When the game lost Mac Miller, it lost an artist in the truest form. One need only listen to Mac’s Spotify-exclusive rendition of “Dunno” to behold the scope of his talent. An excellent lyricist, visionary, and multi-instrumentalist, Mac’s work spoke volumes to all walks of life. His passing left a void that’s still being felt, and we can only wonder what else he might have achieved were he still with us today. Though he may be gone, Mac’s fans have since proven their loyalty through a variety of heartfelt and creative tributes, including one from street artist Gustavo Zermeño Jr.
Taking to the streets of Los Angeles, Zermeño Jr. lined a wall with a detailed depiction of Mac Miller, as well as one of his instruments o’ choice – the piano. “Music is a big part of my life but Mac’s music is on a whole nother level for me,” writes Zermeño Jr, in a heartfelt IG caption. “Thank you to everyone that helped make this project happen! It feels amazing to be able to create things I love and truly believe in.”

It’s not uncommon for an artist to be memorialized through street art; we previously witnessed a global celebration of XXXTentacion’s life through a variety of murals. Respect goes out to those putting in the work, and making sure the ones we lost are remembered and respected accordingly. Rest in peace, Mac Miller.https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs1nwKuFIDR
