It’s been exactly one year since music lost a legend in Mac Miller.
On September 7th, 2018, the devastating news of the 26-year-old’s premature passing came as a shock to his fanbase and the recording industry. The boundless impact Miller had on music and the world became immediately apparent as support poured in from all corners of the globe.
