Mac Miller recorded a whole album with Madlib before his death

Before his tragic death, Mac Miller reportedly recorded a full collaboration album with producer Madlib.

The late rapper worked with the hip-hop producer last year, and Thelonious Martin claims that the pair went on to record an entire album together.

In an interview with DJ Booth, Martin said: “When we was [sic] working on [2018 collaboration] ‘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 [Festival],” Martin went on. “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 Madlib decides to bless the world with that project, he should.”

Miller’s last album, 2018’s Swimming, was released on the 3rd of August – just over a month before he was found dead at his home in California at the age of 26.

Earlier this month, a poignant mural of the late Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller has appeared in Brooklyn, New York.

The late rapper was remembered days later by his ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande who appeared to tackle to death in her haunting new track, ‘ghostin’, taken from the pop powerhouse’s second album in six months, thank u, next.
