Mac Lethal released the debut album, Men Are from Mars, Pornstars Are from Earth, in 2002. Sage Francis took him on the Fuck Clear Channel Tour in 2004.
In 2006, Mac Lethal founded Black Clover Records with longtime friend Jeremy Willis, who had been running the Datura Label.
In November 2011, Mac Lethal released a video on YouTube of him rapping over the beat to "Look at Me Now" while he prepares a dish of pancakes in his kitchen. The video became a viral hit and got millions of views in a matter of days and led to interviews on websites like CNN and The Washington Post.
Mac Lethal is also responsible for a Tumblr feed called "Texts from Bennett", in which he purports to divulge text message conversations between himself and his cousin Bennett.
