Last year, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller became breakout stars, but is there room in the vast hip-hop universe for another rapper out of Taylor Allderdice?
Beedie (@beedie412), whose real name is Brian Green, is confident that there is.
“I don’t see it as something that matters whether or not I went to Allderdice. I know there is room for me simply because I’m me,” he says. “Growing up in Pittsburgh, specifically the east side, means Wiz and Mac and I were definitely inspired by a lot of the same things and surroundings. But I wouldn’t know what I would be doing or where I would be if I weren’t doing music. I have my own story to tell about my own experiences, and that is what makes me unique.”
The 24-year-old, who was born in New York, certainly has a unique ancestry for a rapper. His grandmother is Mildred Miller (no relation to Mac) Posvar, who was a famed opera singer and founder of Opera Theater of Pittsburgh.
