Donald Trump Proclaims Mac Miller Is “The New Eminem!”
How do you get Donald Trump, a billionaire businessman more known for who he fires then who he hires, to endorse your rap career? Name a song after the cocky blowhard, of course.
Nineteen-year-old Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller had the good sense to do just that and when his video garnered more than 20 million hits on YouTube (currently the video is almost at 24 million hits), The Donald took notice and filmed a very special message from his penthouse office suite giving the newbie the thumbs up, and requesting a cut of the profits.
“It’s named ‘Donald Trump.’ Maybe he should pay me a lot of money,” says Donald. “I am proud of him. “I haven’t actually seen the language. It’s a little bit hard to understand on the song itself. But this kid is the new Eminem. Everybody says he’s fantastic.”
Clearly, Donald doesn’t listen to rap music (we’d be surprised if he even knew who anyone on the top Billboard 100 were, as a matter of fact), but what makes this comparison even more blasphemous is that Donald freely admits he doesn’t even understand what Mac is saying. All he can fathom is that Mac Miller is a white rapper, like Eminem, smart enough to name a song after the hottest billionaire with a comb-over. Seriously, this just makes no sense whatsoever. Sorry Donald, but you’re fired from posting anymore YouTube videos filled with your oblivious social commentary.
Thankfully Mac, who appeared on a few episodes of VH1′s Single Ladies in 2011, clearly understands that he has a long way to go before he can get anywhere close to Slim Shady.
“It was ridiculous how like people got so worked up over him being like ‘you’re the new Eminem,” said Mac to HardKnock.TV. “He’s not going to be like ‘I was listening to this Mac Miller kid and he seems influenced by Tribe Called Quest, he seems like he listens to a lot of Big L growing up and that he’s really going there in hip-hop.’ All he meant was I’m a white rapper and I’m blowing up. People were like ‘how can The Donald say that, how can they say that Mac Miller is Eminem, they’re different.’ Obviously we’re different, dude, so don’t worry about what Donald Trump calls me. I was just excited that I reached a level that someone like that I’m on their radar.”
