Change has been an important element in Mac Miller’s evolution as an emcee. His career has faced a couple of changes since the release of his last album, 2011′s Blue Slide Park. A location change took the Pittsburgh emcee to California and a change in his philosophy has allowed him to work with artists and musical styles he may not have experimented with before. Recently, Mac Miller spoke with HipHopDX to discuss how these changes have been important for his next album, which he says is nearly done.
When Mac Miller moved from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles, a few friends came through his new place to visit. Those friends were Top Dawg Entertainment emcees Ab-Soul and ScHoolboy Q. The Mac Miller and TDE connection grew from there, allowing the emcees to become closer comrades who collaborated and toured together.
“This is how I look at it,” Miller explained. “I’m out in L.A. right? I’m used to being from Pittsburgh and no one’s there. I mean, there are people there. There’s people in Pittsburgh that are doing their thing but in the grand scheme of things, Lil Wayne’s not just chillin’ in the ‘Burgh, you know what I’m saying? So, to be out here, the people I work with are the people that will come to the crib and just smoke and listen to what I’m doing. They won’t even be like, ‘Yo, let’s do a record.’ You know what I’m sayin’? Q will come over and just listen. He’ll be like, ‘Yo, play that shit you did last night,’ and we’ll just kick it. We won’t even work. That’s how it works. Then, we [eventually] make music.”

Mac Miller and Big Sean reunite on the red carpet at the BMI Urban Awards. Plus, find out what gifts Mac plans to get Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose’s baby and why he was nervous about meeting Nicki Minaj at the VMAs.
There was no shortage of attractive women on the 2012 VMA red carpet, and if 2 Chainz had to pick his favorite, it would have to be the gold-medal-winning U.S. women’s gymnastics team. Interestingly enough, Mac Miller had his eyes on the Fierce Five as well.
“I’m looking at the girls that won the gold medal for the country. I don’t think like you guys,” 2 Chainz told MTV News of Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross, Jordyn Wieber and Alexandra Raisman.
Fitting that two of rap’s rising stars have the same taste in women. Mac walked down the carpet right after Chainz and echoed a similar sentiment. “I think I got a chance with the gold medalist chicks,” he said.

Mac Miller was all smiles, as always, when walking down the 2012 MTV VMAs yesterday (Sept. 6). “This is my first real red carpet experience. It’s kind of weird,” he joked with Billboard. “There’s a lot of celebrities around… I’m not no Zoe Saldana.”
When asked who Mac was excited to see perform he replied with two words: “Frank, man.” “I’ve been waiting to see him live and I’m just really excited to hear him sing live,” he said of Frank Ocean
Mac continued to salute Frank Ocean for speaking on his sexuality back on July 4. “I think it was the dopest shit anyone’s done this year,” Mac Miller said. “Him coming out and being gay was cool as fuck. Because it was like alright… No one’s done that shit before. That’s like risky as hell. And I’m sure there’s a lot of people who could, but he made the illest music and then said that and people were like, ‘Okay. Whatever. It doesn’t matter.”
“I am just curious as if he would have came out like that from the start, what would it be like. But I’m glad it happened. I think it was dope. That was legendary,” he shared.
As he embarks on ‘The Macadelic Tour,’ Mac is lacing his “Blue Slide Park” follow-up and his collaborative EP, “Pink Slime,” with Pharrell Williams.
“Pharrell is an incredibly talented human being. It’s always been a dream of mine to work with him,” he said. “He was down to do a project. We’ve just been working and taking time and making it perfect… He does every beat, he’s on a lot of the records. Some of then are just me. He wants me to shine. He wants people to leave this and be like, ‘Yo Mac Miller is the shit.’”
As for when you can get your hands on “Pink Slime”? “I’m hoping this Fall. I think it’d be dope. I don’t exactly know. I got to go there and do the last chapter with him and put the finishes touches,” Mac said.
