| September 8, 2012 - 2:42 pm

Mac Miller is only 20, yet his independent approach to music has made him worthy of hip-hop’s “self-made” title. The Pittsburgh native sat down with the threesome — DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God — at New York’s Power 105.1 for an episode of The Breakfast Club, where the three AM radio hosts did not hold back when asking the Macadelic rapper about his personal life. Among the gems they asked the youngster: “Is it true that you really broke your hand jerking off?” Miller handled the questions like a true sport, even discussing his finances and his recent appearance on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list. (In 2011, he played some 200 shows at $40,000 a night. Do the math!) Straight up, Miller needs to practice his freestyle skills, but holds his own talking about the rap game. Chances are if you didn’t like him already, you’ll like “the random white kid from Pittsburgh” more after watching this candid interview. Check it out below. Miller starts his fall tour on Sept. 13 in Louisville, KY. For tickets head to
