There’s No Place Like Home

When Malcom McCormick, better known as Mac Miller, returned to Pittsburgh for an action-packed Sunday, the city and its fans welcomed him with open arms. The Allderdice grad first came on the rap scene at 18, making a name for himself through mixtapes and videos, before releasing his first album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. And much success has followed since. Mac is back with his fourth LP, The Divine Feminine, which hit No. 1 on iTunes last month thanks to his catchy single, “Dang!” He capped off the monumental month by leading the Terrible Towel wave before the Steelers’ home opener versus the Cincinnati Bengals — where he shared this moment, albeit a rainy one, with girlfriend Ariana Grande and Pro Football Hall Of Famer Jerome Bettis — before performing live at Stage AE after the game.
