Thumbs Up for Mac Miller

Print More

Mac Miller (Malcolm McCormick) invaded the Haunt on Sunday night and spewed a torrent of Pittsburgh-bred rap so dope that worries of the snowstorm outside evaporated from the concertgoers’ minds. Besides the inclement conditions, Miller had to deal with a recurring Sunday night problem at the Haunt — a stiff audience. The 58s, Miller’s opener, couldn’t quite get everyone in the mood. Despite their obvious talent and wicked flows, the three dual pairs of rappers didn’t bring the level of energy required. Their rough, Pittsburgh language was appealing, but ultimately did not register with the audience.
