Mac Miller is looking to shake things up on his next album. In a recent interview with HipHopDX, the emcee discussed some potential collaborations with the folks at Top Dawg Entertainment. “TDE will be a big part of [the album],” he says. “ScHoolboy Q is on that. We have, probably, like three records that may go on there. Ab-Soul is on there, of course.”
Since releasing his debut Blue Slide Park, Miller moved from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles and made friends with the Top Dawg crew. Miller explains that his move has had a great influence on his music:
"This is how I look at it.... I'm out in L.A. right? I'm used to being from Pittsburgh and no one's there. I mean, there are people there. There's people in Pittsburgh that are doing their thing but in the grand scheme of things, Lil Wayne's not just chillin' in the 'Burgh, you know what I'm saying? So, to be out here, the people I work with are the people that will come to the crib and just smoke and listen to what I'm doing. They won't even be like, 'Yo, let's do a record.' You know what I'm sayin'? Q will come over and just listen. He'll be like, 'Yo, play that shit you did last night,' and we'll just kick it. We won't even work. That's how it works. Then, we [eventually] make music.”
There’s no word yet on just what Miller’s sophomore album will look like or will it will see the light of day.
