IHeart captured all the details noting several artist paid tribut to Mac. Chance The Rapper was choked up saying “Mac, thank you for so many different things. Thank you for the music you made; thank you for the music that you provided other people with, for the opportunities that you provided me with, but overall, for the friendships that you built through your music and through your artistry.”
SZA also paid tribute to Mac saying, “Without Mac, there would be no me, like half of us [performing]… God bless you we love you so much. Mac.”
Radio host Zane Lowe spoke on behalf of the Pittsburgh-born rapper’s parents, Karen Meyers and Mark McCormick, asking the crowd to take a moment of silence for the victims of the Pittsburgh Synagogue Massacre. “Malcolm McCormick’s family has requested, just as Malcolm would have, that we all take a brief moment of silence to acknowledge those affected by the tragic events in Pittsburgh last week, and to strongly condemn these violent acts that have no place in our communities,” Zane said.
In tribute a video of Mac Millers life was gifted to the crowd with shout outs from artist like, Pusha T, Pharrell, Lil Wayne, Tyler the Creator, and A$AP Ferg.
John Mayer performed Mac’s song “Small Worlds” off of his fifth and final album, Swimming, and kept Mac’s original vocals from the song.
