Mac Miller gets unusually introspective in his “I Am Who Am (Killin’ Time)” video.
Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller might have a taste for bizarre visuals (see: his ultra-trippy “Gees” video and his veryyy NSFW Watching Movies With The Sound Off album art), but let the record show that we have seen his softer side, most memorably wooing Ariana Grande in their bubbly “The Way” video. Now Mac’s spending time with another beautiful woman, this time in his aesthetically stunning “I Am Who Am (Killin’ Time)” video, the latest cut from the aforementioned Watching Movies With The Sound Off.
Watch Mac Miller’s “I Am Who Am (Killin’ Time)” video after the jump.
Featuring vocals from Niki Randa, “I Am Who Am” is at once restless (Mac is a famously fidgety dude) and ethereal, and its minimal visuals are a perfect match. In the Rex Arrow-directed clip, Mac sits and smokes a cigarette in a bright, mirrored room filled only with hanging lightbulbs. Meanwhile, an angelic-looking woman in a floor-length gown floats underwater in slow motion. Sometimes she’s even on dry land — staring at herself in Mac’s light bulb-filled, mirrored room, to be specific. Mac and his friend never really interact, but she does, er, end up watching TV with the lights off.
Mac’s Watching Movies With The Sound Off is available now.
