Tonight’s episode of MTV’s “Hip Hop POV” (airing at midnight ET) is all things Mac Miller. Fresh off releasing his Macadelic mixtape, the zany young Pittsburgh rapper stops by the studio to talk about his upcoming projects and performs his upbeat “Loud” for the live in-studio audience. Mac discusses his forthcoming Under The Influence of Music tour, which kicks off July 26 in Cincinnati, with fellow Rostrum rapper Wiz Khalifa as well as TDE’s Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q and Taylor Gang’s Chevy Woods.
Mac shared funny stories with the show’s hosts including how he and Maybach Music Group rapper Meek Mill used to be confused for each other. “That’s my dude. It’s funny because back in the day…people would confuse us!” Mac laughs. It’s all love now and Miller is proud of the strides that Meek has made, including his just-released Dreamchasers 2 mixtape.
“Meek is killing it right now and that’s someone I really feel good seeing doing well.”
Exclusive interviews with Pharrell Williams and Kendrick Lamar also round out the weekly late-night show.
