“What I revered a lot about him is I felt like he might’ve stayed the route he was arising off, the true poppy floor—to not diss that—however I felt like that wasn’t his objective; fame wasn’t his objective,” he added. “Doing creatively what he wished to do was his objective, and that evokes me ’trigger that’s what’s necessary to me, too.”

As for the upcoming Grammy awards, the place Mac is operating in opposition to Cardi B‘s Invasion of PrivacyNipsey Hussle‘s Victory Lap, Pusha T‘s Daytona and Travis Scott‘s Astroworld for Best Rap Album, Token thinks Mac deserves the win. 

“I imply my two favourite albums of that [category] are Mac and Travis,” he stated, selecting Mac’s tape as his primary. “The album speaks to lots of people and also you kinda didn’t even notice when it got here out. But to see how many individuals have come out and stated how a lot that album means to them, I feel that has actually linked together with his viewers and speaks to them greater than the opposite ones do.”
