Mac Miller Discography Anniversary Tribute

A Look Back On Mac Millers Awe-Inspiring, Revolutionary Discography (In Remembrance Of His Anniversary)

The late Mac Miller passed away on September 7th, 2018; abrupt, unfortunate, and remarkably touching, Mac Miller has lived on through his music. In light of remembering what a beautiful soul Mac Miller was on the anniversary of his untimely death, we will recount the Mac Miller discography from the very beginning to the last album he released. We might mention a few songs we enjoyed from each album, but you, by no means, have to listen to them. They are just some songs we love. We will be covering studio albums, but mentioning any mixtapes he released at the end.

“Blue Slide Park” (2011)

The first album on Miller’s tracklist goes back to “Blue Slide Park,” released in 2011. Before this, he released “I Love Life, Thank You,” “K.I.D.S.,” and “Best Day Ever.” After this, there were various releases in-between as well such as “Macadelic.” However, these were either categorized as mixtapes or they were free digital releases, in the days of DatPiff. This was the first official album released by Mac Miller in this discography.

The album charted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 when it dropped, “Frick Park Market,” being one of the most famous songs from the album. Received a score of 6.5/10 or 58/100 — it garnered mixed reviews. But everyone knows, this is the classic Miller album that we remember from 2011 other than the infamous “Donald Trump” song on the “Best Day Ever” album.

“Watching Movies With The Sound Off” — June 18, 2013 — Rostrum Records.

Back in 2013, “Watching Movies With The Sound Off” truly changed the way Miller was viewed. Coming from “Blue Slide Park,” we have a “psychedelic hip hop influence” album. The album featured various artists: Tyler, the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Schoolboy Q, Action Bronson, amongst many more. The album’s use of a different style from Mac Miller and the improved lyricism is what was praised. “Watching Movies With The Sound Off” is an album that depends on who you are talking to, some enjoyed it, and some critics gave it about a 7/10. This is an album that seems to land in the middle of the Miller albums as a “personal opinion.” Either you liked it, or you didn’t.

“GO:OD AM” (2015)

"GO:OD AM" -- September 18, 2015 -- REMember Music & Warner Records.
“GO:OD AM” — September 18, 2015 — REMember Music & Warner Records.

Aside from “Swimming,” “GO:OD AM” is one of our favorite albums from Miller. Each track on the album is cohesive, tells a story, and recollects about a time in his life (“100 Grandkids” for example). The rhythms on the album are perfectly harmonized with the features and it is a high album that we appreciate from Miller. Nonetheless, this album received high praise and it was a transition album from being under the influence toward becoming sober. “GO:OD AM” showcases a reformed Mac Miller and that is why this album touches and resonates with me.

“GO:OD AM” Tracklist:*

*Bolded means they are high tracks on the album. (Subjective and personal opinion tracks.)

  • “Doors”
  • Brand Name
  • “Rush Hour”
  • “Two Matches” (featuring Ab-Soul)

“The Divine Feminine” (2016)

"The Divine Feminine" -- September 16, 2016 -- REMember Music & Warner Records.
“The Divine Feminine” — September 16, 2016 — REMember Music & Warner Records.

When it came to the 2016 “The Divine Feminine,” it was a much more emotional album. It was a more gradual album that had more features than his usual releases have before. On the majority of his albums, including “Swimming,” he doesn’t have many features. This was an aspect that fans enjoyed from Miller; that he could create an album without many features, if at all. However, when you have an album such as “The Divine Feminine,” in-between “Swimming” and “GO:OD AM” it fits perfectly in the discography. (Don’t believe me? Listen to them back-to-back in order.) This album is, as stated by Miller, an album about “emotional love” and learning from the women in his life.

“The Divine Feminine” Tracklist:*

  • Congratulations” (featuring Bilal)
  • “Dang!” (featuring Anderson Paak)

“Swimming” (2018)

The latest and last release from Mac Miller was “Swimming.” One of the best albums, in my humble opinion, to date by Miller. In this album you can truly see Mac come into his form as a rapper, you can see how the hardships, ups-and-downs, and life lessons have changed him into the person he is today. Mac Miller did an NPR concert that truly shines on some of the best songs on the album. “2009” is a track that is a fan-favorite, listen to it if you want to cry.

“Swimming,” being the last album that Miller released, has the concept of “a going away album” from his fans. They perceive it to be an album that was essentially his “going away” last album of his life. It truly depends on the way you look at it. I personally don’t think he knew he was going to pass on, but I can see how it was a going away album for fans. I believe it can be a “renew” album. Shedding your past and looking forward to the future album. That is what it reminds me of.

“Swimming” Tracklist:*
