently close to being finished.
Saw you mention it above about Clockwork tweeting he has the Maclib album, he seems to be causing friction since Mac's death. Wasn't invited to The Celebration of Life concert and Q tweeted last night "theres paying homage and theres getting paid". I know ID Labs also had an exchange with him on twitter a month or two back when Clock played an unreleased song at a gig he had in NY, telling him he had to chill. Mac was also due to go on tour without him for the first time and pretty sure they didn't talk in the last few months of Mac's life. So there must have been something happening between them.
Also worth mentioning for anyone who doesn't know, there was an unreleased Mac track released last week by Seth Hirsch, called Say Goodbye. Turns out this Seth Hirsch dude somehow got his hands on an unreleased Mac track and put his own verse on it for clout. Complex and a few other media companies tweeted about the song, it made its way onto Spotify for a few hours before being completely taken off the internet by the seems of it. Amazing what people will do to gain popularity off someones death.

I find the most information is r/macmiller, but at times it can be a bit of a love-in and circle jerk, plus I don't especially love Reddit in general.
The missus is sick of me playing/listening to him the last few months, but she did get me a framed version of 2009's lyrics in the shape of an LP for my birthday!
Yeah the Clock DJ set and releasing unheard tracks without the family knowledge is strange, as well as not being invited to the Celebration concert.
But yeah, here's hoping we get to hear some of the catalogue at some point, I'm sure there's a lot of great material.
Agree about a joint being the absolute perfect accompaniment to Delusional Thomas!
