Mac Miller, also known as Larry Fisherman, Delusional Thomas, Larry Lovestein, EZ Mac, or simply Malcolm James McCormick, is a rapper, singer, and producer with a net worth of $6.5 million. He released several mixtapes in his teens before hitting it big with the independently released number one album “Blue Slide Park” in 2011.
His Mackin’ Wasn’t Easy
Born in 1992 in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, Miller started rapping while he was in high school as part of the hip-hop group Ill Spoken. He released his first solo mixtape, called “But My Mackin’ Ain’t Easy,” at the age of 15 under the name EZ Mac.
Two more mixtapes followed, and Miller soon began to attract attention from record companies. Miller also began to work with Wiz Khalifa, and through Khalifa, met Rostrum Records President Benjy Grinberg. Miller signed to the independent Rostrum label in 2010, and continued to release successful mixtapes under the Rostrum name. That same year, Miller also launched his first tour, and sold out every show.
An Independent Breakthrough
After the success of the tour, Miller had a wave of momentum building behind him. Then his real breakthrough came. In 2011, he released his first studio album, “Blue Slide Park.” The album went straight to number one on the Billboard 200 chart, and made Miller the first artist to land an independent album in the number one spot since Tha Dogg Pound did it in 1995 with “Dogg Food.”
Miller released his second studio album, “Watching Movies with the Sound Off,” in 2013. The release wasn’t quite as successful as his first album, but still peaked at number 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. Miller also brought in several guest rappers and producers like Pharrell, ScHoolboy Q, Earl Sweatshirt, Ab-Soul, Diplo, Flying Lotus, and Tyler, the Creator for this album.
In 2013, Forbes ranked Miller at number 20 on their list of the world’s highest paid hip-hop artists (in a tie with Rick Ross). According to Forbes, Miller brought in $6 million in 2013, mostly through ticket and merch sales from his “Space Migration” tour, which included over 50 concert dates.
The Many Sides of Mac Miller
Mac Miller has many aliases, due perhaps to the many sides of his personality. Miller does a lot of his own production, and on his albums he is typically credited as Larry Fisherman under the production credits. He has also produced work for other artists like Vince Staples under the same name.
Miller also released an iTunes exclusive EP in 2012 under the name Larry Lovestein & The Velvet Revival. The EP, titled “You,” is a series of lounge jazz songs featuring vocals by Miller.
In 2013, Miller launched his own independent record label, REMember Music. Miller has used the label to back his own releases (under several different aliases), and has also signed hip-hop artists like The Come Up, Primavera Vills, and Hardo, as well as singer/songwriter Dylan Reynolds to REMember.
A year after the launch of REMember, Miller’s contract with Rostrum expired, and Miller announced that he would no longer be a part of the Rostrum roster. Both the artist and the label have said that the split was amicable.
Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family
In addition to his own record label, Miller also has his own reality show. The show is called “Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family,” and it premiered on MTV2 in 2013. The show follows Miller around as he works on his album “Watching Movies with the Sound Off’ and sets out to start his own record company.
