Mac Miller Shares Story of Meek Mill Friendship, Confusion Over Names
Mac Miller sits down with the hosts of MTV’s “Hip Hop POV” Wednesday night (May 9) to discuss his career in addition to his hip-hop peers. One fellow rapper he makes mention of is Meek Mill, with whom he collaborated on Dreamchasers 2, the MMG signee’s latest mixtape.
During the conversation, Miller described his friendship with Meek. “That’s my dude,” the rapper shares. “It’s funny ’cause back in the day, somebody called him Mac Miller. I’m like, ‘Yo, that’s the most hilarious thing,’ because people would confuse us.”
On looks alone, it would be hard to confuse the two MCs, but the Blue Slide Park creator revealed that people would mistake their lyrical prowess. “They would think that I was Meek… You know like on the Internet,” he stated before finishing off his remarks with a laugh. “‘Cause we look alike too.”
He went on to praise the Philly native, whose first LP, Dreams and Nightmares, debuts Aug. 28. “Meek is killin’ it right now,” Miller admits. “That’s someone that I really feel good seeing doing well.”
MTV’s “Hip Hop POV” airs Wednesdays at 12AM on MTV.
