In the wake of Mac Miller‘s death, tributes are being made in honor of the fallen rapper in the form of speeches, songs and clothing. Anderson .Paak took to the stage at the BET Hip Hop Awards last night to deliver a powerful speech about Miller.
While onstage, .Paak referred to Miller as a “legend” who eclipsed expectations placed upon him and his career. “Legends never die. Legends never die,” .Paak said. “And Mac Miller not was, but is, a whole legend.” He continued, saying, “Mac Miller was a humble rock star, he was a rapper’s rapper, he was a[n] actor, a comedian, a musical genius […] Mac Miller was a brother, he was my friend,” he said. “I loved him and I still love him.”
