Proving he’s on the ball first thing in the morning, the super MC and Donald Trump’s rapping nemesis sat down with us over a cup of English breakfast tea. As he’s currently touring his third album, ‘GO:OD AM’, we wondered just how real this rapper (rated as a Cash King by Forbes magazine) is keeping it…
How much do you think a loaf of bread costs?
‘I don’t eat carbs. I’m fucking ripped! My six-pack, it glows.’
What’s in your pockets right now?
‘I plead the Fifth.’
You have a song on ‘GO:OD AM’ called ‘Break the Law’. If you were free to break the law, what would you do?
‘I would switch all the orange juice in the world with apple juice, and all the apple juice with orange juice.’
You were on Forbes’s Hip Hop Cash Kings list a few years ago. What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever done with your millions?
‘To be honest, pouring it all into renting houses. Kids, invest in real estate – don’t throw all your money away renting. I should be a homeowner by now.’
Your spat with Donald Trump made headlines. If you were President of the United States, what three things would you do first?
‘I would make college more affordable. I’d put my face on the quarter because George Washington didn’t do anything [to deserve it], obviously. And I would tell cops they couldn’t carry guns any more – because they suck at it.’
What’s your favourite snack when you get the munchies?
Desiigner is currently riding high with ‘Panda’. On it he says: ‘I got broads in Atlanta.’ What do you have in Atlanta?
‘I think I let a friend of mine borrow a hat, so I have a hat in Atlanta – and it has my name on the inside so people will know it’s mine.’
Was it a girl who borrowed it?
‘No, girls don’t really take my hat. Let a girl try and take my hat and I will write her an angry email.’
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you take?
‘Barbie, Ken and a Beanie Baby. We would start the New World.’
THE VERDICT: Keeping it real-ly funny, Mac has potential as a stand-up comic if the rapping doesn’t work out.
