John Mayer Recalls Having Instant Mac Miller Chemistry At His House: “We Had Such A Great Time & Laughed”

John Mayer

Rocker John Mayer is still mourning the loss of everyone’s favorite Pittsburgh rapper. The veteran musician has reflected on connecting with Mac Miller for a past collaboration and spoke on his fatal overdose.

In a new Complex November 2018 cover story, Mayer remembers linking up with Miller for their “Small Worlds” single.

“This is a true story: I started talking to my manager about splits—I gotta start making a living playing on people’s stuff. For years, it would be, like, a really fun side note. I got to Mac’s house and he played me this thing he had just worked on that morning, and I went, ‘Give me a guitar. I’m in.’ I think it had something to do with him having worked on it that day—it was still wide open and fresh. … There are a lot of songs people play for me and I go, ‘Man, I wish I was on this song, but it’s done’… We had such a great time and laughed, and I said to him, ‘No cash. No credit. I’m just happy to do it, man.’ He said, ‘Hey, can I…’ I said, ‘I don’t want people talking about me. I want people talking about your record.” (Complex)

John also shared a few words on Miller losing his life from an accidental overdose.

“I just wish it wasn’t fatal. I just wish figuring out your life didn’t take your life away from you. I don’t have an answer for how to fix that, but once you get old enough to understand how valuable life is, you look at people and go, ‘I just wish you could work this out.’” (Complex)

In September, Mayer shared some emotional words about Miller following his death.

View this post on Instagram

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.

According to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner, Miller, 26, passed away from “mixed drug toxicity,” that included “fentanyl, cocaine and ethanol.” “The manner of death was certified as an accident,” a spokesperson for the medical examiner told Radar in a statement.

[WATCH] Vince Staples Pays Tribute To Mac Miller: The Good Ones Always Die

Two days after the confirmation of rap star Mac Miller’s untimely death was from an apparent drug overdose, Vince Staples has paid tribute to Mac Miller, saying, “The good ones always die.”

Miller was found dead at his San Fernando Valley home on September 7. Earlier this week, his cause of death was confirmed to be from “mixed drug toxicity”, with fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol present in his system.

In an interview on Real 92.3’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood, Staples was asked whether there had been any signs that Miller might suffer an overdose. “He was trying,” he replied.

“All you can ask for is for somebody to try. You can’t always win, you know? Nah, I never seen him dying. He was too happy. But to be honest, the good ones always die. So it makes sense in retrospect, but I was never worried about him.”

See the rest of the interview below.

A few days ago, Grande addressed her past relationships with Miller, rapper Big Sean and ex-fiancé Pete Davidson with her “Thank U, Next” song.

“Thought I’d end up with Sean/But he wasn’t a match/Wrote some songs about Ricky/Now I listen and laugh/Even almost got married/And for Pete I’m so thankful/Wish I could say thank you to Malcolm [Miller]/Cause he was an angel” (“Thank U, Next”)

(RadarOnline)

Some recently reports claimed Miller’s September death may have had an impact on her Davidson engagement breakup.

Sources close to AG and PD tell us … Ariana was in an incredibly dark place following her ex-boyfriend’s apparent fatal overdose. She didn’t blame herself — she feels she did everything she could to get him sober — but it left her an emotional wreck. In the aftermath of Mac’s death, our sources say Ariana realized a couple of things — she couldn’t be fully invested in her relationship with Pete, and she had rushed into a looming marriage way too fast by getting engaged. (TMZ)

Mac Miller Cause of Death Revealed: Fentanyl, Cocaine, Alcohol Overdose

Mac Miller’s untimely death caught us all by surprise in September. All we knew is that he died from a drug overdose, up until now.

The L.A. County Coroner’s Office released its toxicology findings, and according to the report Mac died from “mixed drug toxicity,” including cocaine, fentanyl, and alcohol. The coroner said his death was an accidental overdose.

TMZ reports that Miller’s assistant found him the following morning after a wild party in a “praying position,” and he was already blue according to the assistant during the 911 call. There was a 1/4 abrasion on his nose, and he was bleeding from one nostril. Additionally, an empty bottle of alcohol was found near his body, and in his right pocket there was a rolled up $20 bill with powdery white residue on it. There were also two baggies of white powder, and a “linear white powdery residue” on the iPad in his home studio.

The coroner says there wasn’t a lethal amount of drugs, but it’s the combination that killed Mac Miller.

Mac Miller‘s cause of death has been revealed. According to the coroner, the later rapper died of a toxic mix of fentanyl and cocaine. 

TMZ reports that per the L.A. County Coroner’s Office, Mac died “mixed drug toxicity” with the aforementioned drugs as well as alcohol. His death was deemed an accidental overdose.

The additional details are quite disturbing.

According to the report, his assistant found Mac in a “praying position” on his bed, kneeling with his face on his knees. Although initial reports say the scene was swept, an empty bottle of alcohol was found in his nightstand and a bottle prescription pills was found in his bathroom. That’s no big deal but the listing of pills found in the home— Xanax, oxycodone, hydrocodone and Adderall—says otherwise.

Ultimately there was not enough of one drug in his system to be fatal, but it was the combination that proved to be lethal.

Rest in peace Mac Miller.

The native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania had recently released his fifth album Swimming, a body of work that he made with J. Cole, Jon Brion, Tae Beast, and longtime producers, ID Labs.

A cause of death has now been released to the public. TMZ has obtained the toxicology report from the L.A. County Coroner’s Office. Miller, born Malcolm McCormick, died from a reported overdose. Investigators found Fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol in his system. The dosing was reportedly less than a lethal amount.

Ariana Grande Addresses Big Sean, Pete Davidson & Mac Miller W/ Surprise New Song

Ariana Grande

Pop star Ariana Grande isn’t biting her tongue. The crooner has put her personal life on full display with the unexpected release of her new “Thank U, Next” song.

On the new track, Grande addresses late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller and former fiancé Pete Davidson.

“Thought I’d end up with Sean/But he wasn’t a match/Wrote some songs about Ricky/Now I listen and laugh/Even almost got married/And for Pete I’m so thankful/Wish I could say thank you to Malcolm [Miller]/Cause he was an angel” (“Thank U, Next”)

Hours before it dropped, buzz and speculation developed on Grande’s personal song.

Record label sources tell TMZ, the overarching theme of the song — titled “Thank u, next” — is empowerment … what she’s been through in her relationships and other experiences. We’re told it is not a diss track. Our sources say she specifically names Pete, Mac and others … but she doesn’t go after Pete the way she did earlier this week after he publicly joked about their breakup. She had accused him of being a hypocrite … pretending he wasn’t into being in the spotlight yet hanging on for dear life. (TMZ)

On “Saturday Night Live,” Pete Davidson kept things 100 on the split.

Ninety minutes later on “Saturday Night Live,” Davidson made his own statement during the show’s “Weekend Update” segment, concluding his raucous guest spot by saying, “I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is, it’s nobody’s business. Sometimes things just don’t work out and that’s okay. She’s a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world. Now please go vote on Tuesday, alright?” (Variety)

Recently, Pete Davidson addressed their publicized split during a charity event.

Davidson further addressed his breakup, saying, “Well, as you can tell, I don’t want to be here. There’s a lot going on. Anybody have any open rooms? Anybody looking for a roommate? I’ve been covering a bunch of tattoos, that’s fun. I’m f*cking 0-for-2 in the tattoo department. Yeah, I’m afraid to get my mom tattooed on me because she’d leave.” (The Hollywood Reporter)

Lil Xan Makes Sacrifices To Piece Together Mac Miller Tribute Album

Lil Xan

Rap newcomer Lil Xan is taking Mac Miller‘s death pretty seriously. The hip-hop rookie has nixed a few concerts to give himself ample time to recharge after working on a tribute album in the late rapper’s memory.

According to reports, Xan has canceled shows as a result of working 24/7 on the new Miller-dedicated project.

Sources close to the Cali MC tell us the reason Xan axed 5 upcoming shows — mostly in Texas and the Midwest — is to recharge after long hours in the studio recording a new album called, “Be Safe” … a tribute album to Mac, who died in September. We’re told Xan’s been working nonstop on it — if he wasn’t onstage somewhere, he was in the studio trying to perfect the project — and, at this point, he just feels burnt out. (TMZ)

Over the past few days, Xan has teased fans with the project’s artwork and teaser music.

This week, various hip-hop artists pulled through for a Mac Miller tribute concert in California.

Last month, the rapper’s ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande hit up her Instagram Story with a clip of Miller getting dressed up.
