Mac Miller: "Best Day Ever" (Video)

Mac Miller is one of those rappers that I have a hard time explaining. Like, he's arguably the most popular blog rapper at the moment amongst people who don't read rap blogs (read: real people), but I can't tell what people are seeing in him that they don't see in, say, Big K.R.I.T. He's basically Asher Roth 2.0, but without the pop culture references and the one hit wonder status. I guess it's because he's willing to be so earnest, particularly in "Best Day Ever," his new single/video that features footage of Miller as a kid and some cringe-worthy stuff about being happy all the time. But even that doesn't seem right. And it's not like he's the best rapper: That line about buzzing like a hornet was pretty rough. I don't know what to think or write about this kid. What say you? 


Best Day Ever is out now.

i tried to like him last year, but i just can't. his raps are uninteresting at best, and annoying at worst. his boasts might be clever on occasion, but they are still completely unearned. from what ive seen, his fanbase is so big because most 11th graders love smoking weed and thinking that they are a better human being than their "haters." its a shame, most of his beats are pretty cool

i was half expecting him to say "billy shakespeare wrote a whole bunch of sonnets" after the hornet line

Well for one thing he's white, but the real reason he's so popular compared to, say, Big K.R.I.T. is that he builds a fan base with sayings like "Most Dope" and "Thumbs Up". And actually he's pretty good, even if it takes some time to adjust to his style.
