Ab-Soul, a member of Black Hippy along with Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock and ScHoolboy Q, recently made a Twitter post regarding his favorite rapper of the moment. According to Soul, that title belongs to Mac Miller.
“Mac Miller is my favorite rapper at the moment,” Soul said in a Twitter post today (January 12).
The post follows a ScHoolboy Q Reddit AMA, which included information about Mac Miller as well.
“Me and Mac wanna do a alternative album, but Rap keeps me tied up,” ScHoolboy Q said when asked about an artist he would do a collaborative album with.
During the AMA, Q was also asked how he and Mac became close.
“We went on tour and was smoking weed,” Q said. “He played me his new shit and I became a fan.”
Mac Miller has been a frequent collaborator with members of TDE. In September 2012, Miller spoke with HipHopDX about his bond with Top Dawg emcees and how this relationship came about.

A few tracks from the Cook Out followed, before he did the Yonkers freestyle and another off the top of his head. Then Schoolboy Q and Kendrick Lamar did there thing.
