The US rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was Malcolm James McCormick, professionally known as Mac Miller. In 2007, at the age of fifteen, Miller started his career in Pittsburgh’s hip hop scene. In 2010 he entered into a Record Agreement with the independent Rostrum label and released K.I.D.S. (2010) and Best Day Ever breakaway mixtapes (2011). The first independently released debut album from Miller’s first album, Blue Slide Park (2011), has been a top US Billboard 200 since 1995.
What did Ty Dolla $ign do?
Ty Dolla $ign stopped recently at the NPR to play Tiny Desk and paid a touching tribute to Mac Miller, the late friend, and rapist.
Ty and his regular employees Thundercat and Justus Western launched Ty’s Cinderella’s 2016 appearance with Miller on his penultimate album ‘The Divine Feminine.’ Also, he made a solemn performance with Miller. On the cover, Ty’s success comes exactly one year after he took part in his final full-length studio ‘Swimming’ on the Tiny Desk stage. Miller told the crowd that he was “honored” to give tribute to his late friend before he dived into that album. Later on, he also announced that he brought with him the same band that performed with Miller.
What has Miller to say?
This is right here for the bro Mac, dude. I’m honored to do it with my boys for a year since this show, Ty said. The group accepted each other for support after the show had finished.
Miller was killed by fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol in his system at the time of death in September last year when he was 26. Death was accidentally certified as an overdose. Since his tragic death, the raper has been appearing many times posthumously, among them the 88-key song of “Time” by the Free Nationals and “The Life of That’s.” Last November, Spotify published Miller’s ‘None Of Nothing’ live performance covering Billy Preston.
Filmmaker C.J. Wallis revealed earlier this year that he intended to produce a documentary on Miller but was asked to “hold off” the project by the late rapper’s estate. “The last thing we want is to impact negatively on everyone involved,” Wallis said in a Twitter post.
