1. The Star Room
This song is a fascinating introduction to Mac’s sophomore album. The first 40 seconds or so provide us with intense, psychedelic anticipation for what is to come. We hear almost contorting noises being produced, perhaps symbolic of Mac erasing his old style of Weed/Backpack rap and looking to delve more into the Personal, Retrospective and Philosophical side of himself. Pitched vocals provide us with characters, as Mac shows everyone that he is through with the petty criticism, and is here to provide us with thought provoking music. Whether it be removing all thoughts that he is only about weed, his parents' relationship with one-another and himself, or Secret Societies.
Mac explained The Star Room (along with all other tracks) in an interview with Complex;
I just wanted to start the album off really honestly. And so there are two voices, and one is kind of like a sub-concious or a voice in my head, which is like a different character starting the album. Kind of at a circus type event, where there’s a person that comes out first who is really weird and creepy and everyone is like, “What the fuck is going on? Who is this little dude?” then the curtain opens and the show starts. Which is why the verse starts “But me I’m still…”
Mac also claims that it is a real place, where he and his friends encountered various sexual experiences.
