Well, Mac Miller has had the artwork as his Twitter avi for long enough. The man hellbent on continuing to prove his artistic merits offers what might be his most fascinating project yet in Delusional Thomas, which is technically self-titled. Yup, another moniker. The entire tape is produced by Mac’s beat maker alias Larry Fisherman, and the raps are largely helmed by this novel persona. Akin to Eminem’s evil twin Slim Shady, everything about this project is very dark, very haunting and impossibly captivating.
Mac Miller “features” on his own release in his normal voice, while Earl Sweatshirt shows up for an impressive verse along with Da$h. There’s a lot of material to be unpacked and examined here, as the Pittsburgh kid has created something that appears to be a real psychological trip.
Stream Thomas below, and let us know what you think of yet another left turn taken by Mac to explore his aesthetic limits to the fullest. [via]
