Coming on the scene with a throwback style that betrayed his years, Malcolm “Mac Miller” McCormick is a rising star in the hip hop community and rapidly becoming a household name. At 19-years-old, this MC has gone from a local sensation to selling out venues across the United States. A multi-talented musician with a distinct Golden Era delivery, a great ear for instrumentals, and a positive message, Mac has been focused on paving his own path in music. Musically gifted, Mac had taught himself to play piano, drums, guitar and bass by the age of six. Influenced by artists such as Big L, Lauryn Hill, The Beastie Boys, Outkast, and A Tribe Called Quest, he began cultivating his own art of rhyme and started to develop a reputation for delivering jaw-dropping freestyles in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. By 2009 Mac had released his first two recording projects, “The Jukebox” and “The High Life,” generating a buzz both in the streets and across the Internet. By 2010, Mac’s musical abilities became undeniable. After signing with independent record label Rostrum Records, he released his debut album K.I.D.S. The album, which features his songs, “Knock Knock” and “Nikes On My Feet,” quickly grew in popularity with his fans on iTunes and on YouTube, where his videos have received over 20 million views. In 2011, Mac’s star continued to rise, with his widely popular “Incredibly Dope Tour,” and the release of his highly anticipated album, Best Day Ever. With the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette describing his music as, “Catching the Nation by Storm,” few can argue with The Source: “The sky is the limit for this Pittsburgh native.” His upcoming tour is in support of his newest effort, The Blue Slide Park, which is set to be released in September 2011.
