Welcome To Diverse City
Label: Forefront (FRF)
"Hey Now" intros Mac's music and message: "One love, One God/It's been a long time comin' but I'm servin' up the sequel." "Catchafire" dives into funk before the LP twists through all of his studio tricks. Hip-hop infusion, George Michael bits, relentless rhythms ("Ill-M-I") and Mac's minor notes ("Stories," "Burn for You") throw it down that, overall, he's a genius.
