David McCleary Sheldon was born in Kansas City, Missouri USA, on 25 July 1981 – his zodiac sign is Leo, and he holds American nationality. He’s a rapper, singer-songwriter, YouTuber and an author, who’s known better by his stage name Mac Lethal.
Early life, family and education
Mac was raised in Kansas City by his parents, about whom nothing’s known, as he respects their privacy; it’s said that his father is a gardener, and that his mother is a high school teacher. Because Mac hasn’t mentioned having any siblings, most people believe that he’s an only child.
He became interested in music while still attending a local elementary school, but it wasn’t until he enrolled at high school in 1995 that Mac became interested in rap.
He often entertained his peers with his rapping skills, and it was during those four years that Mac started thinking about launching a career as a rapper.
He matriculated in 1999, and then didn’t enroll at college, but started working on his rap songs; he also worked various jobs to financially support himself.
Career as a rapper
