Rappers Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller have a lot in common. They both like to rap, they are both Pittsburgh, Pa. natives, they both released chart-topping albums and they both enjoy the occasional green bud. Now the dynamic duo are going to get high this summer on their Under the Influence of Music Tour.
As predicted, Mac Miller's first full-length record 'Blue Slide Park' -- which includes tracks like 'Party on Fifth Ave.' and 'Donald Trump' -- debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The 19-year-old rapper sold 144,000 copies of his freshman album in the first week after 'Blue Slide Park' was released, according to Nielsen SoundScan (via Billboard).
If early predictions are accurate, Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller is about to make history on the Billboard 200 album chart by entering at No. 1. Billboard reports that Miller's 'Blue Slide Park' is on pace to sell more than 180,000 copies. That would make it the first independently-distributed debut to enter the chart at No. 1 since Tha Dogg Pound's 'Dogg Food' in 1995.
Mac Miller –- Malcolm McCormick on his birth certificate -- is the latest Billboard cover star, and in the accompanying feature story, the rapper recounts his humble beginnings and his still-happening rise to fame. Turns out he has a lot of background and historical similarities to some of our favorite superstars.
Nineteen-year-old rapper Mac Miller is a senior citizen in the video for his new track, 'Party on Fifth Ave.' The Pittsburgh rapper and his friends don't let their advanced age keep them from causing trouble and taking over the dance floor.
