[Hip Hop News Now] Mac Miller concert pays loving tribute

A concert featuring Pittsburgh emcee Mac Miller was scheduled to take place Halloween night, however an apparent overdose on September 7 took his life way too soon. On Wednesday night, a version of that show went on in Los Angeles without him, in his honor.

During the one-night-show, titled Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life, artists such as Travis Scott, SZA, Chance the Rapper, and John Mayer showed out for the late-rapper, with the evening’s proceeds going toward a charity formed in Miller’s name, Mac Miller Circles Fund.

Long story short: The music industry’s finest played Miller’s songs and songs about him. There was no focus on drugs or his famous ex. And…Mac Miller was the final performer…yes…Mac Miller.

Wednesday night’s show ended with a final spotlight shone on a lone mic stand, just before the dimming of the stage lights.

Check out the ending below to last night’s tribute to Malcolm McCormick aka Mac Miller.

         

Even Miller’s ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande, paid a touching tribute to Miller last night on Instagram, as she appears be wearing his hoodie while cuddling his dog.
