Ab-Soul praises Mac Miller, a frequent TDE collaborator via Twitter.
Ab-Soul, a member of Black Hippy along with Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock and ScHoolboy Q, recently made a Twitter post regarding his favorite rapper of the moment. According to Soul, that title belongs to Mac Miller.
“Mac Miller is my favorite rapper at the moment,” Soul said in a Twitter post today (January 12).
The post follows a ScHoolboy Q Reddit AMA, which included information about Mac Miller as well.
“Me and Mac wanna do a alternative album, but Rap keeps me tied up,” ScHoolboy Q said when asked about an artist he would do a collaborative album with.
During the AMA, Q was also asked how he and Mac became close.
“We went on tour and was smoking weed,” Q said. “He played me his new sh*t and I became a fan.”
Mac Miller has been a frequent collaborator with members of TDE. In September 2012, Miller spoke with HipHopDX about his bond with Top Dawg emcees and how this relationship came about.
“I’ve been fans of them and all their projects that came out,” Miller said in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. “Then, when we moved out here [Los Angeles], they just kind of came to the crib. [Ab-Soul] came to the crib and enjoyed himself and then [ScHoolboy] Q came through the crib so we just built a friendship. And we were just on tour with them so we were able to hang out every day.”
