Music lost another amazing talent today in Mac Miller. The 26-year-old superstar died from an apparent drug overdose, according to reports.
It seems the entire music world is grieving as we remember a true talent, one of hip hop’s greatest voices, and what many consider a legend. Words from The Chainsmokers, Alison Wonderland, The Glitch Mob Snails and more are a testament to Mac Miller’s impact on the industry.
Jauz speaks up about the real issue here: “This shit has to stop. I know our culture has a lot of drug use and I’m not trying to tell you what to do with your lives, but please, if you’re going to do ANYTHING, at a show or a festival or whatever, at least get it tested. Be safe.”
Miller has struggled for years with substance abuse. Most recently he was arrested for a DUI in May when he wrapped his car around a utility pole.
His latest album Swimming came out just a month ago. RIP.
RIP Mac Miller
Fuck drugs man 😣 R.I.P. Mac Miller. This shit has to stop. I know our culture has a lot of drug use and I’m not trying to tell you what to do with your lives, but please, if you’re going to do ANYTHING, at a show or a festival or whatever, at least get it tested. Be safe. 💔

Didn’t know Mac Miller, but was completely floored by Swimming. Such a beautiful record. Have had it on repeat since hearing it. Such an inspiring piece of art. Very sad day for music. Rest In Peace dude.

I’m gutted right now. Mac Miller was an absolute legend and such a sweet soul. For my friends that do drugs please know there’s fentanyl in basically everything. 2018 has fully broken my heart.
