Mac Miller Records Song With Teen Battling Cancer

Emerging rap superstar, Mac Miller, met with 18-year old, Bobby Stewart, last year at a concert in his hometown of Pittsburgh while presenting a $50,000 cheque to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Now, the ‘Blue Slide Park’ rapper has made Stewart’s dreams come true with a personal invite to join him on a new track.

Miller was very touched by Stewart’s difficult battle with T-cell lymphoma. He decided to invite the teen to join him on a special collaboration at ID Labs studio.

Bobby Stewart couldn’t be happier about the unique opportunity.

"To be with Mac is a blessing. His lyrically are amazing. Hip-hop is my passion. To be able to be with Mac Miller ... he is a Pittsburgh legend," Stewart says.

Bobby Stewart goes by the rap pseudonym ‘Young Ka’.

"He has something real to say, and it's different, and it's cool,” Miller said about Young Ka’s “unique” point of view.

"Feeling like your music really does something for the world makes it all worth it, no matter what. From now on, no matter what happens for the rest of my life, no one can take that away from me," Miller adds.
