Life post-Grammy nomination must be grand. Especially for Mack Wilds, who has been having a very successful interview streak this week. Most recently, he hits the stage of “The Arsenio Hall Show” and kicked off Arsenio’s show with a capturing performance of “Own It.”
Wilds says he found out about his nomination through his label, and almost wrecked his Richmond, VA hotel room. He said that because the Grammys mean so much to him, he wants to take the people who have influenced him the most with him that night: his father and grandfather.
After having appeared in Jay-Z‘s “Roc Boys” video, Wilds says he and Jay stayed very close. He says Jay has taught him lessons along the way, and the one that stuck out the most was when Jay told him never to ask for handouts. He encouraged Wilds to keep working hard and said that the handouts would come on their own.

Earlier this year when Mac Miller and Pharrell announced their Pink Slime EP we were excited! We knew it would be a hot collab, but the EP didn’t drop.
