Although he was in the music industry for only a little more than a decade, Mac Miller made an impression.
The 26-year-old rapper, who died of a suspected drug overdose on Friday, released his fifth album, Swimming, just last month. He was mourned by his fellow music makers, moments after the sad news of his death broke.
I dont know what to say Mac Miller took me on my second tour ever. But beyond helping me launch my career he was one of the sweetest guys I ever knew. Great man. I loved him for real. Im completely broken. God bless him.

I already see people on here blaming ariana grande for mac’s death. Please do not put that on anyone. This is a tragedy as it is and there is zero need to make it worse. I know for a fact mac miller would not want that. Such a sad day for music.

Anyone who blames @ArianaGrande for the death of her ex boyfriend is a stupid asshole. You should however blame the media for making brand new 5 second long relationships more important than the health of our empty, addicted youth.
