Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller has seen his fair share of “highs & lows”, but lately it has been nothing but “highs” for the marijuana music maker. Mac first received acclaim with his debut album Blue Slide Park, in 2011, which debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 and became the first independently distributed album to debut atop the chart since 1995. Just a few months ago Mac left his label of four years, Rostrum Records, and has started a new journey of his own.
In recent days Mac has been very busy with delivering those most dope lyrics, producing music, and celebrating the “holidays”. This pass Easter Sunday was not your typical Easter, because there was an added treat for marijuana enthusiasts. Easter Sunday was also 4/20, a day used to celebrate cannabis. Mac kicked off the holiday festivities Saturday night at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, Colorado. Fellow tokers Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa also came out to join in on the weekend-long celebration at the 4/20 Rally.
Once the smoke cleared over the weekend, Mac got back to business as usual and released three tracks as part of Most Dope’s Treejay and DJ Clockwork‘s new mixtape Home N Stoned. The tracks released by Mac are titled “Happy”, Walkin’ Home”, and “One Six Nine”. The three songs all stand apart as each brings a distinctive sound.
Mac received a lot of skepticism with his decision to leave the label that helped build him, but the voices from the peanut gallery seemed to have silenced and Mac’s movement seems even stronger. Mac is gaining support from everywhere. Even the folks over at SportsBettingDime.com think this will be Mac’s year to turn the industry upside down and claim his seat at the top. Long time friend Wiz Khalifa has paved the way for his Pittsburgh cohort and the possibilities seem endless.
