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.”
