Review Summary: Surprisingly not the worst day...ever
2 of 2 thought this review was well written
Mac Miller’s second mixtape, Best Day Ever, is another giant step towards his inevitable mainstream success. What made his first mixtape, K.I.D.S., a personal favorite of mine, were the feel good beats, relaxing/soothing lyrics, and how it seemed to kick off the school year in a tremendous fashion. Best Day Ever see’s these appealing attributes taken to a new level, but ultimately stripped down for the hoards of new fans he has acquired from neighboring successful “freshman” rappers such as Wiz Khalifa. Extremely evident on tracks such as “Keep Floatin”, which features the aforementioned rapper, is Miller’s new cultural sensibility. Instead of having fun and keeping the tempo bouncing throughout the whole mixtape, this MC realizes that in order to be successful in this new scene, he needs to kick his “chill mode” into overdrive. The result isn’t too bad, but what we end up with are cringe worthy choruses like: “Got no problems/my weed lit/got nowhere to go/So we riding/we smoke til we can’t anymore/And keep floatin”. Miller has clearly blown up the scene since the release of K.I.D.S., which is undeniably a fun debut, but is now trying too hard to fit in with Khalifa and those in the same vain; who, to be honest, aren’t really good to begin with.
The highlights of this mix tape come in short, sweet, and unfortunately scarce packages. Songs like “Oy Vey”, and “Donald Trump” feature what Miller does best, with bouncing, catchy beats that are extremely addictive. And “In The Air” even has the MC finally switching up his flow, and proving yet again that he definitely could make a good album if he drops the weed-smoking high school mentality front. The production on this album is more toned down then on K.I.D.S., with each beat streamlined for the radio and not as ambitious, but yet again there are exceptions (see, “BDE Bonus”, “Oy Vey”) that offer a more varied listening experience. This is a mixtape however, and for what it’s worth, it’s a mildly entertaining one.
“In The Air”
@Narshh, the review is pretty rough around the edges, sorry kid. Probably excusable for a first review, but one easy thing you can do is make sure you proofread proofread proofread.
Unlike a lot of people here in Pittsburgh, I think Mac Miller sucks ass. 
Everyone around campus here sucks Wiz and Miller's cocks so hard. I don't really care for either, though if I had to choose one, I guess I'd settle on Wiz.
