Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania based American rapper Mac Miller was born with the real name of Malcolm McCormick. Coming from a Jewish family, they were settled at an area called Point Breeze in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was blessed with a great musical sense right from early childhood but never actually went to learn music formally at any institute. It is therefore that the critics often call him a self taught musician. Mac Miller graduated from Taylor Allderdice High School and while as a freshman there, he discovered his own potential to create good music. He was interested in hip hop genre of modern music and often used to play at his local parties. According to his own account, he was not very serious about his musical abilities while as a student but when he turned fifteen, his interest in arts and music became deeper and for the first time he thought about pursuing a career in music seriously. According to him, at that time he was just like any other ordinary school boy, but after realizing the fact that his talent could make him famous and he could actually take it up as a career, he started taking music seriously and worked even harder to polish his skills.
