It’s been two years since Mac Miller died at the age of 26 due to an accidental overdose. On Monday, the late rapper’s peers, including SZA, Chance the Rapper, and Thundercat, joined fans on social media in remembering Miller’s talent and friendship on the anniversary of his passing. “You have two families, the family you’re born with and the family you choose,” Thundercat posted on Twitter. “The family I chose, Not a day goes by I don’t feel it. I know y’all feel it too. Only bumping Mac Miller today.”

Last month, Miller’s estate released a deluxe version of his K.I.D.S. mixtape, on the tenth anniversary of its original release, with two new tracks “Ayye” and “Back in the Day.” His posthumous album, Circles, was also released in January of this year. “The heart keeps getting broken til it stays open,” wrote Thundercat, who dedicated his April 2020 album It Is What It Is to friend and collaborator Miller, in another tweet. “Love you always Mac.”
