Mac Says: "The first time I went to Timebomb, I was 15 years old and I had a mixtape that I'd made myself. I was eating at Buffalo Blues and decided to stop in at Timebomb. I said to the owner, Brick, "Hey, man, I'm a rapper and I have a mixtape that I'm about to drop. Would you push it here?" He said of course. At that point, I'm sure he thought I was a little clown. But he ended up being a very vital person in my career in Pittsburgh. He's always repped me, always supported everything I did. Now that I have other artists that I'm working with, he's supporting them. Brick's put a lot of people onto a lot of hip-hop in Pittsburgh."
