Last night HBO showed the first episode of this seasons 24/7 featuring the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers as they journey to play on Jan 2nd in this seasons winter classic. During the show last night we learned that the Flyers play the same song after every victory and that song is none other then Mac Miller’s “Knock, Knock”. As much as I hate the Flyers since i’m a Pens fan, the video below is pretty awesome.

Mac Miller joined the post-gazette to sit down and talk about how important the Pittsburgh shows are to his career. This interview took place just hours before his show at Stage AE in Pittsburgh last Friday.
Before rocking a soldout show in his hometown of Pittsburgh last Friday night, Mac Miller had some fun and kicked some rhymes about the Pittsburgh Steelers to a few of the players that were in attendance. Tight end Weslye Saunders decided to step up and spit some rhymes as well. To close out his show on Friday night Mac started a ‘Here We Go Steelers’ chant with the hometown crowd.

A couple years back on New Years, Mac Miller released a freestyle over A Tribe Called Quest’s classic song “Check The Rhyme” via his fbook page. This was a song I wanted to use for the rare Mac Miller songs series we did a little while back. I had been unable to locate the song for the past few months until today when DJ Clockwork added it to his newest mixtape “Meine Zeit” which you can download here!
