Let’s keep it 100%, Mac Miller has created one of the best albums of 2013 so far. Watching Movies with the Sound Off is a momentous occasion for the young MC and marks as an incredible improvement from his debut Blue Slide Park. Facing stiff competition against Kanye West and J. Cole, Mac held his own and raked in over 100,000 units in the first week of his album’s release. The concept behind Watching Movies with the Sound Off finds Mac in a reflective state of mind which truly proves where the Pittsburgh native’s natural talent lies. Stepping in as his alter-ego Larry Fisherman, Mac Miller’s production is a standout highlight (among the many) that really propel this album to the top. There’s no doubt that Watching Movies with the Sound Off is a solid body of work and with his ability to reign in some of the most wanted MC’s in the game for his second LP, it’s a no brainer that Mac’s standing in the industry is well received.
