The sudden news of Mac Miller’s death shocked everyone associated with the rap industry, including Drake who dedicated his Boston concert to the late rapper.
Before immersing himself in his set, Drake took a moment to pay tribute to his “late friend Mac Miller,” who he said was always kind to him in passing.

Miller once famously boasted, “I’m still playing it out the same speakers, I did it all without a Drake feature” on his 2014 track “Here We Go.” Needless to say, both men appeared to be on good-to-great terms before his passing.
Drake wrapped up his emotionally charged message by segueing into “Emotionless” from his ScorpionLP. “We about to go in for Mac tonight,” he shouted energetically.
He among others including Solange, Chance the Rapper, Kid Cudi and J. Cole corroborated the sentiment, that Miller was in fact among the kindest souls in the music industry.
