Malcolm James McCormick is the real name of Mac Miller.
Just to add something more interesting to this annotation, I stumbled upon this when browsing the web. It is a passage which was inserted on the inside of the walls of the album (in Digipak form).
It reads (word for word);
i had a good conversation with somebody about the struggle of the sequence. this person told me, if every song has a purpose you cant question it. t decided to give this tracklist a listen without just the musical ideas, but with exact purpose for each song. not just what i say or how it sounds, but how it makes me feel. i think my songs' true meanings lie in the feeling they give me (or anybody listening.)
So here is wht happens in my album, and here is the final order. i’m not changing it. this is it. and this is why. Oh yeah, for a reason that may or may not be explained in this next novel you may decide to go and read after looking over this prologue. this whole album’s theme is birds. we will use that in every aspect. more on that later. first, enjoy… finally a method to the madness by yours truly: Malcolm James Xavier Samuel Meyers McCormick.
p.s. im faded so some word choice may need retouching or fixing. hopefully i wrote what i was thinking correctly. hmmm, funny how difficult that is… shouldn’t we all be able to write exactly how we are feeling down on paper. Is the education system to blame? save that for my political angry rap album. anyways, that paragraph was pointless. i just wanted to create more reading for u cus i am a horrible person. but actually read the next part.
