We were heartbroken to read about the passing of 26 year-old rapper Mac Miller this Friday.
this hurts my heart man RIP bro @MacMiller— Khalid (@thegreatkhalid) September 7, 2018
Artists and celebrities have been posting their condolences and support for his family, saying that he was nothing but positive energy and is gone too soon:
Unreal. So sad. RIP Mac Miller ❤️— Shawn Mendes (@ShawnMendes) September 7, 2018
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 💔
And of course, Mac’s ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande posted a tribute. No caption was needed for us to understand her heartbreak:
