Mac Miller had a great 2011. He was named to the XXL Freshman class, saw his song "Donald Trump" blow up on youtube and had a No. 1 debut with his indie album Blue Slide Park. Even with all of that under his belt, Miller still has his detractors. You can count 2012 XXL Freshman nominee Danny Brown as one of them.
"He’s the worst guy around. Don’t get me started. His album cover is like, 'Ugh, what is this?' He’s trying to be artistic, huh?" Danny told Rolling Stone. "If I see him, I’m just going to have to apologize to him, like, 'Man, I just want to apologize for hating you so much. Because I’m not going to stop. You’re probably a cool guy. I don’t feel violent in any way, but I really hate you. I hate your music, man.' It’s just bad."
Brown also had some not so kind words to say about Tyler, The Creator. He says the Odd Future rapper doesn't respect the older artists in the game unlike A$AP Rocky and his movement.
"I’m a lot older than the A$AP crew, so I’m like O.G. to them. They kind of respect me," Danny said. "And I respect them for being like that. You’ve got people like Tyler, The Creator who don’t respect O.G.’s. They’re my real friends. Whatever they need."
