Malcom McCormick knew he had to start it young to make it in the international rap scene. At 17, he reached that point. Born January 19, 1992, McCormick is known more as Mac Miller and formerly as Easy Mac who was once part of rap group The Ill Spoken. He was raised in Point Breeze, Pittsburgh, Penn. by Christian father and Jewish mother. He attended Winchester Thurston School and then Taylor Allderdice High School in which he began getting serious about a career in music.
As a teenager, Miller had wild days with his friends, getting arrested for house parties and crossing the border to Canada. But once he found out hip-hop, it was all he thought about. Teaching himself how to play various instruments since 6, Miller formed The Ill Spoken with fellow Pittsburgh emcee Beedie. They experienced success especially after the mixtape "How High" featuring DJ Diggz and Rated R. The duo opened shows for other artists including Soulja Boy.
The tour which will support the Pittsburgh native's upcoming album is opening on October 6 in Rochester, New York, and concluding on December 20 in Toronto.READ MORE
