I dont know what to say Mac Miller took me on my second tour ever. But beyond helping me launch my career he was one of the sweetest guys I ever knew. Great man. I loved him for real. Im completely broken. God bless him.

I’m so heartbroken about Mac Miller. I met him when he was 18 when I worked for Barstool. So many people said they came to the show just to see him. His fans loved him so much. I’m so sad for his friends and family. He will be missed.
