Mac Lethal

Mac Lethal is a hip-hop/folk artist from Kansas City, MO. After getting his start as a battle rapper at the prestigious, world renowned freestyle battle festival Scribble Jam, he shattered the stigma that battle rappers cannot write quality songs and began to self-release his own quirky music. Quickly he began to catch the attention of artists like Sage Francis, P.O.S, and Atmosphere, who he subsequently toured with.

Q.

About Bennett

Is Bennett a real person, or is he someone you made up for your Tumblr?

Q.

How do u make lyrics fit

How do you make the lyrics fit so easy? It's like you make them fit together so they make a fast sound with your vocals. Im a fan from Iceland and I like rap like the fast kind of rap that you make.  I want to know how to make such fast lyrics so I can start my own carrer as a rapper.

Q.

What motivated you to become a rapper and who were some of your idols? What advice would you have for anyone out there trying to make it in the rap game? BTW: Mac Lethal is awesome.

Q.

Lyrics

How do you feel about  songs like "Charlie Sheen Bi-Winning" and your pancake song overshadowing the lyrics of your other, more lyrical and deeper songs? Are you comfortable loosing your cred as a lyrical madman and being stamped as a frat music entertainer?

Q.

Bennett

Are you ever going to share more ventures that Bennett had?
Q.

Question for Mac Lethal

How did you begin to learn to rap that fast? I'm trying to learn, but I keep jumbling up my words! Any advice?

Q.

General

You look like you make a mean pancake, but is that your kitchen? Because that stove looks jacked.  You need to "switch it for Miele" like Jay-Z says.

Success

As your videos go more viral, and your music gets more popular, and you gain more fans, do you feel any pressure to keep up with expectations? And is it stressful, or humbling, or both? Big fan, Mac.
Q.

Making videos

What gave you the idea to start doing the YouTube speed raps? I know the first one was kinda a response to Watsky, but was it just to see if you could go viral?
