Not only did Mac Miller knew what he wanted to do but he also thrived hard to reach where he wanted to be. All the hard work paid off when he made it in the international rap scene at the age of 17. During the high school days, Mac Miller got very committed to making his career in music.
Have you ever been interested in something so much that you start doing everything related to that?
Yes, you are right!
That’s what Miller did from a very early age. He started practicing using different instruments all by himself at the age of 6 and with practice got better and better.
Mac Miller belonged to a family with two religions where his father was a Christian, his mother was a Jewish lady. Miller was brought up as a Jew and spent his childhood in the Point Breeze area of Pittsburgh. Miller was also a keen sportsperson and loved playing different games and also like other young people loved to spend time with his friends partying. Well, who does not enjoy doing that?
It is without any doubt the most amazing time that we spend in our early ages. Isn’t it?
So if you are thinking that Miller only worked on improving his skills and spent all of his time learning new instruments then you are wrong. Miller was a fun-filled person who loved to party and spend time with his friends. There were so many times he and his friends got arrested for house parties and even for crossing the border to Canada.
How thrilling does that sound?
After his first album was released and was loved by everyone, which finally got debuted as the best on Billboard 200 chart, it made him famous in a very short period of time. After a number of hits, Miller was thought of as the number one American singing star of the future. He not only did rapping but he also produced records that were well known with the name ‘Larry Fisherman’.
We all know how Mac Miller started with his career at a very young age and got successful. Isn’t that inspiring?
While studying he introduced his first-ever mixtape that was referred to as ‘But My Mackin’ Ain’t Easy’ when he was only 14 years old. Being a part of a rap group, in 2008 Miller again released one more mixtape known as ‘How High’ which also gained popularity and was loved by his fans. In 2010, when he was only 17 years old Miller got a lot of invitations from the top most music labels of the country.
Can you imagine how elated he might be feeling after achieving so much when he was in his teenage years? Think of how proud his family would be feeling because of him.
For Miller 2010 was a year filled with achievements and so many popular releases. His work was not only liked by the people of his country but it was loved all around the globe. In 2011, he introduced his first-ever album ‘Blue Side Park’ on YouTube. It came on number one on the billboard 200 and was able to sell 144000 copies in just one week of the release.

Miller after getting such a positive response from his followers was also able to get the love of other people who became his fan after his album release.
Major Achievements in life
The hard work pays off when your fans like your work and appreciate it by nominating you for awards. Miller was loved by his followers so much which helped him in getting the awards in different categories. Without any doubt, Miller deserved all the awards that he received after all the hard work he has done in his life. He got two awards in 2010 at Pittsburgh hip hop awards, his first album which was called as the blue side park came on number one spot on billboard 200. He made a lot of successful albums but his first album is considered to be his best one.
Seeing someone hardworking and dedicated dying at a very young age in his 20s, makes you feel so sad. Isn’t it?
He had decided so much for his future and also had so many plans for the year he passed away due to the overdose of drugs. Everyone who knew him in his life and the fans that loved him and his work were in a state of shock after the news broke out.
Obviously, a person who is young, successful and so dedicated to his work dying at a young age is devastating. Even I could feel the pain as I was one of his fans who enjoyed his albums a lot.
Even after his death of Mac Miller, his ongoing project named as ‘Circles’ was announced and released by his family at the start of 2020. This last album by Mac Miller also gained popularity all over the world.
Last but not Least – The Legacy
Being one of his biggest fan myself, I think his whole life was an achievement. He was one of those lucky people who got a chance to get featured in billboard 200. All of his albums have been hits and have received so much love and appreciation, but he never took that as granted and always looked forward to bringing a much better content the next time for his audience.
Can you imagine how much better his upcoming albums would have been if he was alive today?
Ahh, all of his fans surely miss him for his music, personality and honesty he had about his drug addiction.
He will surely be remembered always!
