Mac Miller Thought The Time Was Right For Live From Space Album

When we first met Mac Miller he was a teenage rap machine whose concerns orbited around cutting school, partying and the Nikes on his feet, but the Pittsburgh prodigy has grown immensely since his 2010 break out mixtape K.I.D.S. (Kickin' Incredibly Dope Sh--). Anyone unconvinced need look no further than Live From Space, Mac's new live album which he released on Tuesday (December 17). The material for the 14-track LP was compiled from different stops on Mac's 2012 The Space Migration Tour, where he showcased music mostly from his June 18 studio album Watching Movies With the Sound Off. "I've been wanting to do a live album for a while. I think the music just happened," Mac told MTV News of the project. Hear him explain in the video above.
