Illegal Civilization began the year by celebrating the release of the acclaimed indie film Mid90s with a special commemorative long-sleeve t-shirt. Now, Illegal Civilization is honoring the life and career of Mac Miller with a brief video tribute.

Specifically, this latest Mac Miller tribute clocks in around two minutes and some change, and features various recent shots and clips from different settings, including a video-shoot that occurred as part of a short film that Illegal Civ was putting together; there’s also rare, unreleased footage from Mac Miller’s studio sessions. The aforementioned vignette also includes unreleased footage of the late rapper hanging out with Vince Staples, who spends his time on camera serving up a freestyle.

“There is no Vince Staples music without Mac Miller,” Vince Staples previously tweeted in response to the initial news of Mac Miller’s death. The two stars worked together on releases such as 2013’s Stolen Youth mixtape, which paired Vince Staples’ bars with Mac Miller’s beats.

Earlier in the week, we also received information concerning a potential posthumous project from Mac Miller; during a new interview with DJBooth, producer Thelonious Martin revealed that a collaborative album from Mac Miller and Madlib, Maclib, was recorded before the former artist’s passing.

“[Madlib] just randomly plays a Mac Miller joint,” Martin told DJBooth, recalling a conversation with Madlib at Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. “And I turn to him, I’m like, ‘There’s more of these, right?’ He’s said, ‘Oh, yeah, there’s a whole album. Maclib.’ “If Madlib decides to bless the world with that project [Maclib], he should.”
