Mac Miller: Tiny Desk Concert
Mac Miller reflects on his journey's peaks and valleys in a boisterous set of songs from Swimming, featuring special guest Thundercat on "What's the Use?"

Remembering Mac Miller

At a Tiny Desk taped last month, the Pittsburgh rapper and producer was both triumphant and reflective. 

It was the first time Miller performed songs from his album, “Swimming,” in front of an audience.

Miller, who developed a ravenous following over the course of five successful albums, died Friday of an apparent overdose in his Los Angeles home, multiple outlets have reported. He was 26 years old.
