Mac Miller (born Malcolm McCormick) is a 19-year-old rapper from Pittsburgh, who, despite his young age, has already racked up quite a few achievements. In the four years since he released his first mixtape, But My Mackin Ain’t Easy, this MC has gone from a local sensation to selling out venues across the USA.
The turning point was his 2009 mixtape, The High Life, which helped him build an amazing following on the Internet and got him noticed by independent label, Rostrum Records. Upon turning 18, he released his debut with the label, K.I.D.S (Kickin’ Incredibly Dope Shit), featuring the songs “Knock Knock” and “Nikes On My Feet”. Both tracks quickly grew in popularity with his fans on YouTube, where Mac Miller’s videos have received over 20 million views.
Last month was pretty eventful for the young rapper, with two releases in just one month. On March 10, he released his new mixtape, Best Day Ever, and made it available as a free download on datPiff. On March 29, Rostrum Records released a six-track EP called On And On And Beyond, which is available now on all major download platforms.
