Is Hip-Hop crooner a thing? I feel like Mac made it a thing. He's been moving away from the frat rap for quite awhile so fans won't be surprised on the direction but what people will notice is how delicate and sparse the sound is. Not only compared to his own body of work but compared to most of the sonic-zeitgeist. Lyrically he seams at peace with his struggles but not defeated. It's actually a really beautiful, open and raw album.
