The first time I had ever heard of Mac Miller was almost ten years ago, when Alex Ludovico dropped a comment on a random post on here about a kid out east that was becoming the next big thing within the post-Myspace rap scene. At that time Mac Miller was putting out the high school equivalent of Frat Rap that was entirely unrelatable to someone a generation or two older than him, but by the time he had worked his way through an MTV series, tuned up his skills as a producer, and dropped GO:OD AM he had become one of my favorite artists.

I'll spare you the lengthy LiveJournal session explaining why his death affected me far more than any other celebrity passing that has occurred during my adulthood. The short version is that Mac reminded me quite a bit of a friend of mine who lost his own battle to drugs at a similar age and, to a lesser extent, he and his manager Q's ability to create a blueprint for indie artist success was an inspiration for what I was trying to accomplish with a handful of artists that I had been working with at the time.

As a way of celebrating his legacy, I put together a fairly lengthy mix of songs that feature highlights from the various stages of his career. If you can overlook some moments of sloppy mixing, the song selection should offer a pretty good payoff. And shoutout to Frawgsy, who let me use his artwork for the cover. Check out some more of his work over on Reddit.
