Mac Miller looks to be the shining light for indie music. Featured in Forbes’ 2012 ’30 Under 30 List,’ the 19-year-old MC revealed severak secrets in his interview for his unexpected rapid rise. But if you thought Miller has made it in this industry, he certainly doesn’t think so.
“I still don’t think I necessarily made it. I think I’ve done something awesome,” Miller said when talking about his success on YouTube, Twitter and record sales. “I think making history is super cool.”
Though Miller is humble, he is the first artist to have an independent album reach the top of the charts since 1995. Blue Slide Park, released on Rostrum Records, sold 144,000 copies in its opening week. The success earned him a spot on Forbes’ first-ever ‘30 Under 30’ List. The Mac Miller difference, his reasons for a most-talked about debut, is the control over releasing content on the Internet.
