Post Malone is the latest of Mac Miller’s celeb friends to pay tribute to the late rapper. The star praised Miller in a heartbreaking video, saying he was ‘sweet and beautiful.’
As you may already know, Mac was found dead on Friday of a reported drug overdose. He was only 26 years old.
Since the tragic news made way to the masses, a huge number of celebrities have mourned the rapper and paid tribute to him on social media.
For some of them, Mac was their idol, for others their close friend and/or collaborator in the music industry.
Today, TMZ shared a video of Post Malone opening about the painful passing of his pal.
‘He was a beautiful and sweet dude. He loved everyone. I grew up listening to his music, and he inspired me. It f**king sucks.’
But Malone not only admired him, but he also had the opportunity to work with Mac and wishes they could do it more.
‘He was super nice, we played beer pong in the studio, and we were supposed to do an album. I love him, and we are all thinking about him, we miss him very much,’ he added.

Meanwhile, among the stars who took to social media to acknowledge the sad death of their peer, there was his ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande who decided to post a picture of him, without a caption.
The two broke up back in May, and her initial statement read: ‘This is one of my best friends in this world and my favorite people on the planet. I respect, and I adore him endlessly, and I’m grateful to have him in my life in whatever form, at all times, regardless of how our relationship may change or what the universe holds for us! … Unconditional love isn’t selfish. It’s wanting the best for a person even if at the moment, it isn’t you.’
Trolls have been blaming Ariana for Mac’s overdose, causing her to disable the comment option on Instagram.
