Rah Mac is the DMV's own, PG-bred, MC/Producer that is looking to give his city the shine it so desperately craves.  Although he did not begin emceeing until the age of 17, and producing by the age of 20, Mac's work has been on display internationally, as he has appeared in numerous national music producer showcases, and on a variety of mixtapes and projects.

Mac started out as a freestyle rapper with The T.E.A.M. Records, a Newark, NJ-based label headed by Ron Sampson (Hov Ditty is what we called him). Working on the campus of University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Mac appeared on campus and web-circulated mixtapes, making his mark with ferocious verses, laced with hard-hitting punch lines and clever wordplay. 

After transferring to University of Maryland College Park, prior to beginning his junior year in college, Mac linked up with Imperial Records, a Baltimore, MD-based label that worked side-by-side with neighboring label Major League Records and its main artist Mullyman. Only working as an artist, it was around this time that Mac started to learn the ropes of producing. 

After a brief stint in Baltimore, with a new focus and newly-acquired skills, Mac took his talents back to New Jersey to work with his cousin and his label, Ivy Storm Entertainment, as an in-house producer. However, looking for more to gain from the game, Mac decided it was time to fly solo…

Mac is now the head of his own recording and production labels - GDP Records and Trak'd Out Productions.  After producing tracks for The Co-Op, InnerLoop Records artist Laelo Hood and K-Beta (“Rolla”), and The Bridge, Mac released his first all-production project, The Liberty City Instrumentals in October 2011.  The Liberty City Instrumentals showcased nearly 20 beats - all produced by Mac - with a premise based on the video game cult classic Grand Theft Auto.  Two (2) months later, Mac released Rah Mac 2011: The Mixtape - a collection of freestyles all recorded in 2011.

Nowadays, Mac is working diligently at getting his online beat store up and running.  You can now license beats produced by Mac at TrakdOutBeats.com.

Mac is also working on his first recorded independent release, which is slated for release in 2015.
