Mac Miller, the frat-rapper who catapulted to hip hop stardom in a record six years is currently on tour, and his tickets are selling quickly for a surprising reason: his ongoing riff with Donald Trump.
“It’s a phenomenon we haven’t seen before,” says a spokesman from Concert Bank, an online third party ticket seller that specializes in concert tickets for sold out shows. “This is the first time I can remember where a star’s ticket sales are in demand because he is in conflict with a political figure.”
Six years ago, Mac Miller was just a frat rapper doing his thing as an independent artist who mostly appealed to teenagers and those in college. But then his debut album, “Blue Slide Park” went to number one on the Billboard 200 without the backing of a record label, and a star was born.
The ongoing feud began between the politician and the singer when, in 2011, Miller released a breakout single titled “Donald Trump.” The single went platinum, and at first, Trump issued a statement saying that he was pleased with the single, especially as it hit 20 million views on YouTube. Trump even went as far as to say that Miller was the new Eminem. But then as the views neared 75 million, Trump began bashing Miller, and saying that he owed him a cut of the profits of the successful song.
Fast forward to today, and Miller recently appeared on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, where Miller bashed Trump in an epic rant.
“The feud between Trump and the singer has only pushed up the demand for Mac Miller tickets, and I don’t see that slowing down,” says the spokesman. “Luckily, Miller has concert dates scheduled until December, but in today’s political environment, I wouldn’t count on there being many seats left.”
In other words, if fans want to see Mac Miller in concert, they’d better get the tickets before the next episode in the feud erupts.
