I originally started to write this a year ago about Mac Miller’s impact on hip-hop for his birthday, before it devolved into a pretentious thought piece I couldn’t finish because it made me cringe and I deleted it. A year later, I finally realized what I started writing about: substance abuse and the downward spiral.
This is dedicated to my friend Coop. We all saw the signs and we ignored them and, for that, I am sorry. 💔
