10. Delusional Thomas (2013)

Delusional Thomas" Sticker by Mgeborek | Redbubble

“This might be my favorite Mac Miller project honestly. I held off on it due to the iffy initial response it got, but man is this good. It’s like a really bleak take on the Quasimoto persona. The beats sound like they’re being played off of some ramshackle cassette rig in the middle of an abandoned insane asylum. It gave me big-time Silent Hill vibes. The rapping is like Slim Shady but way more introverted, recalling some of Gravediggaz works and even a few songs by the Geto Boys and Esham. “

9. Blue Slide Park (2011)

14 Best MAC MILLER MERCH - VINYL, SHIRTS & MORE ideas | mac miller, mac  miller merch, miller

“Mac Miller has sort of been a flavor of the moment rapper. One of the first performers to really profit off of social network and make an impact in a real way. 145 thousand copies in it’s first week? Very impressive. Especially considering Mac doesn’t have a single guest spot on this LP, not even his pal Wiz Khalifa shows up to help him out. Blue Slide Park moved solely on the fact that people like Mac Miller.”

8. K.I.D.S. (Kickin’ Incredibly Dope Shit) (2010)

The Late Mac Miller's 'K.I.D.S.' Mixtape Is Coming To Streaming Services |  Hype Magazine

“With K.I.D.S you have to listen to it knowing that Mac was a young kid just looking to get some simple and jammin tunes out, that is exactly what he did here. Nikes on my Feet and Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza are my favorite tracks. Not a super impressive album but an enjoyable listen.”

7. Macadelic (2012)

Macadelic Mixtape / Mac Miller - The Question (feat. Lil Wayne) (prod.  Wally West & ID Labs) by MUSIC'1D BLOG

“Easily his best work to date, Macadelic can be described as an “introverted listening experience” (Mac’s own words), the kind of music you’d want to put on just to think by yourself or on a night road trip. The tape is a trip in itself, keeping a certain sound homogenity all throughout which results in the songs flowing effortlessly and making it a unique piece when taken as a whole.”

6. GO:OD AM (2015)

GO:OD AM by Mac Miller | Album | Listen for Free on Myspace

“Mac Miller’s evolution continues to make me smile. While I will always have a sweet spot in my heart for K.I.D.S, I’m glad he’s left that side of him behind in. The stoned out, almost cloud rap Mac Miller has really found a place for himself in the current hip-hop landscape, and GO:OD AM is another great installment in this chapter of his career.”

5. The Divine Feminine (2016)

Mac Miller - The Divine Feminine - Vinyl 2LP - 2019 - UK | HHV

“The Devine feminine is a love letter that illustrates the peak of Mac’s life (emotionally). And as a teenage boy I experience things in a similar light. The rush of a kiss or the content happiness of being with someone you have feelings for. And this album really clicks with me about expressing that. Even though it is often ranked lower than his other albums (except blue slide) to me this album means a lot and is deserving of my praise.”

4. Faces (2014)

Mac Miller - Faces Slipmat | HHV

“Faces is my favorite mixtape of all time. After years of listening and re-listening to every syllable that Mac spits on this I felt I needed to write down a couple sentences about how astounding of a project this is. Faces is the most brutally honest, extravagant and raw piece of work he ever created. From the beginning to the end this project is filled with melancholy and reflective bars and songs that have become almost therapeutic to me at times.”

3. Circles (2020)

Mac Miller ‎– Circles (CD) | Rythmos Music Store

“The melancholic vibe that this album carries throughout is certainly to be expected given the circumstances of its release, but I feel like it’s belied by a constant groove that just pulls you in. No one’s going to be dancing on tables to the songs here but I find it hard to get too depressed while listening to it. It’s more of a bittersweet sadness, a tear in my eye and a smile on my face.”

1. Swimming (2018)

Last weeks tragic, untimely passing of Mac Miller just weeks after he  released his highly anticipated new album Swimming last month, the album  arrived on the heels of his previously released tracks Small Worlds, Self  Care and Whats The Use, the final of ...

“Swimming is the result of raw emotion being expressed. It contains inspiring highs and devastating lows that really bring you along for his rollercoaster that he has experienced after his breakup with Ariana Grande. The relateability and quality of the lyrics and production come together to create a touching master piece.”
