In this week’s installment of “Music Video Evolution,” Billboard is taking a look back at the visual offerings from Mac Miller, beginning with 2011’s “Get Up!” and running through to his most recent release, “Self Care.”
Following “Get Up!,” Miller dropped “Wear My Hat” and “Best Day Ever,” the latter of which featured home videos of him as a child, showing off his rapping skills that he clearly mastered at a young age.
The year 2011 also saw the release of the video for “Frick Park Market,” which was filmed at the Pittsburgh-based convenience store Miller used to work at. “Party On Fifth Ave,” meanwhile, followed the rapper and his friends dressed as old men and women, riding around on mobility scooters and having a rooftop dance party.
In 2012, “Loud” and “Thoughts From A Balcony” were shared, as was the kaleidoscope-esque “Clarity” and the Rex Arrow-directed “Missed Calls.” That year, Miller also teamed up with Casey Veggies and Joey Bada$$ for “America.”
The Flying Lotus-produced track “S.D.S” was accompanied by a video in 2013 which saw Miller battle Corey Feldman, while his Ariana Grande collaboration “The Way” followed.
In 2015’s “100 Grandkids,” Miller could be seen sharing a stage with costumed children putting on a school play as he rapped above them, taking the form of the moon, while in 2016, he jumped on a track with Miguel (“Weekend”) and with Anderson .Paak (“Dang”). “Stay” followed, as did another Ariana Grande collab “My Favorite Part.”
“Cinderella” featuring Ty Dolla $ign hit screens in 2017, bringing Miller’s music video evolution to 2018’s “Self Care,” which saw the rapper buried alive, eventually freeing himself from his underground coffin.
