Mac Miller had a few surprises on his sophomore LP Watching Movies With The Sound Off. No, we’re not talking about the rare Jay Electronica sighting. We’re actually referring to an acapella verse from infamous battle rapper Loaded Lux at the end of “Red Dot Music.”
In the second installment of our exclusive sit down with Miller, he revealed that he was a fan of battle rapping and that was the inspiration for getting Lux on the project.
“The Loaded Lux thing was dope because I just thought about it like ‘I want to just have Loaded Lux come on my album and just kill me,” said the “S.D.S.” rapper.
The object was for the Harlem rhymer to approach his verse as if he were prepping for a rap battle. With that, we listeners received a verse full of whimsical verbal jabs of the most slanderous variety.
He continued, “It was perfect. I just told him to diss, but not only did he diss me, he followed the theme and the story of the album. It fit in perfectly out of nowhere.”
