Kill Your Time With Mac

Rapper Mac Miller has dropped his newest music video, for “I Am Who Am (Killin’ Time)” featuring Niki Randa — and though he rose to fame as a “frat rapper,” Miller takes an introspective turn in the latest single off his sophomore album Watching Movies With The Sound Off, opting for a more serious tone than the party anthems for which he’s best known.

The clip provides a relatively simple visual to accompany the track, with shots of Miller smoking a cigarette in a room filled with lights hanging from the ceiling, intertwined with footage of a woman in a white dress swimming in a pool of water and dancing in a room of mirrors. It’s minimal, but effective, complementing the track’s ethereal production.

No jokes are to be had here: Miller totes a handful of self-reflective lyrics like “Life’s so precious, Lord knows that life is so precious / Fight to the death, til’ there’s nobody left / You’re holding your breath because you might get infected / I’m animalistic, instinctively thinking I’m getting ballistic.”

  1. Mac Miller is really killing it right now and working with some great artists. His mix-tape with Vince Staples was great and he’s working with Earl Sweatshirt as well. Earl’s new video for “Hive” is pretty crazy too!http://smarturl.it/EarlHive
