Mac Miller passed away unexpectedly after a drug overdose in September. The news shocked family members and friends in the artistic community, though the rapper had been struggling with drug and alcohol issues for years. In the moments after Mac’s death, friends spoke about his caring nature and how he seemed to see “sunshine even when it was dark.”
Miller had been very vocal about his struggles with drug addiction and the possibility of facing an early death. In a 2014 mixtape, he rapped, “A drug habit like Philip Hoffman will probably put me in a coffin.” In a 2015 song, he referenced not wanting to be part of the infamous 27 Club.
“To everyone who sell me drugs, don’t mix it with that bullshit, I’m hoping not to join the 27 Club,” Miller rapped in ‘Brand Name.’ Unfortunately, Miller died when he was 26 years old.
