Does Madlib have a Maclib (Mac Miller) album in the vault? According to this XXL report, he just may.
Since the untimely death of Mac Miller in September 2018, many fans have wondered about how much music he left behind. Now, it’s looking like he might have a lot of left over material, and a sizable chunk of those tracks could be on an unreleased LP he reportedly recorded with producer Madlib.
“When we was working on ‘Guidelines,’ he was always excited about all these other songs. He had this Madlib album, called Maclib,” he revealed today (Feb. 20). “I opened for Madlib in Chicago last summer, at Pitchfork. So I’m opening for Madlib, and about 15, 20 minutes left in my set, Madlib pulls up. Pete Rock walks up as well.”
Martin continued, “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,” he continued. “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.”
