Gerome “Shortie Mac” Thomas, the middle of three children, began rhyming when he was just two years old, freestyling to the sound of his father’s radio. Growing up in Chicago, IL, Shortie Mac, with the support of his family, decided to take his undeniable gift to the next level when he was just 9 years old. In early 2009, Mac began his quest like many in the hip hop genre, performing battles on sidewalks and street corners, challenging men & women twice his age.

Through his father’s affiliations, Mac was introduced to producer Neo Keez who asked him to join his ministry targeting and combating the violent wave of youth killings across the nation. This affiliation has become a focal point in Mac’s message to fans, encouraging all people to ‘’Put the guns down, We don’t wanna fight”

“I do my best at what I do because I love music so much. Music is my passion.”
