In a new interview with GQ, Miller's engineer Josh Berg explained why Mac turned down Hov.

“[Mac Miller] didn’t sign to Roc-A-Fella because he was like, ‘I’m not gonna have it be that I needed the Jay-Z feature to get famous, for people to validate me and then people think it’s about that validation,’” Berg said.
