"RIP Mac Miller. With his death, I’m nostalgic. Being from South Jersey, the NJ and Philly music scene was a go to for me. The Wonder Years, Streetlight Manifesto, Gaslight Anthem, and of course Mac Miller to name a few. I first heard Mac’s music driving down the Garden State Parkway to high school.Blue Slide Park was the anthem of my freshman year of college. It seemed like every song from that album related to the major events in my life during that time. "Party on Fifth Ave" frat rap. "Diamonds & Gold" motivation. "Under the Weather" late nights. I feel that Mac Miller’s music evolved with me. From light-hearted albums, such as Best Day Ever and Blue Slide Park, to the more serious albums, such as Watching Movies with the Sound Off and The Divine Feminine. Mac’s masterpiece has to be Swimming. He didn’t write this album for his fans. He wrote it for himself. This is the pinnacle of his work as an artist, demonstrating his ability to express his true self through music. "2009" is my favorite off of the album, showcasing his talent as a musician with an absolutely gorgeous intro leading into a message about reflection and moving forward. After this album dropped, I couldn’t wait to see how Mac would evolve next as an artist, but now I’ll never know. Rest easy, Mac Miller."
