Post Malone discusses the joint album he was going to make with Mac Miller in a new interview with Zane Lowe.

In August 2018, a month before Mac Miller died from an overdose, he revealed that he had been in the studio with Thundercat, Post Malone, and producer Frank Dukes. Miller said, "Me and Post [Malone] have been talking about doing an album, so we got together. And then Frank Dukes has worked on a bunch of my records, but we had never met, so he came through too. And then Thundercat appeared and we all started jamming."

Discussing Mac Miller in a new interview with Zane Lowe for Beats 1, Post Malone discusses how much he valued Mac Miller, "Mac was the first one that tweeted me. It’s so weird because I listened to him since the beginning, I was like, 'Yeah, awesome. This guy’s cool as shit.' Then to be able to meet him and become friends with him was just like, 'I look up to you, and now we’re sitting here playing beer pong.'"

On how the idea for a collaborative album came about, Post Malone said, "We were sitting there playing beer pong and we were like, 'Let’s make a fucking album.' Then we were coming up with names and then it’s so weird too, because it was like a day, two days after he died. We were at an Airbnb in LA, and all of a sudden the TV turns on, and on the TV and it wouldn’t stop. We tried disconnecting it and all this shit. Then we turned it off and then it came back on and I was just like, ‘This is fucking weird, it gives me chills.’ I don’t know. What an incredible, honestly, what a genuine human being."

Post Malone's new album Hollywood's Bleeding is out now.
