Mac Miller Gives His Take On Eminem, Yelawolf & Use Of The N-Word

Mac Miller speaks on Eminem and his Shady Records signee Yelawolf, as well as one of Hip Hop's most oft-used controversial words.

Between V-Nasty, DJ Khaled, and Common, the N-word has been a frequent topic of discussion especially in the past year. 

In a recent interview with, Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller opened up about fellow white emcees Eminem and Yelawolf, and white emcees' use of the N-word in general.

"...Eminem and Yela have a funny sense of humor together," said Mac. "Yelawolf is super ill. He brings a different perspective. It’s always good to have people that have something to say. He denitely knows who he is, and that’s one thing Em has always also been [good at]: zoning in on who he is."

Miller added that Yelawolf's style appealed to him because he crossed lines between genres, and later co-signed earlier statements made by the Shady Records rapper about white rappers' use of the N-word. " I agree with Yelawolf: I don’t think any white rapper should be using [the N-word]. Whether you’re a rapper or a cashier [that rule applies]. I nd it ridiculous that it’s even up for debate. I wasn’t raised to ever use that word, so I don’t see any circumstance where that would be appropriate."
