NFL Star Darrelle Revis Helped Him Blow Up
Darrelle Revis might play for the New York Jets, but like Mac, he hails from Pennsylvania and attended the University of Pittsburgh. Revis had his ear to the ground and found out about Mac through the Pittsburgh circuit. He brought Mac's music to his agent, Neil Schwartz, who actually helped Mac get a meeting with Jive and Barry Weiss before Mac opted to go the indie route. Mac and Revis even recorded a song together, with Revis going under the moniker, Mr. Manhattan.
