This Scribble Jam Battle Champion rises from the chaos of the underground with a sharp, autobiographical LP. Preoccupied with his "Kansas City accent," the current state of hiphop and the stability of his relationships, he paints his neuroses on a background of his, DStroy's and Seven Summers' colourful beats.
Pound That Beer and Jihad! lack the crazy character cohesiveness of the randy, tongue-in-cheek Make-Out Bandit. Though Mac's Atmosphere-like vocals help his punchlines and roundhouse-kick lyricism connect, a certain je ne sais quoi is absent. Maybe he's overthought something. A cynical Mac expresses twisted thoughts like "The world is truly gruesome / but I'm far too beautiful to care about the revolution." The next one should be Uzi lethal.
