This West Coast Rapper Has An Interesting Take On Mac Miller's Death...

"It makes sense in retrospect."

Published November 8, 2018

Mac Miller’s tragic and untimely death will be something that many will mourn for some time, especially those closest to him. West Coast phenom Vince Staples had been a close friend of Mac for years and even consoled his mother at his Celebration of Life. He sat with famed radio host Big Boy and discussed the countless talks he and the late Pittsburgh native had about his substance abuse. Yet, the FM! emcee felt Mac's death wouldn't be a topic of discussion so soon.

  1. "He was trying. All you can ask for is for somebody to try," Vince stated

    He continued somberly, he "could never see him dying [because] he was too happy, but to be honest the good ones always die." In terms of his death, which was ruled an accidental overdose, the "Rain" co-star said, "it makes sense in retrospect. I was worried about him, but never to that extreme." Big Boy discussed the video montage where Mac appeared to "not take life too serious," to which Vince replied, "he was bright," and followed up with this special message. "I have a lot of homies that's dead that in five months, their mama by themselves. Not on foul stuff, but if you are someone who really cares about him, I would really suggest that you reach out to his family," he said. Peep the snippet below, and check out the full interview.
