New Interview – Mac Miller: “I didn’t understand the genius of Eminem until I was 16”



For the latest episode of Time Alone, Mass Appeal caught up with Mac Miller.


Mac Miller has become the shining example that everyone loves to point to when it comes to independent artists winning. The Pittsburgh artist is not only one of the few artists to rap himself beyond any remarks on the color of his skin, but he’s also a highly sought after producer by his peers. His most recent project, The Divine Feminine, explores a new part of his adult life: love.


In his very personal conversation with himself, Mac discusses being a white rapper (of course), telekinesis, and how much humans suck – on a scale of 1 to 10 and also talks about Eminem:


– “Did you listen to Eminem growing up?”

– “Of course, of course, of course, of course. I think people assume that that was how I got into rap. The Marshall Mathers LP, I had some good moments with that when I was younger, but didn’t really understand the genius of Em until I was like 15, 16.”
