Mac Miller is an artist who I have been following for a very long time, and it has been absolutely fantastic seeing him progress. When I started listening to him from his The High Life mixtape (and on through his next few tapes and first album) he was really just a fun stoner rapper. Fun to play at parties, but still something you can enjoy. In 2012, he dropped Macadelic, which was a much more mature project, and he consistently increased in quality with each release from that point on. This album is a lot more different than anything Mac has ever released. This album is full of love songs, and it features Mac primarily singing on most tracks, but it is still fantastic. The guest features are perfect, and I enjoy it more with each listen.
