It’s been nearly two years since we lost Mac Miller and it still doesn’t seem real. His legacy continues to live on and still impacts the hip-hop community in many ways. Miller was an artist who respected the game, his peers, and admired everything about the culture. 

Recently North Carolina native Rapsody, sat down with Talib Kweli to discuss her collaborations with both Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle. She also touched on the memories she created with both late rappers. During the Uproxx interview, Talib Kweli had brought up when Rapsody had gone on tour with Mac Miller and how that experience was for her. Rapsody responded saying, “I think I had maybe one mixtape out and he was like, ‘I like you, I like your music. I want to help you, come on tour with me.” Straight like that, and I know I’m not the only one.” She added, “I’m one of many artists that he’s done that for and it speaks to his character. At the end of the day, he didn’t come in the culture feeling like he was owed anything or I can be here because I wanna be. He’s like ‘no, I understand this culture and who created this culture, and where it started.'” 

She then began to explain how much the hip-hop community respected the Pittsburgh MC and how the love they shared for him was unbearable. Check out the rest of the interview above to hear Rapsody reflect on the late great Nipsey Hussle.
