The second season will continue to document the exploits of Miller and his friends as they settle into Los Angeles life after moving from Pittsburgh in the first season. The show will find him touring in big cities across the world, throwing a last-minute concert, surprising his family with a vacation and other freedoms that fame brings.

"If you want a show that has a bunch of bad dancing, go somewhere else," Miller tells Rolling Stone. "This show is full of only the best dance moves. What happens when a rapper stops rapping and starts breathing life into a community he didn't grow up in. My homies and I came to fuck shit up while standing on one leg."

The second season premiere chronicles Miller tracing his Irish heritage while opening for Lil Wayne in Dublin. Elsewhere in the season, the rapper visits Paris and Hawaii, and MTV2 is offering a sweepstakes to fly fans to one of the locations in the second season, including Los Angeles and Pittsburgh. That contest launches on July 19th, with more info available on the show's Facebook page.

Even though Miller is enjoying his TV career, he's hardly abandoned recording. Earlier this year, the rapper revealed that he had "four albums that have a foundation and have at least seven songs on each of them." In February, he released a cover of the 2004 Bright Eyes track "Lua." "That song was my middle school depression song," Miller told Rolling Stone at the time. "Conor [Oberst] is one of the best songwriters/storytellers of our time. Throughout the years, that song has continued to speak to me."

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
