Last year was rough for hip-hop fans because it felt like every month, we were losing somebody that we admired. While many of us never meet our favourite rappers, we feel connected to them. They cheer us up, they help us party, and they bring tears to our eyes. Music is so special in that capacity. When Mac Miller passed away, the community was devastated. His last album, Swimming, was an amazing addition to his discography. It signified a moment of growth and maturity in his career. A few weeks after the project was released, Mac passed away from a drug overdose, breaking so many of our hearts.

Over his career, he continued to change his target audience. At first, he catered to a fraternity crowd. Eventually, he evolved to create mature music discussing his mental health. It shouldn't be a surprise to anybody that he was a multi-millionaire when he left this planet. According to TMZ, a portion of his estate has been estimated to be worth $4.48 million. That's simply the sum of various checking, savings, and other accounts, including 200 shares in Facebook stocks. The estimated value does not include some of his personal property, including cars, artwork, and more. It's possible that, with those added, Mac's net worth is much higher.

Mac Miller is nominated for a Grammy award posthumously and we will all be tuning in tomorrow night to see if he wins. His parents have previously noted that they will accept the award on his behalf.
