Mac Miller sadly passed away back in 2018, but it seems that his legacy will still live on, as news has come out that the rapper reportedly recorded a ‘secret album’ just before he died.
According to Chicago producer Thelonious Martin, Mac Miller, real name Malcolm James McCormick, worked on a collaborative album with producer and rapper Madlib before he passed away.
Martin told DJ Booth: “When we was working on ‘Guidelines,’ he was always excited about all these other songs. He had this Madlib album, called Maclib.
“I opened for Madlib in Chicago last summer, at Pitchfork. So I’m opening for Madlib, and about 15, 20 minutes left in my set, Madlib pulls up. Pete Rock walks up as well.
“So I’m trying to focus and DJ, and Madlib gets on and 15 minutes into his set he just randomly plays a Mac Miller joint.
“And I turn to him, I’m like, ‘There’s more of these, right?’ He’s said, ‘Oh, yeah, there’s a whole album. Maclib.’ What! What! He just kept moving on with his DJ set. If Madlib decides to bless the world with that project, he should.”
American bass guitarist Thundercat, who was friends with Miller, has also confirmed the legitimacy of a secret album on social media saying: “I was there when he recorded it. Blew my f*cking mind.”
