Mac Miller was hesitant to turn his life into a reality show, fearing that it would distract people from his real profession as a rapper.
But now he's coming back for seconds.
MTV2 has renewed "Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family," which follows the exploits of the Pittsburgh-born rapper and his crew, for a second season that will go into production this summer and premiere in early 2014.
Season one, which debuted in February, was the highest rated original debut season in MTV2's history, according to the network, ranking No.1 in its time period among male teens for original cable series premieres and No. 3 among viewers 12-34.
On Wednesday, MTV2 will run a marathon of "Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family" season one from 8 to 11 p.m., followed by the premiere of his video for the song "S.D.S.," from his forthcoming album "Watching Movies with the Sound Off."
" 'S.D.S.' -- no one will ever know the true meaning to this song, which is awesome," he said in a statement. "It just feels good to have a song from the album out. The process is finally beginning."
