19. Mac Miller, 'Watching Movies With the Sound Off'
Mac Miller surprised critics and fans alike with his experimental Album Two. The plucky Pittsburgh MC culled influences from everyone from Flying Lotus to Schoolboy Q, while showcasing his own brand of dusty, space-funk-influenced production. He stepped his bars up too, sneaking in inventive flows and bugged-out imagery on stoned meditations like "S.D.S" and "Watching Movies."
