Mac Miller

Pittsburgh hip-hop earned its place on the map last year, mostly thanks to Wiz Khalifa’s anthemic jams—and hot on his tail is young gun Mac Miller. Trying to step out from the shadow of his big homie and Rostrum Records labelmate, Miller—who, by the way, just recently snapped up his high school diploma—embarked on his “Incredibly Dope Tour” supporting latest mixtape K.I.D.S. (Kickin’ Incredibly Dope Shit) and its deep bench of playful weed-laced rhymes that mesh well with an effortless flow. In the end, he comes off as the kid everyone liked in high school, and his skillfully laid-back tunes can jump between cliques just as well. With Logics. NICK FELDMAN
