Mac is Back. Pittsburgh emcee Mac Miller's third studio album "GO:OD AM" has been out for about a month, so it's about time we give it what it deserves. Mac is here to prove that he is at the top of his game, in a good place mentally, and is ready to take on the world once again. What do we think of the album? well ... remember Kendrick's "Control" verse where he called out the rappers he felt were the biggest threats in the game? Let's just say he knew what he was talking about when he included Mac in that call out list.
[Interview] Mac Miller talks “Watching Movies With The Sound Off,” producing music, and goals for the future
Interview by: Martin Bauman There seems to be no such thing as a day off for Mac Miller. This year alone, the Pittsburgh, PA native has released four projects (Run-On Sentences: Vol. 1 and Stolen Youth as Larry Fisherman; his second studio album, Watching Movies With The Sound Off; and now a self-titled mixtape under the moniker Delusional Thomas). Add that to his extensive tour schedule (with stops in Canada this week) and the demand of a reality show on MTV, and there's not much time for slowing down. It would be easy to think that such a busy schedule would compromise an artist's music, but lately, Mac's been making the best music of his life; it's no small accomplishment that WMWTSO holds its own in a conversation about the best hip-hop album of the year, nor should it be overlooked that Mac's name came up in Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse, putting him in the same sentence as the rest of hip-hop's current elite. Suffice it to say, he's doing something right - and yet, if you ask him, he's not even close to the level he's aspiring to. We caught up with Mac Miller at his home in Los Angeles to talk about Watching Movies With The Sound Off, why Flying Lotus told him he's at the greatest stage in his producing career, his goals for the future, and much more.
