On September 7, 2018, Mac Miller shook the music world: the rapper and ex-boyfriend of Ariana Grande died of a drug overdose at just 26 years old. On January 19, 2022, the aspiring musician would have turned 30. Many rapper friends and also music icon Beyoncé take this as an opportunity to commemorate Malcom McCormick, as his real name is.
Wiz Khalifa dedicates touching words to his late friend: “Mac, I miss you man. Today would have been your 30th birthday, you passed away way too soon. I remember our early days at ID Labs in Pixburgh making legendary music with E. Dan. You were the young homie who rose so quickly and represented the town. We’ll never forget you, man. Love you bro, happy birthday. Love, Wiz”
Beyonce (40) posted a picture of the late rapper when he was just a kid on her website, writing, “Happy heavenly birthday Mac Miller.” In the picture, young Miller was wearing sunglasses and a white T-shirt with jeans and cowboy boots.
It hurt songwriter Ali Ciwanro (20) particularly badly. The young artist called Mac Miller one of the best people in the music industry. A warm-hearted person who had only love for everything and everyone. Even today, the talented artist regularly listens to Malcolm’s albums and mourns him.
