Wiz, real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz, goes way back with Mac. The two of them both grew up in Pittsburgh and attended the same high school.

The rappers were really good friends and had collaborated on tracks "Cruise Control" and "Goin Places."

They even teamed up on a very successful tour in 2012 together, "Under the Influence."

Mac Miller’s death in September 2018 was the result of an accidental overdose, according to a toxicology report released by the L.A. County Coroners Office.

Fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol were found in Miller’s system. The combination of the drugs, which were described as "recreational," caused the rapper’s death.

Mac's death came at the critical apex of his career with his latest album "Swimming" about to be released, which has widely been considered to be his best work.

Mac was 26-years-old.
