11:11 is a studio album by American rapper Mac Lethal. It was released on Rhymesayers Entertainment on October 9, 2007.[6]

Critical reception[edit]

The album was described by AllMusic as "a clever, conversational rap record fueled by snarky humor and stoner cynicism."[11] Meka Udoh of HipHopDX said, "Mac Lethal packs the album full of witty one-liners, self-deprecating humor and - as is the norm around the Rhymesayers clique - some socio-political commentary."[4]
