The documentary was created by The Fader, and is titled Stopped Making Excuses. The title is fitting, as Mac seems like he is trying to grow up, and to stop blaming others for the mistakes he made.

In the documentary, Mac Miller talks about moving to L.A. from Pittsburgh because of the energy California has. However, moving to California was detrimental to Mac’s life as he had a lot of time and money on his hands. Due to that combination, Mac eventually started to experiment heavily with drugs.

Present day Mac is a lot better. He has figured out how to turn up without being out of control. “I’d rather be the corny white rapper than the drugged-out mess that can’t even get out of his house,” Mac says. “You don’t go down in history because you overdosed.”

Mac also talks about how he feels being white helped him gain his fan base.
