It makes sense. Music as much fun as Miller’s was made for Saturday nights. The Jewish hip-hop phenom has risen alongside fellow Pennsylvanian Wiz Khalifa to put his city on the rap map. His sing-song, melodic style strongly evokes the humour and wordplay of the Daisy Age, when artists like De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest ruled the scene.

It’s perhaps a strange notion, as Miller is just 21 years old, and was born when those artists were at their peak. But his love for the era is deep and abiding. He titled a mixtape hosted by DJ Jazzy Jeff - ‘92 til Infinity’ - in reference to West Coast greats Souls of Mischief, and has linked up with other 90s icons like Bun B and Talib Kweli.

This isn’t just a history show, though. Miller is a talented multi-instrumentalist, and collaborates with cutting edge producers like 9th Wonder and Clams Casino to create a full, snapping modern sound. His debut album Blue Slide Park produced the hits ‘Frick Park Market’ and ‘Smile Back’, each with well over 20,000,000 views on YouTube. They helped propel the album to number one on the Billboard charts - stunningly, it was the first time an independently distributed debut had achieved the feat since 1995.

Critics also noted his bravery in one area in particular. The album eschewed the modern obsession with guest appearances, and featured Miller rapping alone for its length. That sense of iconoclasm, of being willing to buck trends (or make his own), is a large part of his appeal - one that has seen him compared to fellow modern hip hop mavericks like Odd Future or A$AP Rocky.

Miller was just named Complex magazine’s ‘Man of Next Year’ for 2012, and is on the verge of releasing a star-studded follow up to Blue Slide Park entitled Watching Movies With the Sound Off. It is, therefore, a perfect time to catch this rising rap phenom’s acclaimed live show while his star is in the ascendant.

And, thanks to his schedule change, you can now do it on the best night of the week.
