Mac Miller Covers Billboard Magazine

Mac Miller may not be a household name, but the 19-year-old rapper has made enough of a splash to be featured on the latest issue of Billboard magazine.

According to the mag, the Pittsburgh native, born Malcom McCormick, has garnered 180 million views on YouTube, 1.4 million friends on Facebook, and 1 million-plus followers on Twitter. Much of his success is due to his smash song, ‘Donald Trump,’ which currently boasts over 33 million views on YouTube.

On the cover of Billboard, Miller is wearing a leopard print coat and gripping an old-school mic with a surprised look on his face. There are two other pictures to the sides of the main photo — Miller is mean muggin’ on the right, and flashing a goofy smile on the left. The pimptastic coat he is sporting and his range of expressions reflect Miller’s fun approach to music, creating catchy hip-hop songs that young people can relate to.

The self-taught musician — who plays guitar, drums, bass and piano — fell in love with music at a young age, but began focusing on it intently in high school. “Once I hit 15, I got real serious about it and it changed my life completely,” he told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I used to be into sports, play all the sports, go to all the high school parties. But once I found out hip-hop is almost like a job, that’s all I did.”

With plenty of sold-out shows under his belt, the unassuming teen is prepping to unveil his album, ‘Blue Slide Park,’ on Nov. 8. The LP will be released on Rostrum Records, home to rappers like Nitty and Wiz Khalifa.

The new issue of Billboard, featuring Mac Miller, is on newsstands now.
