Top Dawg Entertainment’s REASON has found himself at the center of another controversy after name-dropped Mac Miller on his New Beginnings debut album. The TDE rapper ruffled the feathers of Mac Miller fans when he referenced his accidental drug overdose in September of 2018 on “Fall.”

“Look, you said you wanna be an artist/Well, we gon’ turn you to an addict/Get rid of the n*ggas that you got on with/Then give you the tools to dig your own shit/Surround you with some wack n*ggas/Some yes men that’s gon’ tell you that your raps iller/A couple cars, some jewelry, make your stacks bigger/Then one day you could become the next Mac Miller/Here’s your chance, n*gga, sign here,” REASON raps.

Mac fans took to Twitter to express their frustration with REASON’s jab.

“Reason dropped a great cautionary tale about yes men hurting people,” one fan pointed out. “The point would’ve been well received w/out mentioning Mac Miller Now that people’s attention is on ‘defending Mac,’  the yes men lesson will get lost in the dialogue Tact is crucial, he didn’t use enough of it.”

Another wrote, “Reason could’ve said all that without disrespecting Mac Miller.”

REASON’s New Beginnings album released on Friday (October 9) via Top Dawg Entertainment with features from ScHoolboy Q, Vince Staples, Rapsody, JID, Isaiah Rashad, Mereba and Ab-Soul.

The Mac Miller outrage comes on the heels of REASON sniping the newly-retired Logic on “The Soul – Pt. 2.” Logic dismissed REASON and the knock altogether. 

“Did REASON diss you on his new song?” Logic said during a Twitch stream, reading the screen. “I don’t know who that is.”
