Mac Miller Talks About Religion, Twitter and His New Album, Which is His Best One Yet

Mac Miller will show off his newly-released Watching Movies with the Sound Off this summer on his Space Migration Tour. His sophomore album continues the musical evolution that he began with his Macadelic mixtape, providing a much more introspective and thoughtful sound than his Blue Slide Park debut.

Despite only being 21-years-old, the Pittsburgh rapper has already found a great deal of success. He was honored as a member of XXL magazine's Freshman Class of 2011. In November of that year, Miller dropped his first studio album Blue Slide Park, which debuted at number one, selling 145,000 copies in its first week.

Before arriving in Dallas to perform on Wednesday, June 26, at the Palladium Ballroom (1135 South Lamar), Mac Miller took the time to talk with us.
