I heard that you were really against your first project, But My Mackin’ Ain’t Easy, ever seeing the light of day. Is that true?
The But My Mackin’ Ain’t Easy that’s on the Internet isn’t the real one. I love [the original one] now. It’s actually crazy ill. I’ve played it for people that have been at my house and a couple writers. I was just on some real gutter gangsta shit. I wanted to be Big L so I was talking about murdering people and being at crack spots. It was just fictional stuff. I’ve never murdered anyone... I’ve been around some crack spots though. I was 15-years-old, I was tight for a 15-year-old.
One artist in your camp that I wanted to talk about, and I’m hoping it’s not one of the sons you say you don’t like, is Beedie. What’s going on with him? I haven’t heard anything from him for a while.
We were a duo back in the day but we were always our own solo acts. We just used to rap together because it’s [unnerving] to be one white guy on stage. I’ve given him verses and we worked together last time I was in Pittsburgh.
What I want for him, as a friend and as someone knows how good he is, is for him to be able to get his shine on as a separate thing. I have my whole thing here and I built it. I don’t want him to be in my shadow. I want him to build his own career and have his own fan base. I want his fans to hate me. I don’t want him to have fans who are like, “Yo! You used to work with Mac Miller so I like you.” Fuck that! He should have fans that ride for him.
Speaking of newcomers, do you have a relationship with Logic? He shouted you out on “All I Do” and it wasn’t very clear as to why.
Yeah, you haven’t heard it?
No. He’s cool. He can rap. He can really rap. I fuck with Logic. He’s really cool. Like I said, you can’t argue with someone who can rap and he can definitely do that. He’s killing it right now. But that’s what I’m saying, it’s dope to be in that position. When I made a joke about a bunch of sons I don’t like I wasn’t talking about him. I was talking about... other people. It’s dope that I’m at a stage in my life where I could’ve influenced somebody.
Something I always wanted to ask you, did you ever manage to put an idea together for that space porno you and Snoop Dogg were talking about on his GGN show?
Not even on no weird shit, I really wanna get in to the porn business. I do.
There’s a lot of money in it...
Not even for the money, for the artistic integrity. I wanna make awesome porn. I wanna make great pornos. I have this one idea for a bank robbery porno because with bank robbery movies you can always put twists in. You can put some good acting in it. Just think of all the possible sex scenes you could have in a bank robbery movie. You got two hostages. A gunman and two hostages. There’s the fucking police and the interrogator who comes in like, “I’m coming in unarmed.” He takes his pants off and then they fuck.
With that said, you have your own show on MTV, Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family, and you were in the latest Scary Movie. Is acting the direction you’re thinking about taking?
I don’t know. I would but I kinda suck at it. I was really bad in Scary Movie 5. So I went to see Scary Movie 5in Trenton, New Jersey. Trenton is fucking hood as fuck. On the door of the movie theatre it has a sign that says no guns in the theatre.
So I went there to see the movie. I’m sat there in the back with my hood up watching the movie and my part comes on. I wanted to see what [the audience] thought and they were laughing so I was like, “Yes!I did it. They’re laughing at me.” And the same thing for the show. I thought the show was gonna suck, and all the homies came over to watch it and everyone was cracking up. So maybe. I wanna do...
I don’t wanna do porn, I wanna direct porn. I wanna make movies. I love movies, obviously, but I wanna make movies and I’ll do it. I just want it to be right. I wanna do a really serious role. I got offered this really serious role that I’m thinking about right now, but I can’t talk about it because I don’t even know if they’ve announced the movie, but it’s like a cult classic.
Can I see you in a serious role, that’s the thing...
That’s what I’m saying! I could do it. I am goofy but I do have emotions and feelings as well. I could do it, it’s just if I want to.
