Mac Miller Speaks On "Larry Fisherman" Moniker & Other Personas

Mac Miller speaks on his various personas, and how his music has evolved while staying consistent.

Mac Miller has his share of pseudonyms. The rapper has used the short-lived Larry Loverstein moniker, as well as the increasingly present Larry Fisherman producer name. In an interview with HardKnockTV, Mac spoke of which aspects of his personality these characters represent, and the consistencies and changes from his old music.

"I like creating these characters because I feel like the identity of Mac Miller is... to me, I don't even know who 'Mac Miller the Artist' is, like what I represent, what I stand for.' He explained. "The thing I like about these characters is I feel like I can bring all these pieces of myself and emphasize them."

"Larry Fisherman represents the part of me that's a completely nasty studio rat," Mac said of his producer tag. "In reality, I'm a pretty gross human being. I don't shower until like 9:30 PM, right before I go on stage. When I'm in the studio, I'll just go weeks straight. So that's the studio rat aspect of me."

Mac also touched on the "Larry Lovestein" character brought to life on his You EP from 2012.

"I'm also a big softy at heart," he admitted. "I think everyone always knew that. I don't think I ever really gave off the tough vibe. But there's that side of me as well. Larry Lovestein is...I've kinda have always had this random fantasy of being a seventy-year-old Lounge Jazz singer with a hairy chest that I always show to people, and a thick 'stache, because I can grow facial hair everywhere beside the mustache. Pisses me the fuck off. Why can't I grow a nice, illustrious 'stache? So Larry Lovestein is kinda that, the old-fashioned, classic Jazz singer guy."

Miller then spoke of the people's perception that his music had changed drastically from his early work, which he agreed with to some extent, but also drew some consistencies between WMWTSO and his previous projects. 

"This is the funny thing: everywhere I go, I hear people talk about this huge shift and change in music. 'Oh, you never touched on anything in your music before, and you're suddenly [doing that].' I think that the difference was that this one just had more of it." he said.

Mac concluded that perhaps he had just expanded on certain ideas he'd already touched on in the past. "All that music was always there; it just never took up the majority of the album. I think this one's a little more like that. I think I'm just getting more comfortable with the idea of an album not having all these singles that are things that lead to albums but having these pieces  in there. Which is cool."

Mac Miller is one of the best in the game... people just don't like his beat selection. When he features on other songs this shows.

@Kakashi Sensei: you want someone to end their life because Mac miller is actually decent? That makes sense..

Kakashi Sensei

@John F. Kennedy: He said "best in the game". Mac Miller may have some "decent" production but he not the best in the game.

@CJ FROM GROVE STREET: This will probably be the most ignorant thing I read this week. Which says a lot since I'm on this website daily.

@Backpack Rapper: You're wack. Only a true cracker would take pride in a term like that. You tortured and oppressed an entire race. You should be ashamed. Besides only very, very, very, very rich white people had slaves. Your poor cracker ass would've been in the fields with us.

WMWTSO was the most interesting and creative rap album that dropped this summer.

Weili
- Aug 10, 2013

@Zayn Malik: False, it wasn't even my favorite. I heard J Cole, Statik, Kanye, Wale, D-Pryde, Cudi, Hov, Ace, Tech, even Kevin Gates albums this summer. WMWTSO wasn't even my favorite out of all of those, but it had so many new ideas and styles and a trippy vibe that made it stand out.

@GCS (Alpha Troll): I'm actually doing that right now! They have a My Little Pony Friendship is Magic binder, want me to grab you one? We can be matchies!

Weili

@GCS (Alpha Troll): Haha dude, I'm not trying to be hard. I enjoy rap music and I comment my opinion on stuff on this site just like everyone else. As for D-Pryde I thought the exact same thing as you when I first heard him, but his music really grows on you and he's about to blow up.

Weili

@ICP: Suit yourself. But he's performing with some pretty huge names in Toronto at the end of this summer. He's definitely on his way. Anyways I'm tired of this thread so I'm out, y'all welcome.

@Sasuke Uchiha: You must not be a hip hop head because SOund off was some introspective conscious and also releveant lyrcial assault shit

Sasuke Uchiha

@Backpack Rapper: You obviously have been on macs dick since the wack ass K.I.D.S. days and are too far on his dick to see that the shit was corny. Lyrical assault? You seriously said mac's album was a lyrical assault? Are you retarded? I am literally asking you if you are mentally challenged.
