Mac Miller Opens Up About His Drug Problem on The Breakfast Club

He's cleaned up and ready to work.

Published August 11, 2015

Mac Miller is back on the scene with his new single, “100 Grandkids.” He’s also got an album coming out called Good A.M. on Sept. 18, so he appeared on The Breakfast Club to talk about everything that’s been going on with him after battling with a drug problem for a few years.

In this interview, Mac is both honest and entertaining as he explains the reason for his absence and why he’s officially sobered up. “It was time to clean my act up and get back to work,” he says. “Just accept my responsibilities and who I am and what I gotta do.”


At the time of his departure, Macklemore and Iggy Azalea were getting ridiculed for being white rappers in hip hop. Mac touches on this subject, as well as his new song.

“The first half of the record is about having grandchildren,” he says. “It’s really not a heavy message behind the record. It’s kind of a stupid double entendre where the first record is about grandkids, and the second time is about the first time I got a 100 grand.”

He continued, “My main thing is that I wanted to come back with something that was confident and some fun. There’s nothing wrong with being fun. There’s nothing wrong with feeling yourself, and that’s the head-space I wanted to get into before I came back. I didn’t want to come back depressed.”
