At first glance, Mac Miller seems like a strange choice to play rap’s version of El DIABLO. (Tech N9ne and Tyler, The Creator are just a couple of the more obvious names that spring to mind.) After listening to the record twice through… yeah, I’m still not getting a Satanic vibe. Regardless, those who appreciate Miller’s brand of bugged-out introspection won’t be disappointed by this freshly-released loosie. Over the pensive piano loops of alter-ego Larry Fisherman, the emcee mixes free-associative braggadocio (“My mind is Yoda, I’m on Ayatollah / These other rappers just diet soda.”) with dead-serious reflections on life, death, fame and spirituality. This deceptively complex jam isn’t attached to any forthcoming set, but Mac has promised to drop as many as four new projects in 2014. The DJBooth will, of course, keep you posted on each and every one of them.
