Move over Wiz Khalifa Pittsburgh has a new budding rap star. Point Breeze native Mac Miller aka Malcolm McCormick is set to release his debut album "Blue Slide Park" on Rostrum Records this fall. The 19-year old Taylor Allderdice High School graduate's first single titled "Frick Park Market" is approaching 2.5 million views on youtube. The song's title is in reference to a little market located in Point Breeze that Miller has frequented since he was a young child. The hit video was shot in Pittsburgh at the neighborhood store, Blue Side Park, and Lawrenceville's Ice House Studios.
The spotlight is nothing new to the local artist as he has shared the stage with Young Jeezy and fellow Allderdice alum Wiz Khalifa in the past. Donald Trump has even compared Mac Miller to Eminem after the rapper's video "Donald Trump" surpassed 20 million youtube views.
