Mac Lethal 11:11
- Words: David Ma
- Label: Rhymesayers
- XLR8R Rating: 6/10
On 11:11, his official debut album, Kansas City’s Mac Lethal comes out swinging, bringing some clever lyrics, humor by the boatload, and a strong mic presence. Unfortunately, he has a tendency for lacing otherwise good songs with terrible hooks (“Pound that beer!”) and corny one-liners (“My tear ducts are dry”). Tracks like “Crazy” and “Rotten Apple Pie” are fun, but quickly become expendable after a couple listens. The closing track, “Sun Storm,” is the highpoint, and shows that with the right beat and concept, Mac can hold your attention. With that said, his songwriting setbacks make his debut a bit disappointing.
