The sudden passing of Mac Miller rocked the industry like no other when he was pronounced dead on Friday at the young age of 26. Post Malone, J. Cole, G-Eazy, Drake, Elton John, and endless more acts have paid tribute to the Mac by adding in a special set as they tour the world, or just taking to social to share a moment that Mac showed his true genuine colours as a friend and collaborator. 

John Mayer, who worked with Mac on his Swimming track "Small Worlds" shared a heartfelt message about his friend and how this would have been his year since "he made a quantum leap in his music."

"That’s incredibly hard to do, to evolve and get better and more focused while your career is already underway. You don’t get there without a lot of work, and Mac had put the work in," he wrote. "[...]Mac put in the work. He made his best album and formed the band that was weeks away from becoming a breakout live sensation. Believe me when I say that. I send my love and support to everyone who knew him better, because what relative little I did, I just adored."
