Earlier today it was reported by TMZ that musician Mac Miller died from an apparent overdose at the age of 26. Having created a strong following since he was a teen, Miller’s death shocked not only his fans but his many friends in the industry. Miller has openly battled substance abuse in the past which he also touches upon in many of his lyrics.
Miller was set to go on tour this fall for his latest studio album, Swimming. Below are more artists including Kid Cudi and Wiz Khalifa that have given their condolences to Miller. After doing so, take a read through: “Remembering Mac Miller Through His Music.”

Back in 2010 a rapper I never heard of named @macmiller called my phone asking for a feature. He was super gracious on the phone so I googled him and saw that he built quite an impressive following for himself online. I agreed to do the song so we got back on the phone to bounce ideas around. Even though he was a young new cat, he was driven to capture the truest essence of hiphop. He sent me a bunch of beats that felt like classic hiphop and it was my honor and my pleasure to work with him on what became the first of a couple of songs we did together, Family First. Every time I saw Mac on the road or at a party after that it always so much love love and respect. He was pure artist. Pure ambition. Pure heart. @clockworkdj who started out touring with me ended up becoming Mac’s tour dJ. Mac turned the platform @wizkhalifa provided for him into his own, he owned it and he repped for his city of Pittsburgh in a major way. Whenever issues of racist policing or white privilege came to the forefront, Mac Miller was alway one of the select few artists, of any genre, of any race, to speak up and speak out. Beyond being a great MC, Mac Miller made it a priority to show solidarity with the marginalized and the oppressed. What a shining light. He will be missed. #RIPMacMiller
