I'm doing research about it and the key seems to be Youtube. He made quality stuff and exploded. Then again, there's a lot of quality music that doesn't explode like his did. #confused

He was the first artist to really use the internet for his fan base. When myspace came out he was the biggest "Myspace" artist. had a few songs out and a mixtape but over a million fans on his myspace page. And he would talk to them and let unknown people produce for him. Show love to fans like that they'll show it back and he got big (for an indie artist)
Im sure being white did help him tho, for that hipster generation like the guy above said.

hes like the nigga to first post a popular thread topic on the IC right as it happens and the shit goes 3K in comments not cause of the t/s but because of the topic. Him being white didn't get him shit. There are whtie rappers that come and go. But wiz was the first white overtly hipster weed smoker to have some boom bap weed beats in his music.
Also he was one of the few white rappers that has a geeky yet powerful prescense on the mike. Most white rappers don't have an effective sound vocally that gets people to think they legit. But Mac had that shit too. Cause most white rappers have that im awkward i box lefty sound when they rap that eliminates their popularity from white fans by default.

Mac Miller is big in 2012 cause Mac Miller is 2012, he's a little non threatening, jewish, hypebeast, fresh prince of bel air nigga that doesn't give a shit about hip-hop and doesn't know what the word integrity means. He's just having fun not giving a shit just like his teenaged fans.
