In 2007 at 15, he released a mixtape “But My Mackin’ Ain’t Easy” under the name EZ Mac. He built a fan base via performances at a local club, the Shadow Lounge. He later became part of rap group The III Spoken, and with them, he released the mixtape “How High” in 2008 before going solo.

He released two other mixtapes before signing with Rostrum Records in 2010. The company who was also working with Wiz Khalifa at the time got attracted to him when he was working with another mixtape titled “K.I.D.S” which was inspired by the 1995 film “Kids”. The movie centred around the lives of a group of sexually active teenagers, the mixtape was later released by Rostrum. Later in 2010, Miller went on his first tour, “The Incredibly Dope Tour” which was a significant breakthrough as all the locations were sold out.

Debut Album Release and Continued Success

He released several other mixtapes including “Best Day Ever” which featured single Donald Trump before independently releasing his debut studio album titled “Blue Slide Park” in 2011. The album sold 400,000 copies and debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. It became the first independently distributed album top on the Billboard 200 since Tha Dogg Pound’s Dogg Food” in 1995. Since the album was released independently, Miller and Rostrum made greater profits, splitting the profit between themselves after paying iTunes their 25% cut.

For the mixtape, Mac Miller began his first tour, titled the “Incredible Dope Tour” on which he sold out every location. It was a massive success.

His Relationship With Ariana Grande

Mac Miller and Ariana Grande are a couple and have been going strong for a while now.

Apart from a few Instagram pictures here and there, Mac Miller and Ariana are known for keeping their romance pretty private. They almost never talk about their relationship. They have never even confirmed their relationship at all, even though Ariana Grande recently sparked engagement rumors when she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her ring finger.

Mac Miller and Ariana Grande met on Twitter after Ariana mentioned that she was watching a Thanksgiving parade and Mac Miller replied to her tweet wishing her a happy Thanksgiving and asking for a duet for “Larry Loveskin.” Ariana replied him, saying she would love to do that.

They both did a duet, which happened to be a “Baby It’s Cold Outside” duet. Ariana posted it on her Youtube page, and later, in March 2013, she posted another single, “The Way” on which she had featured Mac.

From then on, it seems they only got stronger. Even though they both denied the rumors of their relationship, they have both been spotted kissing on dates together.

After the Machester Attack at Ariana’s concert, Ariana held a star-studded concert in honor of the victims of the bombing, and also to raise money for their families. During this concert, she did a performance with Mac Miller, in which she was wearing a diamond ring on her ring finger, sparking an engagement rumor. Since that day, she has not been spotted in public without the ring on her finger.


Miller has an extensive collection of tattoos all over his body. From his neck to his sleeves, wrists, knuckles, and to his legs, the rapper obviously loves having art on his body. According to him, the designs represent who he is. Miller’s tattoos remind him of the moment and he encourages people not to get too lost in the meaning of tats.

In 2016, Mac Miller and Ariana Grande got inked at the same time at a popular tattoo shop, however, they did not get matching tattoos. The couple later took to social media to flaunt their new designs.

Though the rapper admitted that the process of tattooing his body actually hurts, he, however, doesn’t regret any of them. Miller only regrets not having enough space on his body to do more and thinks getting fatter might be the only solution.

On September 7, 2018, Miller was found unresponsive in his Studio City home by his personal assistant, who called 911 and performed CPR until paramedics arrived on scene. He died of an apparent overdose

Other Interesting Details About The Late Musician

He is a self-taught musician

There are a few remarkable things that Mac Miller did before he, unfortunately, passed away but one fact about him that sparks interest in his musical exploits is the fact he taught himself music. On his own, he learned how to play the guitar, drums, bass, and piano, all before he was fourteen years old and once again, taught himself how to rap. At the age of 15, he decided to make a career out of being a rapper, releasing his first mixtape in 2007 under the stage name, Easy Mac.

His first charting single was titled, Donald Trump

If Mac Miller were still alive, he might not be a big fan of the 45th President of the United States, if his statements leading up to the 2016 election are anything to go by, but back in 2011, he was a fan of the real estate mogul. His first Billboard Hot 100 single was named after the businessman, with lyrics praising him and his wealth. The single peaked at number 75 and has sold more than one million copies.

Mac Miller’s first album was a critical failure

Considering his debut studio album, Blue Slide Park was a commercially successful album that established Mac Miller’s fame as a rapper, one of the lesser-known truths about it is the fact it was a critical failure. The album was panned by critics from Metacritic to Pitchfork and Rolling Stone. The disappointment of the critical reception of the album sent Mac into a tailspin of drugs.

He began using drugs heavily in 2012

Mac Miller died as a result of drugs, and it was a journey that began in 2012 when he started using promethazine to relieve the stress of the Macadelic Tour. Sadly, he graduated to lean, and other hard and dangerous drugs, which he eventually got addicted to. By 2014, Miller was taking drugs daily but before he died, he had intermittent periods of soberness, one in 2016 and another in 2017.

He faced multiple legal problems

Another untold truth about the life of Mac Miller is that he faced a variety of legal problems during his lifetime. His first run-in with the law was an arrest for marijuana possession in February 2011.
Others include a couple of lawsuits for stolen intellectual property, a $10 million lawsuit from the renowned producer, Lord Finesse and a $150,000 lawsuit from the band, Aquarian.

He was also arrested for driving under the influence, during which he also committed a hit and run. He was charged for the crime but he died before a trial, and the charges were eventually dropped.

Three people have been arrested for his death

Although he died of a drug overdose, an investigation into his death has resulted in the arrest of three people who were involved in the chain distribution of the toxic drug. Cameron James Pettit, Ryan Reavis, and Stephen are facing charges for lacing the drugs with counterfeit oxycodone which contained fentanyl.

He was worth $9 million at the time of his death

Despite the struggles in his career, Mac Miller was worth a significant amount of money at the time of his death, estimated to be $9 million. His net worth came from five albums, multiple mixtapes, and other career ventures and his entire wealth was willed to his mother, brother, and father.
