    The Post-Gazette posted an article earlier today detailing Wiz and Mac's upcoming performance in Pixburgh this Saturday at the First Niagara Pavilion. They chopped it up with both artists as well, asking them about the differences in their styles, career, music and more. Check out a couple excerpts below the jump, or click HERE to read the full article!

    Wiz:

    In the interview, he shoots down a suggestion that he thought "Rolling Papers" was too pop-oriented.

    "Nah, not that," he says. "It's just the work process that went into it was a little different. I wanted to return to what I used to do and how I was originally working. It really had nothing to do with the project, just how the project came together. That's all that was. It was not about the music. I'm happy with the music. I'm just returning to my original work pattern -- not really concerned with who is doing the beats but more or less how we get it done. That pushed me in the direction of the hometown dudes who I always messed with -- E. Dan and Jerm, Sledgren and Cardo -- everybody that people are used to hearing me with."

    Mac:

    In terms of mixing it up on stage, Miller says, "Wiz can't come out during my show because he performs after me. A couple times I'll come out during his set just to have some fun. Like I went out and did a beer bong during his performance with Taylor Gang which was fun. We definitely watch each other and it's a very positive atmosphere. The show we just did in Toronto [on Sunday] was one of the best shows I've done in my whole career. Had like a record merch night, Drake came, the Weeknd came through. Drake watched my whole set."
