Mac Miller’s Parents Plan To Accept Their Son’s ‘Rap Album Of The Year’ Award At The Grammys

The parents of deceased Pittsburgh rap mainstay Mac Miller will be in attendance at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Miller’s Swimming album was posthumously nominated for Album Of The Year and according to TMZ, the Millers will be present to accept the award in his name if he wins.

Tragedy struck last year when Miller passed away from an accidental overdose in his California home. He was only 26 years old.

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,” according to RadarOnline.

Last year, several rappers paid tribute to the fallen rapper through song, including Travis Scott and Post Malone.

Ariana Grande Posts – Then Deletes – Mac Miller Tribute

Ariana Grande Mac Miller

Pop diva Ariana Grande still has late boyfriend Mac Miller on her mind. The crooner hit up social media this week to bid farewell to 2018 and remember the dead rapper one more time.

On Monday, Grande shared an Instagram Story post showing Miller on a piano but deleted the post shortly thereafter.

Ariana Grande clearly has Mac Miller on her mind as 2018 wraps up. The singer took it to her Instagram stories to share a photo of her ex-boyfriend playing a Baldwin piano—which was originally posted in September by photographer Stefan Kohli. (Cosmopolitan)

Over the past few months, Ariana has kept Miller’s memory alive with multiple social media posts.

While Grande’s tributes to Miller have mostly been photographs or brief videos, she honored him and others in her recent hit song “Thank U, Next” — calling him “an angel” — and also posted an emotional note to him in September, which reads: “i adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will,” she wrote. “i can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. i really can’t wrap my head around it. we talked about this. so many times. i’m so mad, i’m so sad i don’t know what to do. you were my dearest friend. for so long. above anything else. i’m so sorry i couldn’t fix or take your pain away. i really wanted to. the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. i hope you’re okay now. rest.” (Variety)

This past Thanksgiving, Grande shared a throwback pic of herself alongside Miller.

In November, Grande remembered Miller’s life and shared her disbelief in his death.

On Tuesday, a fan sent Grande a recorded video from Miller’s Instagram Live on Aug. 9, in which he can be heard listening to Grande’s song “R.E.M.” off of her Sweetener album. “Hey @ArianaGrande here’s a video of @MacMiller listening to R.E.M during his Instagram live from August 9th before it was released,” the fan tweeted along with the video. “We had to stan the best song from Sweetener!” After watching, Grande replied, “his voice and laugh. he is supposed to be here. thank u for finding this.” (E!

Family Of Mac Miller Requests Late Rapper’s Financial Asset Info

Float Fest 2017 - Performances

The sudden passing of Mac Miller earlier this year came at a time when his career was undoubtedly on an upward arc. Now, the late Pittsburgh rapper’s family is requesting documents to examine the value of his estate.

The Blast reports:

On November 26, documents were filed in the “Small World” rapper’s estate requesting a judge to appoint a probate referee who can appraise the assets of Miller’s estate, including cash, real estate and personal property.

The documents reveal the estate has not been able to figure out how much money was left behind, the value of his royalties or how much his name and likeness is worth in death.

The appraiser is also expected to give an estimate of how much Miller’s music royalties may be worth in the future. Once a value is given, the estate may be closer to figuring out which beneficiaries, including the late rapper’s brother and parents, will receive.

The outlet adds that an attorney has been hired to oversee the process and that Miller’s parents and brothers are the known trustees.

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.

[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.
