Thelonious Martin also revealed that ‘Swimming’ was originally called ‘Guidelines.’
Since Mac Miller’s death last September, little information has surfaced about his catalog of unreleased music. While we still don’t know if a posthumous album will be released, Thelonious Martin did reveal that Mac had at least one project recorded. In an interview with DJBooth, he said that Mac has an album with producer Madlib that he never put out.
“He had this Madlib album, called Maclib,” Martin said. “I opened for Madlib in Chicago last summer, at Pitchfork. So I’m opening for Madlib, and about 15, 20 minutes left in my set, Madlib pulls up. Pete Rock walks up as well. So I’m trying to focus and DJ, and Madlib gets on and 15 minutes into his set he just randomly plays a Mac Miller joint. And I turn to him, I’m like, ‘There’s more of these, right?’ He’s said, ‘Oh, yeah, there’s a whole album. Maclib.’ What! What! He just kept moving on with his DJ set. If Madlib decides to bless the world with that project, he should.”
Martin explained that overall, he wouldn’t want Mac’s material released without the rapper there to oversee it. “I feel like, an album is such a personal conversation to have and the person’s not there to sign off on it,” he said. “He had a ton of music that was completely different from what the public would get… I don’t like posthumous albums, I don’t.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Martin revealed that Mac’s 2018 album, Swimming, was originally called Guidelines.
“[It] was the title of the track we had put out at the time,” he said. “Initially, that was the title track. We were having these long conversations about putting together an album, cause I’m telling him about how I’m putting together mine. We’re going back and forth about how to touch an audience, how to make an audio world.”
“Guidelines” dropped on August 20, 2018, the final Mac Miller song released during the rapper’s lifetime.
