Over the past few weeks, I’ve been low-level fascinated with the idea that Mac Miller, the goonish Pittsburgh rapper, somehow embraced his inner stoner weirdo and found a way to get good. His recent collabs with Flying Lotus, Ab-Soul, Earl Sweatshirt, Jay Electronica, and Schoolboy Q have all been varying degrees of strong, and his new album Watching Movies With The Sound Off also has appearances from Action Bronson and Tyler, The Creator, which would further support the idea that maybe this guy is worth caring about now. This Yeezus Premature Evaluation isn’t going to write itself, so I haven’t had time to test out the theory yet, but you can! Because Watching Movies With The Sound Off is now streaming at Miller’s website. Hear it here.
Watching Movies With The Sound Off is out 6/18 on Rostrum.
