In what appears to be becoming a bit of a trend in Hip-Hop and R&B, Mac Miller today made his album available to stream for free on NPR, ahead of the album’s official release on Friday.
We were incredibly excited at TrueToo for this release, helped in no small part by Mac’s own hyping of the album. Consequently, we went into this album expecting something big. We got it.
GO:OD AM is a remarkably coherent, polished effort from Mac. Backed by sumptuous production on every single track, Mac slays on all of his performances and brings the best out of his features. (trust us on this, he even made Chief Keef sound, well, human?) It bellows maturity and self-awareness, characteristics rare in a 23-year old.
We’re going to take another few listens to fully digest this thing, but in the meantime you can check it out for yourself. Click here to listen to the NPR stream and stayed tuned for our official review in the coming days.
