As the news of Mac Miller‘s unexpected death spreads, a slew of A-listers are taking to Twitter to express their heartache and disbelief.
Shawn Mendes, Wiz Khalifa, J. Cole, Chris Brown, Jaden Smith and more tweeted heartfelt messages about the late rapper. Chance The Rapper gave a tearjerking tribute, crediting Mac for launching his career.
Post Malone followed Chance’s suit, saying, “I wouldn’t be where I was today without you.”
Lil Yachty says he talked to the rapper as recently as two weeks ago, while famed jeweler Ben Baller claimed they spoke just two days ago and were supposed to shoot Mac’s music video today.
As The Blast reported, Mac died at his home on Friday. LAPD is currently standing by waiting for the coroner to arrive on the scene.
Mac was 26 years old.
God fucking dammit. You were such an incredible person. You changed so many lives. Had so much love in your heart. You inspired me throughout highschool, and I wouldn't be where I was today without you. Never a more kind and sincere and beautiful person. I fucking love you mac.

I’m still in just disbelief. When I was going through my worst addiction problems, Mac was the one who referred me to the rehab center. He never told anyone. Only my wife and him knew. He was an incredible person. I’m in shock.

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.

Back in 2010 a rapper I never heard of named @macmiller called my phone asking for a feature. He was super gracious on the phone so I googled him and saw that he built quite an impressive following for himself online. I agreed to do the song so we got back on the phone to bounce ideas around. Even though he was a young new cat, he was driven to capture the truest essence of hiphop. He sent me a bunch of beats that felt like classic hiphop and it was my honor and my pleasure to work with him on what became the first of a couple of songs we did together, Family First. Every time I saw Mac on the road or at a party after that it always so much love love and respect. He was pure artist. Pure ambition. Pure heart. @clockworkdj who started out touring with me ended up becoming Mac’s tour dJ. Mac turned the platform @wizkhalifa provided for him into his own, he owned it and he repped for his city of Pittsburgh in a major way. Whenever issues of racist policing or white privilege came to the forefront, Mac Miller was alway one of the select few artists, of any genre, of any race, to speak up and speak out. Beyond being a great MC, Mac Miller made it a priority to show solidarity with the marginalized and the oppressed. What a shining light. He will be missed. #RIPMacMiller
Wow. R.I.P. Mac Miller. That was one talented kid. Such a loss.

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.
