Between Mac Miller’s previous stop at LC last October and his return to the venue this Friday, the youthful white Pittsburgh rapper joined Skrillex on the South Oval for a big students-only show last spring. So, a) the dude shows up around these parts quite frequently, and b) college kids love him.
Those at the brink between adolescence and adulthood are Miller’s peers, after all, and while his fresh-faced visage and pop-minded productions cause the casual observer to relegate him to the frat-rap rubbish bin, dude is a genuinely talented rapper. Just ask Odd Future respect magnet Earl Sweatshirt, who recently tweeted his endorsement of Miller after the two collaborated on some upcoming music.
Travis Porter and YG round out Friday’s lineup.
