Mac Miller makes me feel old.
He was born in Pittsburgh in 1992 and has released two albums. He was one of 11 rappers featured in XXL’s Freshman Class of 2011, highlighting up-and-coming artists in the hip hop game. He has worked with Maroon 5, Wiz Khalifa is his BFF and Donald Trump is calling him “the new Eminem.” Add Bonnaroo to the mix and he’s pretty much having the best year ever.
Miller is known for performing in a number of different styles, for his “psychedelic influences” and for penning deep lyrics. In true rap fashion, most of his songs focus on marijuana, women and living the dream, but he’s known to experiment within the genre — which any fan can appreciate.
Words can’t describe how excited I am about the Mac Miller set. He’s young, he’s fresh and he’s funny — a winning combination for anyone who wants to make it in the rap industry. And he’s just so damn catchy. Check out a few of the songs I’ve posted below and I’m sure you will be rapping to yourself for the rest of the day. I’m anticipating a really good time.
Miller is playing at 3 p.m. on Sunday, putting him up against The Beach Boys. Call me crazy, but there are only one or two songs I’d like catch before heading over to Easy Mac. Roo is about trying out new artists and exploring new sounds, and I plan to do just that. I just wish he was playing a little later. I think he could rock a late-night set.
- Blue Slide Park (2011)
- On and On and Beyond EP (2011)

“I just wanna ride, ride through the city in a Cutlass/Find a big butt bitch, somewhere get my nuts kissed/That’s the way it goes when you party just like I do/Bitches on my dick that used to brush me off in high school.” — Mac Miller, Donald Trump (2011).
