Just a few weeks after the release of his album, “Swimming”, Mac Miller passed away.  The Pittsburgh rapper was known for his clever lyricism and his musical innovation within the hip-hop genre, constantly stretching the boundaries of what can be defined as “hip-hop”.  Just yesterday, a Mac Miller tribute was hosted in Los Angeles featuring many of his friends and collaborators.  The concert was called “Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life”.  Notable appearances include performances by Travis Scott, Chance The Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt, John Mayer, and Thundercat, a long-time collaborator and bass-virtuoso.  Both Mayer and Thundercat made contributions to his newest album, with Thundercat providing the bassline for “What’s The Use” and John Mayer playing guitar on “Small Worlds”.  The concert benefited the “Mac Miller Circles Fund”, created by Mac Miller’s family to assist young kids who want to create art, but do not have the means to do so.  The show has been very well-received, and fans feel that it was a proper tribute to one of the greatest musical artists of the decade.
