  1. TMZ doesn’t even put together a respectable video. A weird breaking news theme, the animation sound effects.

  2. X said it. Nobody cares about you till your dead. I swear just 2 weeks ago everyone was calling Mac Miller trash and his music was trash. Now everyone saying “RIP Legend” smhhhh

    • Sorry but you are wrong I loved him for real….and been listening to swimming sice it came out…so stop fucking generallizing!!!! people are genuinly hurt by this

    • +Llaima Eliza Gonzalez Brouwer

      If you genuinely loved him then my comment doesnt apply to you. Im speaking to the 95% of people that say “RIP legend” when they know only 2 words of 1 of his songs

    • Yes, that’s what happened to Bobbi Kristina, Xxx, Mac Miller, Prince, Michael Jackson and more🤦‍♀️

    • X’s & Peeps following more than doubled following their untimely passing , fake fans arrive once a prominent musician who’s at the pinnacle of their young careers
      dies it’s a sad reality

  3. Rappers really need to stop glorifying drugs, depression, and death. It’s just not healthy. Rip Mac 🙏

    • +maria eileen
      I’m sorry for budding in. But it’s never the only thing we have. We can seek Jesus and n3v3r b3 lonely. I don’t have friends and sometimes I cry about it b3ciaee I do long for a good friend but if I have the Lord in reality accompanying me I don’t need friends. My heart, trust, and my joy lies in Him. I’ve never ever been alone and thankfully I do not need drugs for temporary satisfaction

    • +Candi Cerna I asked for one example of the glorification of death and depression. Just one. You are unable to give me one. As for your reason for not doing drugs, there are over 3000 religions in the world. You believe in 1 of them. There’s a 99% chance that the one you believe in is wrong. Maybe that’s why people aren’t willing to accept it.

    • +GITH
      Ok well first. I’m not religious. I have a relationship with the only God that exists. And to be honest I don’t feel like looking up videos just to send you the links, there’s so many out there. I’m not looking to argue just for the sake of arguing.

    • +d.v.c aquino So you won’t provide me with a single example, and you’re also arrogant enough to believe that everyone else worships a false God, yet you don’t. Adorable. I have no need to argue with you because there’s no way that this conversation ends in mutual edification. Have a nice day.

  4. Really crazy how life is….one day they’re here, the next they’re gone. Rest easy Mac Miller, was so underrated

  5. You know what’s funny? When someone is dead, people act like they were such legends and “love” their music,but when they were alive… They call them trash?? Like what lol?

  6. I’m sick and tired of these random ppl comparing him to demi. And wishing it was demi instead. Demi talked and worked through it. SHE STOPPED. Do u know what stress she went through. Well, that’s probably the SAME for Mac. So for the ppl who wished bad on demi, u should at least know the full story before I start hating.

    • +the_gay_otaku Yes because despite being on TV, being rich and popular one feels life is still hard. Real logic there.

    • +Chibiel Mental illness doesn’t discriminate. If you think that you’re just an idiot. Just because it’s something they choose to do doesn’t make the pressure go away. My mom loves being a nurse, she chose that career. Does that mean she shouldn’t hate her job and feel pressured sometimes? No. At the end of the day we are all still people, no matter how much money you have.

  7. Some people are saying it was Ariana’s fault for him turning to drugs. It isn’t. Stop looking for somebody to blame.

    RIP Mac Miller. May you Rest In Peace.

    • People like to find scapegoats for everything. Oh sure he dated Ariana amidst his drug intake. That doesn’t equate to her being the root of his problems. Even if his failed relationship with Ariana appears to be a clear call for developing depression and possibly going onto drugs, but he was already an addict before dating her and she even encouraged him to stop, but that obviously never happened and may have confidentially justified their break up. Mac’s mentality is the reason for his death. He may have not seeked sufficient help so his condition would have just continuously deteriorated…same thing happened to my mom’s dad. Some people think they’re doing okay and observe people who take drugs can still survive for long. BUT in reality never take chances

    • I know right… because Ariana Grande CLEARLY pinned him down and forced drugs in his system.

      Funny how those same people don’t blame the dealer that sold him those drugs. 👀👀

  8. So many people were saying his album flopped and now suddenly everyone is streaming it…

    appreciate artists more while they’re still alive ffs

  9. Never listened to his music or even know who he is, but RIP. I don’t care what you say I’m not a bandwagon type of person
