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…
