About the Book:
The book is the first biography of the celebrated rapper Mac Miller, who passed away tragically in September of 2018 at the age of 26. Through dozens of interviews with Miller's closest friends and collaborators, careful, meticulous research, and Cantor's own wellspring of knowledge about music and the music business, readers ride shotgun through the rapper's rollercoaster life, gaining access to an intimate, detailed portrait of a complex artist who achieved his life's ambition, only to be undone, tragically, by his own personal demons.
