We’re not sure if Mac Miller is cool with this.
Just a day after the country elected Donald Trump as its next president, one of Miller’s earliest hits began surging on iTunes. And it seems like it’s being used as a victory anthem.
As pointed out by XXL, the Pittsburgh rapper’s 2011 single “Donald Trump” has returned to the iTunes charting, landing in the top 30. The cut was from Miller’s Best Day Ever mixtape, and praised the mogul-turned-politician as an aspirational figure: “Take over the world when I'm on my Donald Trump shit/Look at all this money, ain't that some shit,” Miller raps in the hook. The song’s prophetic lyrics are clearly flattering; however, Miller has expressed regret for using the Trump in the song.
"I could have said, 'Take over the world when I'm on my Bill Gates shit,’” he told Complex in 2013. “It doesn't [matter]. That shit just pisses me off."
Soon after those comments, Trump tweeted at Miller (of course) threatening him with a lawsuit (of course).
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
Since then, Miller has been very vocal about his disdain for the president-elect. He even asked his social media followers to not give the GOP candidate their votes.
Just please don't elect this motherfucker man— Mac (@MacMiller) December 16, 2015
We're sure Miller is disappointed by the election results, and this surge his "Donald Trump" track is experiencing is probably frustrating. Or, who knows, maybe Miller's fans are boosting the song to show their support for the outspoken rapper?
