Who was Mac Miller?

Malcolm McCormick was born on January 19, 1992, to parents Karen Meyers and Mark McCormick in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States. His father was an architect while his mother was a professional photographer.

Malcolm grew up with his two younger siblings in a mixed religious household as his father was Jewish while his mother was a Christian. The rapper and performer are classified under the Aquarius zodiac sign.

His success as an artist began almost immediately after he graduated from high school at Winchester Thurston, and later, Taylor Allderdice. He was a self-taught musician and played several instruments including the piano and drums, both of which he learned before the age of 6. Malcolm then took up rapping and that was the skill he eventually grew up with.

What was Mac Miller’s Height Compared with Other American Men?

A 2017 study by the American Center for Disease Control (CDC) established that the average height for American men measured about 69 inches which is 5 feet 9 inches. This measurement has seen a steady increase over the last century where American men were said to measure about 67 inches on average.

Mac Miller at 5 feet 6 inches falls into the below-average height category. He stands just three inches below the average American male and is considered short by male height standards. Men who are below the average like Malcolm make up over half of the entire male population.

Ariana Grande is 5 feet tall. The petite pop star stood 6 inches shorter than her late ex-boyfriend when he was alive. Malcolm’s relationship with Ariana was one of the highlights of his life as a celebrity, but their relationship, which began in 2016 crashed only two years later, as a result of Malcolm’s addiction problems.

As pictures of the two reveal, both of them were utterly comfortable in their bodies, and a 6-inch height difference between them wasn’t one of their problems. Besides, Ariana made up for any height deficit with her gravity-defying high-heels.

Mac Miller’s Height of 5 Feet 6 Inches Never Hampered His Success

Malcolm first came onto the mainstream scene in 2011 after he dropped his first mixtape titled, Best Day Ever. After a series of mixtapes and Billboard hits, he established himself as a formidable force in the rap game. Amid all these strides he was making, conversations about his height popped up on a few occasions.

However, Malcolm himself did say in an interview that he was very happy with the body he found himself in and had zero desire to be bigger. It was later discovered that he was only being sarcastic, and did mind his height.

But between being nominated for ‘Best Rap Album’ in 2018 for ‘Swimming’, and being in a relationship with pop star Ariana Grande, it’s unlikely that Malcolm had too much time to worry about his height.
