The producer says Mac was excited about unreleased music when they worked on “Guidelines,” but what he wants fans to hear the most is Maclib. “He had this Madlib album, called Maclib,” Martin told DJ Booth. He went on tell a story about his encounter with Madlib at Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago last summer.
“So I’m opening for Madlib, and about 15, 20 minutes left in my set, Madlib pulls up,” he continued. “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 Madlib decides to bless the world with that project, he should.”
Hopefully, the project ends up seeing the light of day. In the meantime, we’ll be listening to Mac’s verse on Freddie Gibbs and Madlib’s “Piñata” title track. RIP, Malcolm.
