Like his past interviews with Drake (here) and Lil Wayne (here), the 42-year-old veteran interviewer came bearing gifts. First off, Nardwuar gifted Mac with an original 12 inch of Big L's 'Put It On.' The 'Best Day Ever' creator grew up listening to the Harlem rapper, even tattooing his track, 'Street Struck' on his left arm.
Nardwuar spoke with Mac Miller about his early beginnings at Pittsburgh's Shadow Lounge, where he would showcase his rapping abilities. "That's where I would perform when the crowd was 100 to 150 people, and we used to do like freestyle competitions," he said. "That's just like a lot of history for me. That's where I got my whole start."
Besides a bevy of other topics, Mac also discussed the first time he was robbed after smoking weed at a friend's house at the age of 10.
