Mac Miller Expected To Make History With First No. 1

(AllHipHop News) Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller is expected to be the first rapper since Snoop Dogg affiliates Tha Dogg Pound to hit the top of the charts as an independent artist.

The rapper’s Blue Slide Park, which came out Tuesday, should top the charts when the numbers come in next week.

The Rostrum Records album is distributed by INgrooves through Fontana Distribution.

Tha Dogg Pound and Mac Miller are the only two rap acts to have achieved such a feat, without the muscle of a major. Ironically, Tha Dogg Pound’s Dogg Food came out almost 16 years to the day, on Nov. 18, 1995 and sold about 278,000 sold according to Billboard magazine. Dogg Food was released via Death Row/Interscope, and independently distributed by Priority.

    Congratulations to this young guy.  Watching some of his videos, to be from Pittsburgh, he sounds awfully southern, though, lol..  Hopefully he’ll stick to some fun themes and not succumb to the gangsta-virus..  There’s plenty of that already out there.  Hip-hop needs some alternatives.

  • That is quite a feat. However, the last paragraph should read “coincidentally” rather than “ironically”.
