mac miller singing

 

Say what you want about Mac Miller, but his boldness deserves props. Mac released a new track (and music video) today, and although he’s done it before, but it was still a surprise to see Mac singing. Don’t go back, you read that correctly. The jazzy track, titled “Objects in the Mirror” was produced by Pharrell and includes live instrumentation from The Internet. I’m not pushing Mac up on a hill with the Frank Sinatras, Dean Martins, Marvin Gayes and so-on, but I appreciated the new vibe from Miller. His voice isn’t cut out for singing at all, but I still enjoyed the song; strange paradox. I’ve always found respect for Mac Miller even when I’m not completely sold on his music.

 

 

“Objects in the Mirror” is one of the cuts off Mac’s upcoming album “Watching Movies with the Sound Off” which is set to drop on the highly anticipated 18th of June. Even with Quasimoto, J. Cole and Kanye also releasing albums on that same day, I have saved enough energy to also be excited about Mac’s project. Action Bronson, Tyler the Creator, Ab-Soul, and Schoolboy Q are all featured on the album. It should be interesting. Stay tuned in to 92tilinfinity because hip-hop has a busy month coming up.

Mac Miller released the 2nd single yesterday off his upcoming album Watching Movies with the Sound Off. The new cut is called “Watching Movies” and is produced by Mac under the pseudonym Larry Fisherman. “S.D.S.” is better because of the production (Flying Lotus vs. Larry Fisherman? No-brainer). This song is alright. I’m not really a fan. However, I’m anxious for this album to drop because Pharrell produces a track on it, and Action Bronson and Tyler the Creator come on as guests. Can’t wait.

 

I’m not the biggest Mac Miller fan. Lately, I haven’t been into his music at all. I liked his KIDS and Best Day Ever mixtapes simply because they were fun, positive, enthusiastic – and as a teenager in high school, I could relate to a lot of it. As I’ve grown out of high school, and since Mac Miller has progressed in his career, I’ve lost touch with his music. I respect his hustle, his persistence with rap, and his knowledge of hip-hop, but I don’t get excited about his music like I used to. I like that he’s experimented with music – along with rapping he’s been producing, and has put out a jazz EP under the pseudonym Larry Lovestein. He’s bold, and I respect that. But in terms of rapping, he’s nothing more than mediocre.

With that said, yesterday he dropped the music video for a track he made with the production of Flying Lotus. YES. Finally something I really enjoy from Mac Miller lately. The video is strange, weird, creative, humorous, sarcastic. There’s always something you can appreciate in an artist. I’m exercising that thought. Mac Miller will always annoy me in some way, but I do respect him.
