Q's project will undoubtedly be fire, but will it surpass K. Dot's magnum opus?
In the final instalment of Hardknock TV's recent interview with Mac Miller, the rapper shared his thoughts on ScHoolboy Q's upcoming album Oxymoron, which he feels is the best TDE album to date, period. Or does he?
"It's better than Kendrick's album," Miller said. "My opinion doesn't fucking matter. Q's album is crazy. It's just filled with so much. I don't know, man. I think that Q made a better album than Kendrick... [but] there is no such thing as a better album at the end of the day. They probably both are different. But I just wanted to say [that] because it creates more hype for [my] homie's album. But I really believe that. Or do I? Or am I just saying it? Do I believe anything I say? What is life?"
In the past year, the TDE and Most Dope camps have become close friends and collaborators, something Mac elaborated on during the interview.
"This is how I look at it," he said. "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."
Mac's opinion on Q's album comes shortly after Kendrick called him and many other emcees out on Big Sean's already infamous "Control".
I'm usually homeboys with the same niggas I'm rhymin' with
But this is hip-hop and them niggas should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale
Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all but I'm tryna murder you niggas
Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas
They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas
Mac responded simply, via Twitter:
If I can't do no more nouns or verbs ima start comin with the wildest adjective bars that anyone has ever heard.— Mac. (@MacMiller) August 13, 2013
