REVIEW: Mac Miller ‘The Divine Feminine’ ⋆⋆⋆⋆

Mac Miller’s latest album is an ode to love and lust. The album opens with the laughter of the rapper’s current girlfriend and closes with his grandmother telling her love story.

With its nouveau funk-jazz beats and psychedelic hints, it hits the right spot. Its a truly experimental offering from the 24 year old rapper, who hails from Pittsburg. This is his fourth studio album and it’s arguably his most cohesive. The artists who feature: Andersoon .Paak, Kendrick Lamar and his girlfriend Ariana Grande, add exciting layers and textures to an already intriguing record. The rapper seems to be toying with love as a more open concept and as such, he explores distance, longing and fascination with the female body.

Some lines are delivered with such earnestness and fervour, you can feel the intention behind the music; ‘I just open up your legs and go straight for your heart’ in Skin.

All of this makes this an engaging work, that lulls you in and out of itself. Essentially taking you on a trance like journey.

Notable Tracks:

  • ‘Dang’ ft. Andersoon .Paak
  • ‘Stay’
  • ‘Planet God Damn’ ft. Njomza
