To honor the holiday season, Mac Miller traveled back home to the Burgh to spend some time with his family. Of course, the McCormick family is unlike many other families. The time spent together involved the 4 person family having fun with some electric instruments and making music.
After seeing the pic on instagram, MTV created a comparison picture that pitted Mac’s family against the famous Partridge Family. The McCormick’s might be slightly less groovy (and hairless), but the comparison is something to behold.
It is Tuesday, December 17th, and that means that Mac Miller has released another brand new album. This time the Pittsburgher takes some live cuts from his “Space Migration Tour” and releases it on itunes as, ‘Live From Space.’ These tracks are all musical masterpieces and feature Mac singing and rapping his vocals over The Internet’s live music.
