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.
[Podcast] Mac Miller talks his friendship with Earl Sweatshirt, the meaning of life, and his quest to become iconic
Today we're excited to bring you the second instalment of The Come Up Show Podcast. As promised, every two weeks we'll be dropping a new podcast with one of your favourite hip-hop artists. We began the series with Shad. This time, we chop it up with the ever-maturing, newly-surprising -- and among hip-hop fans, often-polarizing -- Mac Miller. We talk about his friendship with Earl Sweatshirt, the meaning of life, his quest to become iconic, and plenty more in the podcast. Read the full breakdown after the jump and listen to the interview below (note: you can also read it here). Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes: https://bit.ly/TCUSiTunes
[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. Read the full interview after the jump.
Mac Miller released visuals for "I Am Who I Am (Killin' Time)" yesterday. This is the newest video from Watching Movies With The Sound Off and the video for this is fantastic just like everything else we've seen from Mac this year. This track is a prime example of Mac Miller growing as an artist and as a person. The video reflects the track well with Mac Miller almost appearing to be in a meditative state. The lyrics are are revealing, introspective and Mac gives us his perspective on his career and life. Check out the video below!
With a number of great albums that hit the stores on June 18th and shortly after like Magna Carta Holy Grail, Born Sinner, Yeezus and The Gifted, the hype surrounding them would almost seem like it's geared towards a select few albums, though that totally isn't the case. Among those releases was Mac Miller's Watching Movies With The Sound Off and after pondering the question "Is Mac Miller Being Slept On?", Elliot Wilson decides to sit down with one of Mac's best friends and co-manager's Q to talk about just that. Discussing everything from Mac finding his own sound, to other album's that came out around the same time as well as Watching Movies With The Sound Off and more. It certainly makes you think and wonder the exact same question. You quickly realize he dropped an album at the same time as some very prominent artists, so I don't Mac is being slept on at all. Check out the video below to see just why that is.
