Market Frick Park

Best Day Ever to be a Kid

Pittsburgh native Mac Miller has exploded from an underground hip-hop sensation into a mainstream musical figure among the likes of teenagers with rapid force. His google searches & twitter followers have more than tripled since dropping his latest mix-tape Best Day Ever. Having many outsiders wondering, how some no name white kid rapping is quickly selling out venues across the country?

For starters, Mac has been able to exploit the niche market of weed rap garnering numbers of stoner groupies like his mentor and partner in crime Wiz Khalifa. But his subject matter is more than talking about his favorite herb; Mac Miller has captured an audience bored with tired themes and fake gangster personas. He has brought forth subject matter his audience can relate to "growing up in suburban America."

His mixtape K.I.D.S. aka Kicking Incredibly Dope Sh** was a huge success among the internet rap community. With innovative visuals in his music videos, pop choruses and fast paced lyrics Mac Miller became an instant hit among self proclaimed hip-hop heads. Most notably known for his music video "Donald Trump" (8 million views on youtube), Mac Miller approaches the songs with a sing song flow and raps about everyday things. Things kids can relate too. His debut album Blue Slide Park is expected to hit stores November 8th.
