His last project was his most mature...

Although I know the majority of this forum aren't hip hop heads I am. With the recent passing of Mac Miller I wanted to post a link to his recent release Swimming.

I did buy his first album release that was not well reviewed years ago but some of it was hard to listen to due to the "Frat rap" style. His new record is very well put together and easily one of my favorite releases this year. Wanted to post here just because as a forum member that is my given right and someone has to represent a genre of music here.




RIP Mac

    I have some friends who listen to him, I've heard him once or twice, and even though it's not the genre of music I like, I can appreciate his talent.
    RIP.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    It's crazy thinking I was the same age as him and remembered blasting his CD when I got my first aftermarket stereo in my car. He was a workaholic from what I knew about him, always making music even if it never got released.

    I was big into hip hop from 98-03. Pretty much lost touch since then, but actually found this guy a couple years ago and listened to his stuff a fair amount. Really liked his style and vibe.
