In addition to discussing his collaborative EP with Pharrell Pink Slime, future projects and working with DJ Jazzy Jeff (watch here), the young rap phenomenon known as Mac Miller also took us on a journey into his rhymebook to pick out his personal highlights from back catalog for SoulCulture TV’s My Favourite Verse series.
The Rostrum Records signed Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania representative reveals that his favourite self-penned verses to date are taken from his 2009 release “On Some Real Shit” for ‘sentimental reasons’ (he also reveals what substance he tried for the first time when he wrote the song) and more recently his verse from the Lil Wayne featuring “The Question” taken from his latest mixtape release Macadelic.
“The Question is very dope to me because it’s simple yet profound, and I think that’s something very important to do. Because you know you can do a lot of stuff like cadences and wild shit like that and crazy rhymes and bars and concept rhyming and wordplay and stuff. But with that I kinda step back and just only said a few words, but the words I said were profound and meant something” – Mac Miller.
