Mac Miller has been making his own way in hip-hop and says that he didn’t need Drake’s help to do it. Mac’s recent mixtape, “Faces,” has people wondering, just what did the artist mean with his comment about Drake? Was he trying to diss the Canadian rapper?
Mac Miller: Why I Dissed Drake On ‘Faces’ Mixtape
In a podcast interview with Billboard Senior Editor Erika Ramierz, Mac went on to explain the apparent diss, “I’m a huge Drake fan — it was less about the actual Drake features — at the end of the day,” Mac said. “I by no means have done it by myself, I have great people around me at all times. It’s just dope to kind of be where I’m at and be the head of my whole thing.”
The entire song seems to be about Mac and how far he’s come in his career. Mac also goes in on the track saying, “I’m the greatest, admit that I’m the greatest, If I’m not on your top ten — then you a racist.”

Outside of going up against other rappers, Mac’s also been battling addiction. The rapper is currently 15 days sober and has been focusing on using mediation to help kick his habits.
“I actually just got sober — no weed. I’ve been completely sober for 15 days so I can do transcendental meditation.” The rapper went on to say, “I’m out here getting spiritual.”
Well we hope Mac can stay sober and healthy, because he does have a lot of talent and hopefully he can continue to be successful.
What do you think HollywoodLifers, is Mac calling out Drake or just trying to prove himself?
