Well, this isn't too surprising. Earlier this week, Mac Miller covered Complex's "Man of Next Year" week and one of the features was a video of Mac driving around in his new Fisker along with Marc Ecko. The two got to talking about one of his most well-known songs, "Donald Trump," which sparked conversation about the real Mr. Trump:
"I think he's a dick," Mac says in the video.
"I fucking hate Donald Trump," Ecko adds.
"When he started running for president I was like, 'Oh, fuck—this is horrible, I have a fucking song with this dude's name and now he's being such a douchebag.'" Mac says.
The song Mac's referring to is his single "Donald Trump," which he released in 2011. After the song scored over several million views on YouTube, Trump sent out a personal video endorsing the song—and calling Mac the "next Eminem."
"The thing that bothers me the most is that he always says things like, '75 million views on the song 'Donald Trump,' Mac Miller you're welcome," says Mac, in the video. "I could have said, 'Take over the world when I'm on my Bill Gates shit.' It doesn't [matter]. That shit just pisses me off." Looks like Mr. Trump isn't too happy about Mac's comment—and is threatening to teach him a "big boy lesson." A big boy lesson? Sigh. Here's the set of tweets that Trump sent out earlier today:
Little @macmiller, you illegally used my name for your song “Donald Trump” which now has over 75 million hits.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 31, 2013
Little @macmiller, I want the money not the plaque you gave me!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 31, 2013
Little @macmiller, I’m now going to teach you a big boy lesson about lawsuits and finance. You ungrateful dog!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 31, 2013
From President Obama to Mac Miller—who's next, Mr. Trump?
Meanwhile, Mac recently settled a lawsuit with Lord Finesse who claimed Mac launched his career by flipping the beat to Finesse's 1995 song "Hip 2 Da Game" for his viral hit "Kool-Aid and Frozen Pizza."

UPDATE: Donald Trump is now retweeting comments Mac Miller made last year and commenting on Mac's hair. Interesting.
Little @macmiller—I have more hair than you do and there’s a slight age difference.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 31, 2013
