OG Maco discussed his short-lived 2015 beef with Future on “No Jumper.”
In 2015, on the heels of releasing his 56 Nights mixtape, . On the mixtape’s title track, Future famously stated “I took fifty-six bars all in one month n**** and I’m still dranking” and felt compelled to point out that “56 Xans isn’t cool.” While expressing admiration for his music, Maco claimed that “Future [had] destroyed countless lives by making it cool to be a drug addict.”
Maco’s comments resulted in a with Future, which was behind-the-scenes. Five years later, Maco discussed that incident on No Jumper, appearing not to have any regrets about what he said. He started by referencing a line in the 2008 Batman movie, The Dark Knight, that we are all probably familiar with: “You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain.”
“That’s what the kids want,” Maco continued, drawing the connection to his experience. “They either want you to die a hero or they wait until you try to tell them a better way and they vilify you. And how do you escape that? It’s not until conversations like now where – how many years later after they vilified me – that now we can just sit here and casually laugh about and talk about it, where I don’t have any fucking animosity or energy toward it so people know I don’t really give a fuck and we could just laugh about and it’s like ‘damn man, you guys were pretty stupid to think that.’ But [since] then, look at how many people have died?”
OG Maco and Adam22 went on to discuss the recurrence of drug overdoses in rap, specifically that of Juice WRLD.
