    And they all suburban white kids

    • SMWTxTV

      Lmao, who the fuck else gunna buy it?

    • tstiffy

      Last I checked, their money is good too. I’d guess most of say, the Carter 4 and Drake sales come from the same demographic.

      He may be Elvis-ing the rap game, but nobody should knock his work ethic. If somebody thinks he’s whack, they should steal his business model and do it better.

      If he’s getting that $6-7 a copy on that indy logic, ca-ching.

      So true

  • Suburban White Kid

    Whats wrong with being a suburban white kid?

  • Guest

    I would have expected more from him but numbers like that independently is astonishing.

  • tmac

    Pretty impressive that he’s gonna sell almost as much as Wiz did first week without completely sellin out like Wiz did. No offense to Wiz

  • Stange Dave

    Mac Miller is hella sorry. Kid can barely rap and he has this many followers.. he is independent because no one will sign his sorry ass… Leave it to the King of Independent… TECH N9NE!!

    • That Guy

      Really dude? So your telling me that no major label wants to sign Mac? I guess that does make sense, why the hell would they want to have the #1 album on their label. Nothing against Tech n9ne, he’s a badass, but Mac’s first album is going to out sell Tech’s career totals. Mad props to Blue Slide Park!

      • KCMO

        Well Tech has sold 1.9 million independenyly over his career, and Mac is only projected to sell 175-185 K so thats wrong. Lol

        • Biggs

          That 175-185K is just his opening figures. Mac Miller is kind of a clown, but the beats are fresh and he can spit, and clearly a lot of people like it. And I’m from KC as well and respect the fuck out of what Tech has done.

    most people who buy it are suburban white kids. concious backpacker rap has a mostly white fanbase, im talking dead prez and shit, nas as well. u think they bumpin recovery in the hood. NO!! there more than likely bumpin rick ross and wayne in the hood.

  • Indiana Smooth

    I would say that suburban white kids buy over 75% of rap albums produced these day, concious rap as well as rick ross, weezy, waka etc. I myself am a former suburban white kid, and don’t see why it’s such a horrible thing for us to buy all this music. It’s also suburban white kids that spend $50-$200 for rap concert tickets.

  • Suburban White Kid # 3

    I’m a suburban white kid and I despise Mac Miller. I think his idea of music is atrocious. I’m almost positive I could have done everything he has done in his career without even trying that hard. He just puts pre-meditated rhymes that aren’t that witty and always talk about being high and not giving a fuck about anything over beats that people make for him. It’s not that difficult to do.

    • Indiana Smooth

      Last time I checked the debut album for suburban white kid #3 wasn’t on top of the billboard charts for any amount of time. I must be mistaken, considering the ease of doing so in your opinion. The fact is its not that easy. I would venture to say that with the number of albums Mac has already sold in 2 days puts him in the top 1% of all artists sales this year. When your album drops let me know so i can make sure to hate on it asshole.

    • Suburban White Kid #4 (Less Ignorant than #3)

      If its so easy than DO IT. Mac has been endorsed by some of the biggest names in the rap game and hes only 19?

    • Pacer

      @ Surbabn White Kid #3 – you could have done everything that he’s done without even trying that hard?

      I guess thats why you’re writing on your shitty keyboard at home having a whinge.

      Get real. Mac’s making mad money roll off this album while your still living with moms & dads. Riddle me that.

  • Realgthat

    I dont see whats so nice about this guy. He isnt that great. But he does have talent. Just not as much as his hype has projected. I will say that the same suburban 14 year olds that’ll buy his joint, probably has tha carter 4 on deck.

  • Guestttt

    just saying but mac miller is more talented than 1/2 of these main stream artists that are out here listen to his music b4 u criticize it

  • LAMABOY

    MAC ISN’T A BAD RAPPER, EVERYONE SHOULD LOOK INTO HIS SALES MODEL AS AN EXAMPLE ON HOW TO SELL RECORDS AND STAY RELEVANT IN THIS NEW AGE OF HIP HOP. ESPECIALLY BEING UNDER ROSTRUM RECORD/WIZ SHADOW HE ABLE TO PULL THESE TYPE OF FIGURES. PEOPLE NEED TO GET OFF HIS SKIN COLOR & SHIT. WHO CARES WHO BUYS THE ALBUM, HOW IS THAT RELEVANT???

    WOMEN BUY ALBUMS!!! HANDS DOWN!!!

  • Tom

    Frat rap is where its at right now, im a typical beer drinking, party student and me and all my friends love mac. To say he’s not good at what he does is completely biased, he’s an amazing frat rapper and is about to do things that sam adams could only have dreamed of. Is his album going to be shadowed by Drake next week, hell yea but for being an independent rapper and staying true to what he believes you gotta give him credit.

  • Who Cares

    Mac Miller has talent. If he didn’t, there would be no Blue Slide Park album release at all. I am sick of all this trolling going on the internet. Why do people waste their time lurking for artists they KNOW they don’t like and just harp on people for it. I’m sorry, but Suburban White Kid #3, the Justin Bieber forums are somewhere else; no one wants to hear what you have to say here.

    Thumbs Up
