Incase you missed Mac Miller on MTV’s RapFix with Sway yesterday we have the video below. During the videos Mac discusses being the #1 album and takes questions from the fans. Mac also says he’s still working on 92 Til Infinity with Jazzy Jeff.
On the day his number one album “Blue Slide Park” was released, Mac Miller answered some of the burning questions you submitted to the Hot Topic facebook page.
Mac Miller sits down with Bootleg Kev in part 1 of their interview. In this interview Mac discusses going #1 on Billboard, staying independent, and much more. Look for part 2 coming soon.
In an interview with Complex Mac Miller talks about a night that he had to spend in jail earlier this year. This is the first time that he’s talked about the altercation, check out this crazy story.
This week, Mac Miller dropped his debut album, Blue Slide Park. We hear the album is on pace to sell over 100,000 copies in its first week, which is a major accomplishment for an independent artist. After also gracing the cover of Billboard this week, the 19-year-old Pittsburgh rapper is obviously blowing up.
None of this should come as a surprise. Mac has spent the last few years slowly but surely cultivating a fanbase. He’s got over a million followers on Twitter and Facebook, he’s racked up millions of views on Youtube, and he sells out shows across the nation.
But with fame and a hectic tour schedule, life can get pretty complicated. Mac found out just how complicated earlier this year—when he was arrested in upstate New York after partying a little too hard in his hotel room.
Amazingly, the story went unreported and only a few knew about the incident. That is, until we caught up with the Most Dope General and got him to spill the beans and tell the story of the worst night of his tour so far… The good news? Mac’s got fans in jail too.
Interview by Insanul Ahmed (@Incilin)
You’ve been touring a lot, and we all know on tours there’s a lot of partying going on. What is the key to a good party?
The key for me is making sure that there is always a clean exit if some shit goes down.
Have you been in tight situations at parties?
There’s definitely been situations where it’s like, this is going to go down. And I can’t go down. I’m on tour, I can’t fucking go to jail…

To let the bloggosphere tell it, Mac Miller took Asher Roth’s spot.
But, though the two White Pennsylvania-bred MCs —Asher is from Morrisville and Mac is from Pittsburgh— and former XXL Freshmen have drawn comparisons for their college-friendly fanbase, carefree content and weed-head persona, their careers appear to be headed in different directions.
Two years after Asher’s debut, Asleep in the Bread Aisle, released via SRC/Universal, failed to meet commercial expectations—selling 62, 000 in its first week—Mac’s debut, Blue Slide Park, is projected to sell roughly 100, 000 units independently in its first week. And, according to Mac, he knows exactly where the former Great White Hope went wrong.

During the Midwest leg of his Blue Slide Park Tour, Mac Miller’s journey itself was an explanation of why it was difficult to find standing room at the Columbus, Ohio stop on his long journey across the country.
“Thumbs Up” has become a movement like no other, however Mac’s wallet hasn’t always made his career decisions. When discussing his future plans as a Hip Hop artist, Mac illustrates why “Thumbs Up” is a true movement.
“It’s really up to my fans,” he said. “I feel like you have to get a grassroots and a foundation before you really jump into that major status.”
As one of the artists on the forefront of the independent movement, Mac Miller remarks on the possibility of signing a major deal, expectations of Blue Slide Park, his favorite hip-hop music and announces a collaboration possibility with Q-Tip.
HipHopDX: What should we be expecting out of Blue Slide Park?
Mac Miller: Just good music, man I don’t think fans should really expect anything. I just want them to kind of listen, you know? I think that expectations ruin albums because you expect artists to this and they do that and you expect them to do that and they do this and you go in listening expecting something and if it’s not what you expect, all of the sudden it’s not good to you. I just think that the most important thing when listening to any project, not just mine, is for people to learn to just go in with an open mind and not what they want it to be but just listen to what it is.
Mac Miller: I mean it’s going to be me. It’s going to be a little bit of everything that brought me here today plus what I feel is the next step so it’s all about growing and making music and having fun with it you know I don’t really worry about what I did before or what people want from me. I just kind of make music that I want to make.
