Mac Miller is being commemorated on what would have been his 30th birthday. On Wednesday (Jan. 19), Rolling Stone published a digital birthday card featuring thoughtful messages from the rapper’s loved ones. The likes of Rapsody, Wiz Khalifa and J.I.D. shared birthday wishes and memories of the late star.
“Mac! I wish you were still on this side with us. Your light, heart, energy, gift, and love of fruit snacks is what I miss dearly! I miss you pullin’ up to the stu with the fam, and fans you picked up after a show, so they could kick it while you lit the booth up,” she wrote. “…Always a good time and adventure. True free spirit. Man, you kicked a door in for me early and we gon’ continue to carry your legacy through the doors we still walking through. I still don’t like hummus, btw! I know you would’ve had the illest ‘Dirty Thirty’ celebration ever! I love you forever, Malcolm!”
“I miss you, man. Today would have been your 30th birthday, you were gone too soon,” the “Can’t Stay Sober” star. “I remember our early days back at ID Labs in Pixburgh with E. Dan making legendary music. You were the young homie coming up so fast and representing the Burgh. We’ll never forget you, man. Love you, bro, happy birthday.”
Mac Miller passed away three years ago after suffering an accidental drug overdose of cocaine, fentanyl, and alcohol in his Los Angeles home. Two of three dealers charged with his death have since pleaded guilty to distributing the drugs to the rapper.
