To the uninitiated, the Overland Park-bred Mac Lethal
might come off as a smart-ass white kid who thinks he can rap because ... well, that's kind of who he is. The thing is, Mac's right. His acid-spiked soliloquies were enough to land him a record deal with Minneapolis indie-hop juggernaut Rhymesayers Entertainment. (His first RS disc, 11:11
, drops later this year.) But to Mac (David McCleary Sheldon), a brazen Kansas City loyalist, the underground's biggest name wasn't enough. His new side project, Black Clover Records, is already home to two local albums his own Love Potion Collection, Vol. 2
, a sort of album-before-the-album, and Hi, May I Help You?
, a new solo mix from Mac collaborator Joe Good.
