In Pittsburgh, Mac Miller made his name, eventually becoming one of the biggest rappers in the game. Most impressive about the success Mac Miller has enjoyed has been how he has done it. Unlike Wiz Khalifa, who held meeting with many major labels, before signing with Atlantic Records, Mac Miller chose to remain independent. After his debut album, Mac Miller said he would consider a major label deal.
Releasing Blue Slide Park without the backing of a major label, Mac Miller watched his album debut on top of the charts. Proving he could successfully release an album without a label behind him, Mac Miller will likely sign with a label in the future. Knowing the system in place can work, Mac Miller is likely enjoying the freedom, as he has continued releasing mixtapes.
His latest project is Pink Slime, which Mac Miller discussed with VIBE TV on the red carpet of the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. While did not perform and did not win any awards, Mac Miller did present an award, as did Wiz Khalifa.
