Back in 2010 a rapper I never heard of named @macmiller called my phone asking for a feature. He was super gracious on the phone so I googled him and saw that he built quite an impressive following for himself online. I agreed to do the song so we got back on the phone to bounce ideas around. Even though he was a young new cat, he was driven to capture the truest essence of hiphop. He sent me a bunch of beats that felt like classic hiphop and it was my honor and my pleasure to work with him on what became the first of a couple of songs we did together, Family First. Every time I saw Mac on the road or at a party after that it always so much love love and respect. He was pure artist. Pure ambition. Pure heart. @clockworkdj who started out touring with me ended up becoming Mac’s tour dJ. Mac turned the platform @wizkhalifa provided for him into his own, he owned it and he repped for his city of Pittsburgh in a major way. Whenever issues of racist policing or white privilege came to the forefront, Mac Miller was alway one of the select few artists, of any genre, of any race, to speak up and speak out. Beyond being a great MC, Mac Miller made it a priority to show solidarity with the marginalized and the oppressed. What a shining light. He will be missed. #RIPMacMiller

Sigh. I remember you pulled up to my studio in 2010 in an old Volvo packed to the rim. You, Treejay, and Q were on tour, just starting out. You went from that Volvo to multiple tour buses, sold out concerts, a TV show....everything man. It was amazing to watch you grow. You always treated my Jamla family like your family, and helped anytime you could. It was YOU that was the FIRST rapper to call me and say...”hey man I wanna take Rapsody on tour with me...she’s fire....” in 2011. Always smiling when I saw you, always love, always good energy, always showing respect........Always Hip-Hop. Today is a sad day man....a very sad day. Rest Easy Mac Miller..... Gone too soon, lil bro. Love you always. #MostDope
