Mac Miller - Watching Movies With The Sound Off

Look guys, I’m sorry, and I’m not any more ready for this than you are, but we’re going to have to start taking Mac Miller seriously. On the strength of recent collabs with people like Flying Lotus, Ab-Soul, and Earl Sweatshirt, Miller, who just a couple of years ago was one of the most irritating people in rap, has stepped his game up to a scary degree and emerged as a lovably goofy and weird stoner-rapper. And on two new songs, he holds his own with two fiercely beloved underground rappers. On the loonily titled “Suplexes Inside Of Complexes And Duplexes,” Miller and the mercurial Jay Electronica do fiendish things to a dusty breakbeat. And on “Gees,” Miller and Schoolboy Q go nuts with a fizzy, beepy beat from the Cool Kids’ Chuck Inglish. Stream both tracks below.

Miller’s new album Watching Movies With The Sound Off is out 6/18 on Rostrum. I’m excited!

  1. dat mellotron doe.

  2. I’m actually baffled by how much I’m enjoying his new album. Other than Acid Rap I think this is my favourite hip hop album of the year so far.

  3. I wonder how Mac Miller’s original fans feel about his new direction. Is this gonna open their eyes to a new world of music? Or are they freaked out cause this is “weird” and not instantly gratifying?

    All I know is that I’m gonna crank up “Gees” and go hard tonight.

  4. Never really enjoyed or cared about Miller either way, and he definitely sounds better on this than his other stuff… but aint no way in hell he hangs with Jay Elec on that track. Sounds better on the second one though.

  5. His album is actually a really good piece of stoner-rap IMO.

  6. One of Mac Miller’s recent mixtapes, “Macadelic” converted me. I only heard one flow when he first came out but he has the respect of the industry being on tracks for Statik & 9th Wonder increased his exposure I think. These are both nice, I’ll have to give his album at least a listen.
