Tributes to the Pittsburgh rapper have continued to come in from across the entertainment world, with Mayer being just one of a number of high-profile figures to remember Miller and his music since the news of his untimely death broke.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday (September 8), Mayer – who contributed guitar to the song ‘Small Worlds’ on Miller’s final album, ‘Swimming’ – remarked that 2018 was going to be “Mac Miller’s year”.
“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,” Mayer wrote. “You don’t get there without a lot of work, and Mac had put the work in.
“Mac put in the work,” he added. “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.” Read Mayer’s full tribute to Miller above.
