Superbalist In The City is super excited to welcome American producer, rapper and all round superstar Mac Miller to their weekend takeover! This hip-hop heavyweight will bring his upbeat smooth style of spitting lyrics to the iconic concert at Emmarentia Dam on 9 October.
At only 24-years old, Mac Miller is part of the new school of hip-hop, a group of fast rising stars who are taking over the scene. In just nine short years since “dedicating his life to hip-hop” at the age of 15, his style has evolved from teenage frat-rapping to a more introspective and spiritual style in later albums like Faces and GO:OD AM. His sound has evolved from what critics call ‘party rap’ to an adaptive free-associative rhyming style, where Mac Miller is not just a rapper anymore, but also an eclectic artist who can easily adapt to different genres and can also craft, both for him and for other artists.
“No matter where life takes me, find me with a smile pursuit to be happy only laughing like a child I never thought life would be this sweet, It got me cheesing from cheek to cheek”
Mac Miller – Best Day Ever
Since releasing his first mix tape in 2007, Miller has released dozens of tracks, mixtapes and albums, selling hundreds of thousands of copies. His debut album, Blue Slide Park, hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and in 2013 Watching Movies with the Sound Off debuted at no.3 on the same chart. Miller released Faces and GO:OD AM independently in 2014 and 2015 respectively and he has just finished his GO:OD AM tour.
Mac Miller joins already announced Foster the People, Beardyman and Eats Everything on this year’s line-up for Superbalist In The City’s Jozi takeover from 7 – 9 October!
“Treat it like your last night. Even if you broke, spend tonight like your cash right.”
