18. Mac Miller, Macadellic
Label: Rostrum Records
Released: March 23th
The fourth mixtape from the Pittsburgh MC has a much darker, trippier feel than the spritely sounds of his previous offerings. Over extensive production from ID Labs, as well as contributions from Clams Casino and Sir Michael Rocks, among others, Mac Miller's musings mirror his rising fame. Miller spends time speaking on the usual topics-as partying and drugs coincide with his excellent wordplay (“Sunday I'm going golfing with my Callaways/Watching football, word to Joey Galloway”).
But he also spends much of his time speaking about women and the complicated relationship between opposite sexes on eloquent songs like “The Morning After” and “Angels (When She Shuts Her Eyes)." With guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Lil' Wayne and Casey Veggies, Macadelic's eerie feel makes for a twisted ride through the mind of Mac Miller.
