Mac Miller

Mac Miller (Malcolm James McCormick) is a Pittsburgh-born rapper and producer whose 2011 independently-released debut album, Blue Slide Park, ranked number one on the Billboard 200.

Raised in Point Breeze, Pittsburgh, Miller began his rap career at the age of fourteen under the title EZ Mac before changing it to Mac Miller. He attended the Taylor Allderdice High School alongside other famed Pittsburgh rapper, Wiz Khalifa, and both are signed onto the Rostrum Records label. Miller produces music under the pseudonym Larry Fisherman. Mac Miller's first album launched his career to fame, which now consists of an impressive discography: two studio albums, two extended plays, eleven mixtapes, sixteen singles and twenty-nine music videos. He has toured five times, including the Macadelic and Under the Influence of Music tours. His most popular songs include “Donald Trump,” “Knock Knock” and “Loud”. He has collaborated with artists Maroon 5, Wiz Khalifa, Ariana Grande and Pharrell Williams, among others. Miller reps his Pittsburgh pride in most songs and music videos, including “Party on Fifth Ave” and “Frick Park Market,” both a play on locations in the city.  

Mac Miller is fond of deli sandwiches and cartoons. He was last seen in his hometown in April 2014 to headline a concert at Carnegie Mellon University. He is currently promoting his clothing collection, Old Jewish Diamonds, through the website oldjewish.com where you make a virtual sandwich to get a mixtape.
