Happy Birthday: Top 7 Mac Miller Moments That Highlight His Legacy

Nearly four-and-a-half years after his death, Mac Miller’s legacy continues to go strong and be celebrated by his fans. Jan. 19, 2023, marks what would have been the rapper’s 31st birthday, and users are flooding social media with positive memories of Mac.

In honor of Mac Miller, here are 7 moments that highlight the rapper’s legacy.

1. Commitment To Putting Music Before The Hustle

First up is Mac’s prioritization of making good music as opposed to the “hustle” that comes with the industry, as his main goal was to “touch people” through his artistry.

“I don’t want it to be about the hustle. I don’t want it to be about how successful I am independently. I want it to be about how good the music is.”

As Mac’s projects—including K.I.D.S.Blue Slide ParkThe Divine FeminineSwimming, and Circles—continue to be widely praised, it seems like Mac accomplished his goal of making good music that deeply resonates with listeners.

2. Mac Miller’s Friendship With ScHoolboy Q

As far as Mac’s social media presence, his interactions with ScHoolboy Q are regarded as top-tier humor. One popular post compiled various moments of the rappers’ banter from over the years, remarking that their “friendship was one of a kind.”

Another beloved interaction between the rappers shows Mac hyping ScHoolboy up while performing “Yay Yay.” Additionally, they were photographed together for Mass Appeal.

3. Being Celebrated In His Hometown

Mac wasn’t only loved by his fanbase, but his hometown of Pittsburgh also held the rap star in high regard. In fact, back in 2013, September 20 was declared the city’s annual “Mac Miller Day.” The rapper was also presented the Key to the City.

4. Putting His Rap Skills On Display As A Youngin’

Throwing it back to his early days, we have to give a shoutout to a video of a pint-sized Mac spittin’ the lyrics to “Rapper’s Delight.”

Other videos from his adolescence show a high school-aged Mac freestyling with his classmates.

5. Mac Not Being Afraid To Show Off His Dance Moves

Aside from putting on shows with his rap skills, Mac was also known to bust a move! In fact, he can be seen getting down in a number of different clips.

6. Endlessly Promoting Wholesome Positivity: ‘You Have More Power Than You Think You Do’

All in all, one of Mac’s most admirable traits was his positivity, which he was never shy about sharing.

7. Letting Donald Trump Know Wassup

While Mac was all about the positivity, he certainly didn’t shy away from checking Donald Trump. While Mac may have named a song after the businessman-turned-politician back in the day, he was not here for his antics when 2016 came around.

“I only have one thing to say: I f**king hate you, Donald Trump…Make America Great Again? I think you want to make America white again.”

Happy heavenly birthday to Mac Miller.
