Video After The Jump
Donald Trump just dropped a video clip heaping praise on Mac Miller. The 19-year old Miller's video for "Donald Trump," the song has 21 million views on youtube since it was posted in March.
Those kind of numbers get a lot of attention, especially from someone like Trump, who loves the attention.
"A lot of people are calling me about the Mac Miller rap song," Trump says. "It's named Donald Trump, maybe he should pay me a lot of money. But it just hit over 20 million [views]. I haven't actually seen the language. It's a little bit hard to understand. Probably it's not the cleanest language we've ever heard, but this kid is the new Eminem. Everybody says he's fantastic, so let's see what it is."
We all know Donald Trump couldn't tell Gucci Mane from Nas, so his opinion doesn't matter much, but it does bring up an interesting question. Are people really starting to believe Miller is the next Eminem?
Don't get me wrong, Miller is a 2011 XXL Freshman for a reason. The kid has real talent, but anybody comparing him to Eminem at this stage of his career is really reaching in my opinion.
What do you think of the Eminem/Mac Miller comparisons?
