Kendrick Lamar on Mac Miller:
“If I could remember anything about the homie … just the fact that he was a funny, funny individual … That’s the type of person he was — just a good dude. Always made you feel good, just a great energy to have around,” Kendrick Lamar says, having collaborated with Mac Miller on a few different occasions. “He’ll pull up to the studio, give honest opinions. I’d play music, he’d say, ‘I like that. You should do something right here.’ Just whatever, man, and he was just true and selfless about it. Great musician. Great writer.”

“No matter what he was going through, he didn’t make you feel sorry for him, you know? He was strong about it — always kept a smile on his face because he wanted you to smile, too,” he explained. “That’s just something I always loved, you know, no matter whatever personal issues, he gave you that energy. It wasn’t no misery loves company with him … He showed a smile and then you gave that smile right back, it made you feel good. So forever we’re gonna remember the life and we’re gonna remember that smile.”
Mac Miller was a busy man having worked with other TDE superstars like Ab-Soul and ScHoolboy Q, having shown a close relationship with the entire crew.
