As news sweeps across the internet and social media of Mac Miller’s untimely passing at the age 26, so is the shock and sadness from his peers.

Earlier today (September 7), TMZ reported news of his death due to an apparent drug overdose.

Born Malcolm James McCormick in 1991 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the talented MC would go on to become a fan favorite even in as his personal demons continued to dominate the headlines of his career.

Nonetheless, his final album, Swimming, was released just last month on August 3.

HipHopDX sends our condolences to the family and close friends of Mac Miller.

Check out down below to see how much this loss hurts not only the Hip Hop community but the world.

Not sure what to say… Rest Easy bro! You’re energy was bright n infectious! I appreciate your voice and your heart bro. You pulled up to my 1st appearance in Pittsburgh for my mixtape FF2 n we been cool since. We did a gang of shows together, had music together and had some great talks. I relate a lot to you because we had a similar path, repped our city’s n started coming up around the same time. Thank you for your voice and all you addressed from feeling good, love, feeling bad, mental health, anxiety, depression n just things a lot of us identify with. I’ve been off social media more because I haven’t been feeling social, but I looked and saw a DM on twitter from u last week n it’s hurting me I didn’t fucking log on and see it and hit you back! You’ll live forever, Love!

Sigh. I remember you pulled up to my studio in 2010 in an old Volvo packed to the rim. You, Treejay, and Q were on tour, just starting out. You went from that old Volvo, to multiple tour buses, sold out concerts, a TV show….everything man. It was amazing to watch you grow. You always treated my Jamla family like your family, and helped anytime you could. It was YOU that was the FIRST rapper to call me and say…”hey man I wanna take Rapsody on tour with me…she’s fire….” in 2011. Always smiling when I saw you, always love, always good energy, always showing respect……..Always Hip-Hop. Today is a sad day man….a very sad day. Rest Easy Mac Miller….. Gone too soon, lil bro. Love you always. #MostDope

Back in 2011 when me and @9thwonder resumed our working relationship, one of the first people to reach out for a collab was Mac Miller. I didn’t know much about him or his music, but to be a teenager in 2011 rapping over a @lordfinesseditc instrumental from ‘96?!? That alone let me know that his love and reverence for hip hop ran deeper than most. He wanted me to re-sing the hook on a song he had called “I’ll Be There,” a record that would end up being a BIG bridge for me. I sent it back to him the next day and his response to 9th was, “Damn man….y’all don’t fuck around.” Lol. A few months after it dropped, my man @djforge hit me the night of Mac’s show at @catscradlenc like, “Yo man….you got a room full of 16 year olds singing along with you!” Sporadically, Mac would text me some of his favorite quotes from Charity Starts At Home. (His personal fave: “Why rage against the machine when you can just unplug it?” seems kinda eerie now.) We didn’t talk much after that, but I always admired the way he progressed and improved with each record. The hardest thing for an artist to do is sound like themselves. With his last album Swimming, it sounded like Mac had finally found his voice after years of searching and experimenting. 26 is far too young to die, and there are no easy answers or justifications for a tragedy like this. I just hope he’s found the peace in the afterlife that he was seeking on Earth. Rest well, Mac. One love.

This is so wack. Originally, the caption was “we’ll miss our friend,” but that doesn’t at all convey how broken our hearts are. At all. We’re legit crying over here. Our friend is gone, our friend who we laughed with just two days ago and every year for the nine years we got to know him. Our friend who we saw battle things bigger than him and who always emerged stronger for it. Our friend who Jeff stole a pair of Jeff-sized jeans from (even though Mac stood a foot shorter). Our friend whose secret Instagram name was hilarious, who was honest and smart and funny and unappreciated in ways he should’ve been. Our friend who easily could’ve been uninteresting but popular, but who managed to surprise and grow with every passing project. We’ll miss our phone calls. We’ll miss our FaceTimes. We’ll miss the roasts. We’ll miss Bonnaroo, LA, New York and everywhere in between. We’ll miss how our friend took 35 takes to walk out when we shot our scene for his TV show, because he was laughing too hard, wearing a giant wig and daishiki. Our friend who was only 26 years old, Jesus Christ. Jeff still has your jeans. We love and will always miss our friend Mac.

It’s Weird When Deaths Happen In This Music Game Because You Rarely Ever Have Time To Even Digest Nor Process, You Gotta React And Get Straight To Work. Make Phone Calls, Send E-mails. No Time To Process. This Blindsided The Fuck Outta Me Because I Was Just Talking With Your Lawyer Last Night About Pulling Up To Your New York Show at the Hulu Theater. Last Fucking Night. You Always Had A Smile On And The Level Of Jokes You Dished Out Were A-1. I Posted This Pic Last Month And I Said To Myself, “Yo He Looks Good & Healthy.” That’s The Thing, You Never Really Know How Someone Is Truly Feeling On The Inside. Attached Is Our First Interview Together In 2013. It Was Good To Reflect On This Evening. Rest In Power, Mac. #macmiller #ripmacmiller #hiphop #rap #gooddieyoung #larryfisherman

This was going to be Mac Miller’s year. He made a quantum leap in his music. That’s incredibly hard to do, to evolve and get better and more focused while your career is already underway. You don’t get there without a lot of work, and Mac had put the work in. I didn’t expect to play on his album the day he played some songs for me at his house, but when I heard “Small Worlds,” I gave it a short, chirpy little “yup,” which is the highest praise I can give a track. It means we don’t need to say another word, it’s going down. I grabbed the nearest guitar in the room and within a couple of hours we had finished a tune that made me so incredibly happy to have a part in, not to mention we established a nice little friendship. He was so funny I just kind of stopped typing “LOL” back in our texts. Mac was, to me, on permanent LOL status. I gave him whatever guidance I thought I had the right to, having been through the press ringer in the past and wanting him to understand that none of that noise could ever really take a bite out of the music he was about to put out. The last time I saw him, he was playing Hotel Cafe’ in Los Angeles for a crowd of 100 people. He was nervous, and honest about it with the audience. I thought that was so endearing, especially seeing as he would go on to play one of the best sets I’d seen in a very long time. His band was unreal. You gotta know that if you weren’t familiar with Mac Miller, you were about to be, whether you would have seen him at a festival, or a friend was going to catch a show and tell everyone they knew about it (like I did.) Mac put in the work. He made his best album and formed the band that was weeks away from becoming a breakout live sensation. Believe me when I say that. I send my love and support to everyone who knew him better, because what relative little I did, I just adored.

Such a genuine person. Brilliant sense of humor. A true artist. Your spirit is what impressed me the most. The energy you brought to any space you were in. Contagious. You reached out to me at times when others didn’t. You were human. And we shared the same disease. A disease that is out to kill us, and when left untreated eventually will. I’m shaken. Shaken that someone who had such a light can be taken from this world so easily. It could have been me too many times to count. On the surface people that appear to have it all, are not exempt from the gravity and cunning nature of this disease. If you’re in the midst of addiction tell someone what’s going on. Don’t be a secret. Go to a 12 step meeting. Introduce yourself and you’ll be greeted with love and understanding from people that are fighting the same battle. Surrender. There are many paths, but it’s the only thing that has worked for me. I’m scared. Scared of how real this all is. Life and death. Beyond sad. Such a beautiful soul. Sending love to family, friends and everyone whose life was better because of your presence on this earth. Rest In Peace Mac 💔
