Pittsburgh’s Mac Miller to Perform at PSU

After playing alongside Wiz Khalifa a year ago in the Bryce Jordan Center, Mac Miller will have the stage to himself when he comes to the BJC later this spring.

As originally reported by State in the Real, the Pittsburgh-born rapper Miller, an up and coming star in the hip hop world, is set to headline a show April 3rd at the BJC.

Miller, who built a loyal following through social media prior to his first official album release, is probably best known for his singles “Donald Trump” and “Nikes on my Feet.” Miller’s debut album, Blue Slide Park, was released in November to mixed reviews, but it vaulted to the number one slot on the Billboard 200 chart in it’s first week.

Miller worked his way through the Pittsburgh rap scene, winning a pair of Pittsburgh hip-hop awards before joining Maroon 5 for remix of “Moves Like Jagger,” and finally, being named to hip-hip magazine XXL’s freshmen class in 2011. He has a unique style that combines his musical background as a multi-instrumentalist with his hip hop influences. He lists artists like Big L and Outkast as major influences.

The April 3rd show is slated for 8 p.m. and tickets will go on sale starting at 10 a.m. next Friday on Ticketmaster and at BJC ticket office locations. Tickets will cost $37.50 plus fees.

Switch the Right Decision

I’m probably the only person who has spent my entire college career almost evenly divided between working for The Daily Collegian and Onward State. I feel like this has given me a unique perspective on Penn State’s media scene. And I’ve learned a great deal from both media outlets.
