Kevin Abstract, Machine Gun Kelly, Kid Cudi & More Remember Mac Miller on Anniversary of His Death

One year after the death of Mac Miller, fellow artists are sharing their thoughts and memories of the rapper.

Brockhampton frontman Kevin Abstract recalled how much Miller inspired him, from the time that he saw him in concert when he was only 14 years old. "he was mad young at the time and i remember leaving so inspired that shit kept me going man," he said.

Machine Gun Kelly lamented plans with Miller that never came to be: "me and Mac should've did that tour together a couple years ago ... the jam sessions ons tage would've been epic."

Thundercat left a series of tweets revealing just how much Miller had affected his life and how "even through the sadness of losing Mac, he changed my life."

"all I have to say is thank you Mac, you were, and still are, a guiding light in my life and growth. I love you and miss you more than words can describe, thank you," he wrote.

Miller died of an overdose on Sept. 7, 2018 at the age of 26. Earlier this week, a man named Cameron James Pettit was charged with selling Miller counterfeit counterfeit oxycodone pills laced with the opioid fentanyl.
