Fuck drugs man -- R.I.P. Mac Miller. This shit has to stop. I know our culture has a lot of drug use and I’m not trying to tell you what to do with your lives, but please, if you’re going to do ANYTHING, at a show or a festival or whatever, at least get it tested. Be safe. --— JAUZ (@Jauzofficial) September 7, 2018
