“i’m not trying to put any negative energy into the world. @realDonaldTrump let’s be friends,” Miller responded on Friday (February 1) over Twitter.

It all started yesterday when the Don took issue over the use of his name in the gold-selling Mac Miller single “Donald Trump.” On the track which appeared on Miller’s Best Day Ever mixtape, the 21-year-old rapper proclaims to take over the world “on some Donald Trump sh–.”
“Little @MacMiller, you illegally used my name for your song ‘Donald Trump’ which now has over 75 million hits,” Trump charged before demanding some dividends from the rapper. “Little @MacMiller, I want the money not the plaque you gave me!”
The Don continued his attack, threatening to sue Miller. “Little @MacMIller, I’m now going to teach you a big boy lesson about lawsuits and finance. You ungrateful dog! “
Trump then linked to an August 2011 YouTube video where Miller expressed excitement that the billionaire even knew his name. Shortly before that interview, Trump released a viral vid of his own singing Miller’s praises. “This kid is the new Eminem, everybody says he’s fantastic,” he gushed then.
TDE MC Schoolboy Q hit Mac on Twitter on Thursday and gave his buddy a ribbing, as he normally does. “@MacMiller ima tell trump let’s go Half on a lawsuit,” Q wrote.
“@ScHoolBoyQ ima sue u for all them wack performances when u were on tour wit me I want my money back,” Miller responded jokingly.
MTV News reached out to Miller’s label Rostrum Records, but they had no comment about the matter.
