Mac Miller is one of many examples of the changing music business. The young rapper became interested in music at a young age, and became fascinated with hip-hop while still in his teens. Through the use of social media, he has gained a large following without ever signing to a major record label. His youth in Pittsburgh helped shape his music, a city with a rich hip hop tradition.
Like many young performers in hip hop, Miller demonstrated his skills on the mic through the release of mixtapes online, the earliest of which was 2007's But My Mackin' Ain't Easy. The success of his mixtape releases culminated with 2011's Best Day Ever, which featured the track "Donald Trump." The single charted at #80 on the Billboard Hot 100, an impressive feat for a track that received no major radio airplay. The Donald himself mentioned the track on Twitter, and compared Miller favorably to Eminem.
Miller's early success includes 2 Pittsburgh hip-hop awards and inclusion on XXL magazine's Freshman Class of 2011. His first full length album, Blue Slide Park, arrived in November 2011, with the debut single "Frick Park Market," arriving a few months before. Miller toured extensively in support of the new album, gaining increasing recognition.
While his career is still mostly ahead of him at this point, Mac Miller's devoted following only grows with his attention to social media, strong live shows, and skillful lyrics.
