Here’s a first taste of "Stopped Making Excuses," a forthcoming Mac Miller documentary produced and presented by The FADER.
The candid, in-depth film was shot last year in Los Angeles, where Mac was living then; in New York City, where he lives now; and in Pittsburgh, where he spent his childhood and, last fall, celebrated the release of his album GO:OD AM by whipping the Terrible Towel with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
With GO:OD AM, Mac Miller did what not everybody expected of him: he made an incredible record. And in doing so, he completed a very rare transition in rap music: he changed how he’s perceived. “Stopped Making Excuses” chronicles that long and winding trip—complete with years of detours as he struggled with drugs and the baggage of being known as a white rapper—as Mac Miller grows into an increasingly accomplished, legit musician.
"Stopped Making Excuses" comes out in full on Friday, February 5 at 2:00 p.m. EST.
