Vince Staples spits a freestyle and more unreleased goodies in this tribute video.
When Mac Miller passed away last year, the hip-hop community was at a loss for words. The mood was immediately sombre upon learning of his passing and nobody quite knew how to react. Just weeks prior to his death, he had released the Grammy-nominated album Swimming. To celebrate his life, many of his friends, collaborators and family members held a gathering in Los Angeles with Action Bronson, Travis Scott, Vince Staples, and more familiar faces showing up to tribute the Pittsburgh native. Illegal Civilization has just put together a touching video to honor the life of Mac Miller, featuring never-before-seen moments in the studio with Vince Staples.
In the video, we see Mac bobbing his head while producing one of his songs, keeping an eye on the basketball game in front of him. He wears his infectious smile throughout the entire tribute clip, also repping his Pittsburgh Steelers' jersey with pride. Closing out the footage is a freestyle that Vince Staples performed in the studio. Mac cheeses with each new bar, going crazy over the "25 years by myself, no features" line.
Mac Miller was close with Vince Staples throughout his career, collaborating with him on a mixtape in 2013. Check out the video below. RIP Mac Miller.
