Mack 11 (Ft. WhiteLyfe) • "OOO"
Mack 11’s new song “OOO” is more than just the replayable late summer smash we’ve been waiting to thrash through the trunk cruising up and down lakeshore drive. In fact, this catchy culmination is the result of Mack 11’s aspirations for the main stage, another stepping stone toward his own sing along with the masses. Mack’s ascent into the rap game is showing star quality work ethic. With over a hundred releases stacked up, it’s surprising to see that none of them reach back past 12 months ago. That includes three projects dropped in 2018 alone, and after scrolling his tracklist of singles featuring Valee, Hood Pablo Juan, and Zmoney, to name a few, Mack 11 begins to look more like a diamond in the rough instead of a new face in the crowd. Coming from the westside of Chicago, 24 year old Mack 11 has been taking music seriously for a about a year now. He’s fully focused on the road ahead and will stop at nothing to make his dreams a reality, “Chicago played a big role! Just living in Chicago and seeing things you will develop anything possible to make it out.”
Although Mack hasn’t been perfecting the sauce for long, it is evident that he has an adaptive ear for the music. Stretching back to his early work you can feel the essence of the westside with a little Cash Money sprinkled around it. Whereas Mack’s more recent singles featuring producers like 808 Mafia’s Cicero, SnapBack, or ZTheSavage, showcase his taste for more progressive production. It feels like Mack 11’s on verge of making a run for the national stage, and going forward his audience can, “expect more hot music and power plays trying to top charts and fulfill my goal of reaching people around the world.”

Seeing as hip hop has more competition than ever these days, what do you think artists need to focus on in order to stand out from the crowd?
I think artists should focus on themselves. Work harder than the rest, keep yourself in people’s faces, keep yourself in people’s ears.
