"Craig Jenkins' writing on Mac Miller may be some of the most important in the wake of his passing. Never one to bathe his discography in death, never one to misrepresent Malcolm, Jenkins' full interview transcript with Mac Miller, published the week after his death, stands to be the best peering into a psyche put to paper.
The ease of their conversation brings us deep into the workings of Malcolm's mind, but more importantly, we sense a reverence between the two creatives. A mutual respect that elevates the writing. This interview is a masterclass in connecting with and giving country to your subject, and the addendum on grief that prefaces the piece is some of the most touching writing Craig has done in recent memory."
