In a blossoming hip-hop hotbed of talent, Malcolm “Mac Miller” McCormick has arrived as the latest superstar out of Pittsburgh, PA. A graduate of Taylor Allderdice High School, Mac caught the eyes and ears of Rostrum Records, inking a deal in July 2010. A multitalented musician who can play numerous instruments and a young novice of the freestyle/cipher/battle circuit of his hometown, Mac’s buzz became undeniable.
The success of his early street buzz and social media dominance also led to Mac to selling out shows across the world with The Incredibly Dope Tour quickly transitioning into the internationally sold out Blue Slide Park Tour with almost 200,000 tickets sold in 2011. Mac followed those tours in 2012 with his “Macadelic Tour” and co-headlining the Summer of 2012′s hottest tour “Under The Influence Of Music” with fellow Rostrum Records labelmate Wiz Khalifa.
Mac’s selling potential was also immediately apparent as his debut Rostrum EP, “On and On and Beyond,” sold over 125,000 copies digitally alone. Mac has now sold over 4.5 million singles total with little to no radio airplay. In November of 2011, Mac continued his surge of success by becoming the first independent artist since 1995 to debut atop the Billboard Charts with “Blue Slide Park.” As of January 2013, “Blue Slide Park” had sold almost 400,000 copies.
Mac’s MTV2 reality show “Mac Miller and The Most Dope Family” became the highest rated debut in the history of the channel. His social media presence has also continued to grow with Mac having almost 4 million Twitter followers, 3.6 million fans on Facebook, and 500 million views on his personal Youtube channel. Mac is ready to top the charts again with his sophomore album “Watching Movies with the Sound Off". Look for Mac Miller to continue his rise to dominance in the international music world in 2013 and beyond.
