Mac Miller Says He’d Rather Rap Over His Own Beats

Posted By on June 25, 2013

Mac Miller recently sat down with Rise 24,  in which he touched on a slew of topics, most interestingly rapping over his own beats vs. other producers.

When asked, Mac had this to say :

Yeah, I say yeah and Just is the homie, bruh. I have love for Just [Blaze] forever,” Miller told Rise 24 when asked if he gets more excited to rap over his own tracks. “Just Blaze is a real friend, which is crazy, but he looked out for me early. ‘Best Day Ever?’ That’s my second popular mixtape and he gave me a beat for a mixtape? Crazy. But I’m not gonna lie. I’d tell him to his face that I would be more excited to rap over my own beat.” 

Mac went on to discuss the features on his new album, more specifically a loaded Lux feature, in which the MC “disses” Mac:

“I’ve always been an easy target for people to talk shit on. So, my whole thing was like, have the best shit-talker talk shit on me on my album. I thought that would be tight but it worked out perfectly. I just reached out like, ‘Could I get an a capella of you dissing me for my album?’ He was like, ‘Hell yeah.’ That’s tight. He was with it completely. So he dropped that and it ended up being perfect with the vibe of the album, the ‘Who the fuck is Mac Miller?’ part just works perfectly. That was crazy because he hadn’t heard anything off the album. He didn’t know anything about the album but for some reason, he just fit perfectly.”
