Mac Miller recently passed (on September 7, 2018) of a suspected drug overdose, leaving behind what seems like an unfinished legacy.

Miller was a popular American rapper beloved by anyone who knew him, listened to him, or was just getting to know his work and story.

A talented rapper from a young age, he released his first mixtape when he was just 14. By the time he was 17, Miller was attracting the attention of some of the best music labels in the country and signed on to ‘Rostrum Records’ in 2010.

In late 2011, he released his debut studio album, Blue Slide Park. The album debut at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, becoming the first independently distributed debut album to do so since 1995.

Before his death, Miller had just released his fifth studio album titled “Swimming” in August. And while his first album remains his major work, most of his albums and mixtapes have received positive reviews.

Miller’s tragic passing has provoked a much-needed conversation about the importance of mental health and the need to better understand people recovering from addiction and to help them get the treatment they need.

In that respect, here are some inspirational Mac Miller quotes to honor him and to help us reflect on the importance of our mental and emotional well-being.
