It’s been three years since Mac Miller tragically passed away and family, friends and fans of the rapper are still reeling from his death.
Back in 2018, the Circles emcee was found dead in his Los Angeles home from an accidental drug overdose due to a “mixed drug toxicity” of cocaine, fentanyl and alcohol. Three men — Cameron Pettit, Stephen Walter and Ryan Reavis — were indicted for dealing the counterfeit drugs that led to his untimely passing. All three suspects were charged with conspiring to distribute controlled substances that resulted in death. Their trial is set to begin on Nov. 16.
Every year, Mac’s family hosts a “Celebration of Mac Miller” and friends and fans gather at the famous Blue Slide Park to celebrate the late rapper’s legacy. The event was canceled last year due to COVID-19, but will be held this Friday (Sept. 10).
On Tuesday (Sept. 7), Juicy J took to Twitter to show his love to his late friend. “R.I.P. Mac Miller. I miss you mane,” he tweeted. “Let’s smoke out & listen to Mac Miller all day.”
Twitter user @Steez_HH wrote, “I just want to say RIP Mac Miller and thank you for all the memories your music has gave me. Here’s a video of him performing one of my favorite songs by him ‘Object in The Mirror.’”
“Three years already, but your music makes it feel like you never left,” tweeted @nickysweetnuts_. “You already know we only bumping Mac all day when I wake up. I’ll see you live in concert in another life, you were really the best to ever do it. Rip Mac Miller forever.”
Social media user @gothamcityrap wrote, “Today marks the 3 year anniversary of Mac Miller’s passing. While it’s a sad day, I take comfort in knowing he will live on forever in his music. Thank you for sharing your gift with the world, Malcolm.”
“Three years without your sweet voice and talent gracing us on Live,” tweeted @lolwitchymama. “I miss you SO much it hurts, Malcolm. you are a huge part of my life & that will never change. RIP to the goat. Easy Mac with the cheesy raps. #MacMiller.”
