Mac miller interview larry king full
Here's everything Miller has said about drug abuse, depression and death: On his independently-released mixtape, Faces , Miller referenced the death of another star who lost his battle with drugs: Philip Seymour Hoffman. Rapping about how "a drug habit like Philip Hoffman will probably put me in a coffin," the rapper mentioned his use of cocaine, codeine cough syrup and angel dust. A year later, Miller appeared to kick some of those habits with the release of new -- and happier -- album, GO: OD AM.
In an August interview with Billboard , Miller admitted that Faces was "super depressing. I was too worried about the legacy that I would leave behind -- how I would be remembered if I died," he confessed. Miller said he was worried about dying, because he was "doing a lot of drugs" -- which he had tried to keep more under control. That was the plan with Faces' [closing song]. The rapper said at the time that he was "way healthier," but not sober.
He still smoked cigarettes, but said his drug use was "way better" than it was.
What would you ask Gus Kenworthy?
But once you just breathe and relax, you come to terms with it. Go out there and do it, stop hiding,' because that was me before," he shared. I can look in the mirror and be like, 'I look OK.
One month later, Miller told Larry King that his depression and drug use were intertwined. It wasn't just in music, but I definitely was going through a drug problem and I think it was more my state of mind. I was just pretty depressed," he said. You have money. Fame is tricky because you read what's said about you, and you know what you know to be true, and the lines start to blur.
In a February documentary for Fader , Miller again discussed overdosing -- but admitted that he "hates being sober.
Overdosing is just not cool," he said. You just die. Things seemed to be going pretty well for Miller, until his breakup with Ariana Grande. Just weeks after the couple went public with their split, he was arrested on a charge of DUI, after driving his car into a power pole in the San Fernando Valley.
He and his two passengers fled the scene on foot, and he was arrested at his home an hour later. No version of the story that didn't end up with me being fine," he explained.
Thanks for watching Larry King Now on Ora.tv!
I'm a human being, like, drove home drunk. But it was the best thing that could have happened I needed that. I needed to run into that light pole and literally like, have the whole thing stop. Miller openly admitted that he used promethazine and cocaine in the years after his chart-topping debut album, Blue Slide Park, but in an interview with Rolling Stone last month, he insisted his drug use was in the past. The album is due out on September 18th, and the rapper has been selective about his promotional tools-- he did pay a visit to the Breakfast Club, and he's done a few podcasts.
During the minute interview, Mac discusses the title GO: OD AM , and trying to create something a little more positive than past records. He also talks about jumping on to a major label, and if that means he'll get a little more commercial with his music.
