‘The Devine Feminine’ by Mac Miller

Listen and Review

‘The Divine Feminine’ was released on September 16, 2016 by popular rap artist Mac Miller. This is Millers fourth studio album with a run time of roughly 53 minutes.

While this album is full of love and sex, Miller claims that the album isn’t about love or romance, but about learning from women.

This is a fantastic sounding album. The overall raunchiness of the album is softened by the jazzy touch of more traditional instruments such as trumpet, tenor saxophone, and piano. This being said, this album is still incredibly explicit. The detail that Miller uses when discussing sex helps to portray the intimate nature of the album. Miller uses this intimacy to present a complex picture of himself as a man with who yearns for more love in his life. Coincidentally, Miller worked on this project with old friend and current girlfriend Ariana Grande. Grande is featured on ‘My Favorite Part’ which was released as the third single from the album on September 9, 2016. Aside from Grande, ‘The Divine Feminine’ also features work from other artists Bilal, Anderson Paak, Ty Dolla $ign, Njomza, CeeLo Green, and Kendrick Lamar.

Structurally, this is a solid album. The variations on song delivery in the album creates a very energetic and entertaining listening experience. Though this is specifically a review on the album as a whole, it is worth mentioning that this album also features a great deal of single worthy projects. Some of my personal favorites include ‘We,’ ‘Cinderella,’ and ‘Dang!’. This variety is created in the use of common hip-hop styles. This is best explained by Millers use of multiple producers, but it still makes for an entertaining album. Vocally Miller demonstrates a tremendous amount of talent. Not only does he show an adept ability to fit words to rhythmic schemes, but his singing is relatively in tune and stylistic. While Millers voice could be considered wispy I believe that it makes his performance personable.

‘The Divine Feminine’ by Mac Miller is overall a solid album. While it is not ground breaking or revolutionary, it is quality music. It serves to set the mood for Fall 2016, hopefully more great music will be coming our ways. I give ‘The Diving Feminine’ 4.4/5 generic standards.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
