In addition to this, Mac Miller is responsible for 12 mixtapes.

The singer was known for his prominence in the rap community, and his incredible work with his peers. He is being remembered on Twitter by the likes of Chance the Rapper, Shawn Mendes, J. Cole, Solange Knowles and more. Check the remembrances out below.


Mac Miller’s struggle with drug abuse has been documented before. The singer was arrested for a DUI on May 14th after blowing in twice the legal limit, and his drug abuse was cited as one of the reasons that Ariana Grande ended her relationship with the rapper according to TMZ who went into couples rehab Los Angeles.

It’s important also right now to remind our audience that it is wrong to blame Mac Miller’s ex girlfriend Ariana Grande for the rapper’s death, as many online are currently doing. Drug abuse is an illness and not everyone survives it. Blaming a woman for the bad actions of an ex creates only worsens the tragedy.
