Realist Livin (Prod. By The Renegades)
Fresh off of an impressive #1 independent debut – the first since Tha Dogg Pound did it in 1995 – Mac Miller is reveling in his decision to keep it indie. “It’s crazy. I’ve been trying to take it all in,” said Miller in an interview with MTV. “I’ve just been in constant motion, so I haven’t gotten a chance to really stop and realize how crazy this is that we got the first #1 in 16 years. It’s nuts, man.”
“I never really got far enough to see an offer for real,” said Mac, clarifying his stance on majors. “I got no hatred towards major labels or anything. I never got a chance to hear what they had to say. We just really wanted to stick with our home team and keep it in the family.”
Mac Miller’s Blue Slide Park moved an impressive 144,000 units in its first week.
“The fact that I got a #1 album on my first try independently is just something that no one could ever take away from me,” he added.
