Mac Miller is getting into the reality television business. The Pittsburgh rhyme-spitter has teamed up with MTV2 for his very own reality show. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the six-part series will follow the rapper as he starts to work on his second album and adjusts to his new life in Los Angeles.

Miller was eager to create a show that will allow his fans inside his recording process of his upcoming second album ‘Watching Movies with the Sound Off.’ “It’s very cool,” says Miller about his series in a press release. “Being an independent artist, I think it’s important to find different ways to bring attention to what you are doing. With ‘Watching Movies’ coming out, I just want to do whatever I can to make sure everybody hears that.”

The Mac-ster also wants to give fans a sneak peak of what he does outside of music. Along with Tree Jay, Q and the rest of his crew, expect a lot of wacky good fun on the show.

“It’s a little look into my life… well, all the stuff you can show on TV,” Miller said. “I have been living in my studio for months working on my album, so the show kind of forced me to get out of that room and go do something entertaining.”

Miller had quite an entertaining 2012. The ‘Missed Calls’ rapper teamed up with fellow Pittsburgh rhymer Wiz Khalifa for the sold-out Under the Influence of Music Tour this past summer.

We wish Mac Miller the best of luck with his reality TV venture.

Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller Team Up on ‘Goin’ Places’

Pittsburgh homies Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller join forces on ‘Goin’ Places,’ a previously-unreleased track on which the rappers dream about bigger things.

The song may have been recorded a couple of years ago, when Khalifa and Miller were both struggling artists trying to break out of the city. Over a laid-back R&B beat, the guys trade verses while a female voice provides a gentle hook about going to different places and seeing different faces.

Khalifa raps mostly about increasing the size of his wallet. The ‘Black and Yellow’ rapper spits, “See a piece of pie, and think how I could make it more / My cake enormous, my paper gorgeous.” When Miller takes over, he rhymes, “We’ve been getting this money since we was young’ns bruh / I’m getting cake, you losing weight just like a tummy tuck / You see me coming up, hit you like an uppercut.”

Khalifa and Miller go way back, having toured together often, and they even attended the same high school, though not at the same time. ‘Goin’ Places’ appears on the Fast Eddie mixtape ‘Live From the 412, Volume 5,’ a collection of hip-hop tracks from Pittsburgh artists. Miller hit No. 1 last year with his album ‘Blue Slide Park,’ while Khalifa’s ‘Rolling Papers’ got to No. 2. They really are goin’ places — it just looks like Wiz is goin’ a little faster.
