Mac Millers vän och manager reflekterar om artistens bortgång: “you were an incredible human…”



“you were an incredible human with an incredible family and friends who were all excited about the path you were on.”  Så skriver Mac Millers vän och manager Christian Clancy i ett öppet brev som nyligen publicerats i brittiska The Guardian. De två arbetade tillsammans sedan 2013 och först nu uttalar sig denne om artistens sista tid i livet och hans eftermäle. Enligt Clancy mådde Mac Miller bra under sensommaren och hade stora planer för framtiden, trots problem privat.


“He was very open about his struggles throughout his career, but he had been fully focused and engaged. He knew the progress he had made, battling his internal dialogue – it wasn’t easy, but he was doing it and feeling the rewards.”



Vid tiden för hans bortgång fanns en turné planerad:


“He was about to go on tour with Thundercat and J.I.D with a superstar band. He knew he was at his best and most comfortable with a band and couldn’t wait to show his fans who he now was and the direction he was fully leaning into.”

i don’t know what to say. it’s not real yet. you were more alive recently than i’ve seen in awhile. i feel like u kept things away from me at times, which ud never admit, but the shift was palatable.. it felt real… the clarity and purpose in your voice about life and ur future… joking about how close ur abs were to a 6 pack (debatable)….. perfect? no. who is. but the demons weren’t steering and the smiles were genuine. maybe at least until u were alone. you were as selfless a human being as i’ve ever known. everyone else’s happiness came first. never rocked the boat. maybe u should of. but that wasn’t ur style. my favorite thing about you is how u treated chloe. that said everything. i think youth had that innocence you craved, free from all the heaviness inside you.. the heaviness that got you. it’s a lesson for those of us that cook our emotions on the inside. a lesson to those who still feel invincible. this is gonna take awhile. you were an incredible human with an incredible family and friends who were all excited about the path you were on. you were so proud of “swimming” – it was the album you wanted to make. u did that and it’s brilliant. i’m heartbroken. i’m angry. but i love you and im gonna feel instead of cook this time. i’m grateful to have known such a beautiful human being whose main goal in life outside of his art was to make everyone around him ok. love u, malcolm.
