Will we ever hear Maclib?
How much unreleased Mac Miller music is out there? Probably more than we all think.
On Wednesday (February 20th) DJBooth published an interview with Thelonious Martin. The Veteran producer spoke specifically about the legacy of Mac Miller. (Mac and Thelonious were frequent collaborators.) During the interview, Martin dropped an unexpected bomb: he revealed that, before his death, Mac Miller was working on a project with Madlib called Maclib.
Here is the full quote:
There’s plenty of it. 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 Madlibdecides to bless the world with that project, he should.
So basically Madlib just has a whole Mac Miller album in the chamber. Cool. Can we hear it?
