Mac Miller and Donald Trump have been beefing for a minute now. Back in 2013, the country’s current leading Republican candidate threatened to sue the Pittsburgh native rapper for illegally using his name as a title of a song that went viral. To this day, the track’s music video has garnered over 100M views on YouTube.
Initially, Donld Trump showed love to Mac Miller in an August 2012 interview.
“A lot of people are calling me about the Mac Miller rap song. Now, it’s named ‘Donald Trump.’ Maybe you should pay me a lot of money, but it just did over 20 million people, tuning into Mac Miller. So in one way, I’m proud of him. I haven’t actually seen the language, it’s a little hard to understand on the song itself. Probably, it’s not the cleanest language you’ve ever heard, but this kid is the new Eminem. Everybody says he’s fantastic. Let’s see what it is. But the ‘Donald Trump’ song just hit over 20 million, that’s not so bad. I’m very proud of him.”
Then, Donald Trump switched sides on the subject by dissing Mac Miller in January 2013 on Twitter.
“Little @macmiller, you illegally used my name for your song ‘Donald Trump’ which now has over 75 million hits,” Little @macmiller, I want the money not the plaque you gave me! Little @macmiller, I’m now going to teach you a big boy lesson about lawsuits and finance. You ungrateful dog! Little @macmiller — I have more hair than you do and there’s a slight age difference.”
It looks like there’s still bad blood between the two.
