Mac Miller Explains Reasons For Not Collaborating With Wiz Khalifa

The up-and-comer explains that even though they haven't collaborated much in the past, they'll join forces in the future.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania rapper Mac Miller is gearing up to drop his label backed debut Blue Slide Park after releasing several mixtapes in the past few years, and he’s determined to blow up on his own merits. 

During an interview with BET, the 19-year-old explained why he hasn’t released any recent collaborations with Rostrum Records labelmate Wiz Khalifa. “We have one from awhile ago, but we don’t want to start doing stuff like that until I’ve got to a place where it makes sense,” he explained. “I would hate to look back at my career, I would hate to even be sitting on top of the game and be killing everything and selling millions and millions of record and feeling like I didn’t really do it.

“Not to say that Wiz and I aren’t gonna make any music in the future, because we’ll obviously make good music together but that’s not really our main focus,” he continued. “People are gonna talk and say ‘Oh Wiz is popping, so now all of a sudden Mac’s popping.’ And it really means a lot to me that people understand that I’m trying to do Mac Miller.”

    good for mac miller , dont be a dickrider do your own thang . he dont need wiz khalifa to make a dope album . i hate when rappers try to get all the big name people on there albums .

  • Chris Newberry

    Man, dude is decent, and he is making it off the strength of his own merit. You gotta respect it. He doesn't sound like anyone else out there, he isn't dickriding anyone, he is just doing him, which is than I can say about another so called hardcore rapper whose next album is gonna be named 50cent's tax write off. THat guy is flat out wack, but he won't catch alf the flackthiskid i catching because he is riding the g-unit ship that is slowly sinking. I give this kid props. Quit frontin on the due, you wanna hear hardcore shit then stop listening to everything he put out so that you can diss it, and go find some old onyx or something

  • BrownJack

    Y'all is hardcore hating on someone who doesn't even bother anybody. It's like being mad at a bowl of ice cream. Okay he sounds pretty soft, and probably is, but that shit sounds kind of dope to me when I'm blowed. You ain't gotta be mad ALL the time.

    Mac Miller & Wiz Khalifa are both below average rappers that take advantage of the fact that the average listener is ignorant when it comes to real hip hop, they both capitalize on pop trends but it's all about artist integrity of sticking true to yourself which obviously they don't, they both sound like shit and their subject matter is very limited to cash, clothes, drugs.

  • distant

    maybe it's because i listen to brotha lynch but., this dude just sounds soft. Wiz does too tho so they should just collab.

  • Gooch Burr Burr

    What do you DX fags get from showing hate. You actually think you can stop people from supporting Mac Miller? Do you even think your opinion matters? It doesn't. I don't see females hate as much as you fags hate.

  • Daniel Gregory

    You HATERS are a bunch of dweebs!! Yes I said it!! Deal with it!! And for those saying that hall the sequal was better UR soooo wrong! I can actually understand EVERYTHING Mac is saying!! He doesn't rap overkillingly FAST and he doesn't use those stupid subliminal, complex, metaphor, dictionary, crossword puzzle rap that confuses the listeners. Mac miller raps at a comfortable pass and I can understand what he's saying without having to look at the stupid booklet for clues.

      Interests: Gossip Girl? Lady Gaga? Lady Antebellum? movies: Justin Bieber? Britteny Spears? Games: Barbie Fashion Show?????? What kind of homo shit are you on? Obviously you're autistic spazzmo, so it kind of makes sense that MCs with technical lyrics are difficult for you to grasp. I feel sorry for these kids, I really do. They're very confused about their sexuality and gender.
