Saturday, January 19 would have marked Mac Miller‘s 27th birthday. Though the rapper tragically passed away four months earlier from an overdose, he continues to be remembered by fans and industry colleagues around the world. To honor what would have been the late artist’s 27th birthday, the likes of Juicy J, Thundercat, Cole Bennett, Hi-Tek, Lil B, and Rex Orange County paid tribute to Miller. His ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande also left a simple “Miss U” on Twitter, which has now been deleted. This is not the first time Grande has removed a post dedicated to Miller; in late 2018, the singer deleted a post of Miller playing the piano. Take a look at Miller’s birthday wishes below.

In December, Mac’s former manager Christian Clancy also penned a heartfelt op-ed, closing it with, “I truly miss you, Malcolm.”

Since his passing, Miller’s family teamed up with Pittsburgh Foundation to start the Mac Miller Circles Fund, which aims to support the underprivileged youth of Pittsburgh in areas such as education and arts. The charity has raised over $700,000 USD donations thus far. Miller’s parents will also be attending the 2019 GRAMMY Awards show on his behalf; Miller has been posthumously nominated for Best Rap Album for Swimming.
