Nineteen Great Songs Made By Teenage Rappers in the Last 19 Years

Mac Miller "Donald Trump" (2011)

Label: Rostrum
Producer: SAP
Birthdate: 1/19/1992
Age: 19

The track that catapulted Mac Miller from Pittsburgh's Other Rapper and Occasional Guy on Blogs to the type of artist capable of putting out a No. 1 album, "Donald Trump" works because it taps into an emotion that any teenager who doesn't already have Donald Trump levels of money feels at some point or another. "Hopefully, I'll be at the top soon/For now I'm at my house on the couch watching cartoons," Miller raps, an inspirational guru for those looking for some Supreme on their way to supreme consciousness. Over producer Sap's beat and the insanely catchy "ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-baaa" Sufjan Stevens sample, the line "We gonna take over the world while these haters getting mad" goes from generic rap platitude to triumphant declaration—especially since the song made Trump himself one of Miller's haters. Pissing off America's most insufferable rich dude is something all 19-year-olds should aspire to do.
