Pennsylvania artists of east and west unite, as a legendary DMC champion teams with the DXnext alum born six years after he won the title.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania emcee Mac Miller revealed that he's at work with a turntablist in DJ Jazzy Jeff. The DXnext alum spoke to TheWellVersed.com last week, indicating that he and the longtime musical partner of The Fresh Prince (a/k/a Will Smith) have a mixtape in the works.
“[It is] straight Hip Hop stuff that’ll be coming out in the summer,” Miller said. The Rostrum Records artist has worked with respected Hip Hop artists such as Statik Selektah and Consequence previously. Though still in his teens, Mac wants to connect his fans with artists who have pioneered and preserved the culture. "I’m excited because this younger generation—I want to give them that. I want them to know who Jazzy Jeff is, who DJ Premier is.”
In recent years, Jazzy Jeff has done mixtapes with the likes of Phil Nash, Mick Boogie (Summertime) and Skillz (Infamous Quotes).
