Miller was born Malcolm James McCormick in Pittsburgh.

In 2007, a 15-year-old Miller, under the name EZ Mac, released his first mixtape But My Mackin’ Ain’t Easy.

His records aren’t all great, but they all have moments of greatness, moments where Miller challenged both himself and his audience.

Miller has spoken of his addiction to promethazine, and he’s rapped about a lot of other drugs, as well. »
