Late Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller reportedly recorded an entire album with famed producer Madlib before his untimely passing last year.
Maclib, the reported name of the joint project, was created by the Cali-based producer and Miller sometime in 2018 and Thelonious Martin says that there is plenty of unreleased Mac Miller the fans would like to hear.
In an exclusive interview with DJ Booth, Martin says Miller was already excited about the joint project.
“When we was [sic] working on [2018 collaboration] ‘Guidelines’, he was always excited about all these other songs,” Martin recalled about Miller. “He had this Madlib album, called ‘Maclib’.
“I opened for Madlib in Chicago last summer, at Pitchfork [Festival],” Martin continued. “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.”
