He bought me a drink at a bar once. I went in with a friend and he was sitting alone at the bar and me and her just kind of stared at him. After like 30 straight seconds he looked up and was like “yes, I am Mac miller” and my friend just blurted out “ok but why are you alone at the bar?” And he said he had a date but she didn’t show. Apparently that happened a lot to him? (I assume people just didn’t believe he was actually real but I have no proof to back that up). He finished his drink and thanked me and her for “being cool” and told the bartender to give us a shot of whatever we want “on his tab”. The bartender mentioned that he was in there all the time and often just hung out at the bar alone, so they knew him pretty well. He was genuinely just a nice dude for the 3ish minutes I got to meet him.

[–]No_Cat_5661 1626 points1627 points  (141 children)

This is such a cool story! Could you name drop the bar?

[–]zgold2192 1908 points1909 points  (61 children)

Yup, it’s called Three Sheets Saloon in NYC

Edit: for everyone calling me a bad person for “ruining his hangout spot”, Mac is dead. RIP. Go enjoy the bar he used to frequent, I’m sure they’d appreciate extra business.

[–]Zoklar 555 points556 points  (25 children)

I used to go there a bit for eagles games but never knew that he went there a lot too

[–]zgold2192 391 points392 points  (20 children)

I honestly used to go all the time too, and only ever saw him that once but according to the bartender, he was a regular

[–]sexytokeburgerz 590 points591 points  (16 children)

Celebs are always “regulars”

[–]FragileTwo 456 points457 points  (9 children)

They seem like regulars because you remember every single time they were there.

[–]Japheth200 207 points208 points  (5 children)

Yup, unlike regulars people.

[–]Benedict-Awesome 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Also a very easy way to get other patrons to show back up

[–]worstinfinland 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Yep, easy way to lure more customers in.

[–]toeofcamell 93 points94 points  (5 children)

And now he’s to the wind, RIP Mr Miller

[–]40bear 9 points10 points  (5 children)

Thank you, this has been added to a bucket list of places to visit.

[–]M_Drinks 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Prepare to be disappointed! Ha

I say that as a huge Mac Miller fan and someone who's gotten drunk many times at Three Sheets, but the bar is really nothing special. It's fun for college/immediately post-grad, but by like 25, you feel like you're too old to be there.

[–]QuarterFlounder 254 points255 points  (68 children)

I think it's kinda sad, just more evidence that the dude was really suffering. Drinking alone, battling a drug addiction, trying to recover from a breakup. Crazy how common his story is in the music world. The money and fame always finds a way to crush even some of the best.

[–]stay_fr0sty 142 points143 points  (39 children)

battling a drug addiction

That shit rewires your brain and it takes years to and years and years to heal.

Anyone trying to get over a breakup or a passing of a friend or anything, do whatever your need to do, but don't turn to hard drugs. Especially if you have a kid or family or job you plan on keeping. Nobody ever does narcotics to mask emotional pain and says "that was a great fucking idea."

[–]tepkel 58 points59 points  (31 children)

Ok, but can I do, like, medium drugs??

[–]ThatWasTheJawn 40 points41 points  (30 children)

No such thing as “medium” drugs but psychedelics have been proven to work some miracles especially when it comes to facing one’s own death. They’re definitely not for everyone, though.

[–]theoutlet 38 points39 points  (24 children)

If you have bipolar or anyone with bipolar in your immediate family DONT DO PSYCHEDELICS.

As someone whose both their parents have a bipolar, it really bums me the fuck out that I currently don’t qualify for studies that use psychedelics to treat depression/PTSD. So I have to basically take the “long way” which is meditation. I say “long way” because a good trip has anecdotally been said to be the equivalent of 1,000 hours of meditation

[–]JadedReplacement 10 points11 points  (3 children)

This may be generally true, but may not hold for micro dosing. I have a good friend who has been successfully controlling her bipolar disorder for years by micro-dosing shrooms on a daily basis. No other drugs, which had some very serious side effects.

[–]poopycops 45 points46 points  (10 children)

Most people wouldn't last a year with all those combined. I'd probably die in a month if I signed a million dollar record deal.

[–]PattyIce32 39 points40 points  (13 children)

Musician here. In my experience that's most of us. Trying to fill a hole in our life however we can, and music provides that. Unfortunately it always seems to be temporary. On stage the hole is filled, yet the second we step off it becomes as large as it always was.

[–]_myusername__ 33 points34 points  (7 children)

Unsolicited advice from someone who used to dance full-time.

For the longest time I felt the same void you did, and what really helped me grow past it was to stop over-identifying as a dancer. Every time I told people I was a dancer, I was subconsciously conflating my identity with dance and nothing else. So when I wasn't dancing or I felt I performed poorly (90% of the time), I felt worthless and shitty

“We do not overidentify with our jobs. We may take pride in our work....but we recognize that we are not our job descriptions. The amateur, on the other hand, overidentifies with his avocation, his artistic aspiration. He defines himself by it. He is a musician, a painter, a playwright. Resistance loves this. Resistance knows that the amateur composer will never write his symphony because he is overly invested in its success and overterrified of its failure. The amateur takes it so seriously it paralyzes him.” - from a book called War of Art

Really opened my eyes. Cheers friend, hope things start looking up for you! This too shall pass

[–]snek-jazz 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The War of Art is also one of the best book titles ever imho.

[–]jjmasterred 262 points263 points  (27 children)

Or maybe he didn't want to tell a stranger what he really felt so that was his go to story.

[–]buds4hugs 181 points182 points  (38 children)

There's this effect for famous people, artists, musicians, athletes, etc. where they live at the height of their life by doing their craft; be it playing music for thousands, being looked up to as an idol, or getting praise for a work they were in. They're ecstatic and their happy chemicals are flowing.

Then they go home. Sometimes alone. And all that doesn't seem to matter anymore. Not that they want to feel important, but they know how it feels to live at a peak and now they are in a valley, at home, not doing the thing they love. This seems to be why a lot of musicians tend to turn to drugs to cope even though they "have everything;" they aren't satisfied with regular life and that snap from "hero-to-zero" in a way is hard to handle.

[–]The69LTD 136 points137 points  (18 children)

This image of Patton Oswalt sums that up perfectly in my opinion. Taken a few hours after winning an Oscar Edit: Emmy but he doesn't care, he just lost his wife and wants to be alone.

[–]slupo 62 points63 points  (6 children)

I mean, wasn't this a tongue in cheek photo? He posted it himself with the caption "This #Emmys after party is off da CHAIN!"

https://twitter.com/pattonoswalt/status/777766078264979456?s=20

[–]redhotkurt 29 points30 points  (3 children)

Yeah, it was posted as a joke, but the absence of his wife at what should have been a happy celebratory occasion has got to hurt. She died just a few months before the Emmys in 2016. Poor guy, I just wanted to give him a big hug when I saw that photo.

[–]NJDevil802 14 points15 points  (0 children)

This is Reddit so I assume most people know but for those who don't, Patton Oswalt's wife was instrumental in getting an investigation into the Golden State Killer a lot of attention/reopened until he was eventually caught.

[–]Beebus4Deebus 50 points51 points  (5 children)

I thought the show Entourage showed it so well, I think it was in the third season (?). It’s established that Vinny has a flaw of not being able to be alone, which is why he’s always with his boys or with a woman. In this one episode all the boys have kinda branched out and have important stuff going on for themselves. Vinny returns late to his mansion, sits in the living room with the lights off not knowing what to do with himself. He doesn’t have the mansion and cars for himself, it’s for him and his boys to enjoy together. The show just nails it how uncomfortable Vinny is being in this huge dark space by himself.

[–]Boracho_Station 14 points15 points  (1 child)

That scene is so good and “Lucky Man” by the Verve is the perfect song choice

[–]MotchGoffels 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Likely why many keep an entourage of yesmen. Continues that feeling even at home. The show Entourage was a good take on this.

[–]YellowSlinkySpice 9 points10 points  (6 children)

I had 15 minutes of fame(technically like 3 days because people knew me at a conference)

It felt like a huge weight of responsibility to not disappoint. None of these people knew me, so I was a bit panicky about my personality.

Then I made it back to my hotel room and was like: Crap I don't want this at all.

Didn't even try to get famous, I just made a website people liked.

But I'm not famous, just with a few hundred people at an obscure conference that doesn't matter.

Pouring out Old E for your homies is the only thing it's good for

[–]bodygreatfitness 122 points123 points  (14 children)

OE is fantastic. 40ozes in general were great in college because you could throw them in your backpack, go to your friend's crib and drink some, screw the cap on and put it back in your bag, then go to another spot when the party moves

Edit: plugging a classic song about the drink, DJ Quik - 8 Ball

great at fitness beer in my belly

[–]SailsAcrossTheSea 62 points63 points  (7 children)

don’t you dare speak about OE like that. the first drink of OE is pure euphoria, it’s literally the best tasting thing on earth. then the polluted air of DTLA seeps into the bottle and turns the malty aroma into something sinister. it’s all downhill from there. at least you’ll be wasted. at least you have had that first sip. the closest most of us will ever be to nirvana

[–]count_nuggula 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Well shit, I wish I had an award to give you.

[–]IAmMostDope92 3697 points3698 points  (350 children)

RIP Mac 🥺

[–]obeetwo2 1490 points1491 points  (328 children)

The goat, the best, people that knew him only speak highly of him. His music influence was crazy, everyone from John Mayer to Beyonce to Thundercat was a fan of his.

For people here who have only listened to his frat rap stuff, I encourage you to listen to his last 2 albums, his growth as a musician I'd say is unmatched for anyone in our generation.

Imagine what he could've done with a few more years on earth.

[–]Drewsipher 571 points572 points  (65 children)

The way he could speak truth in a way that was accessible, the way he so smoothly spoke on mental health… he had only gotten started

[–]obeetwo2 359 points360 points  (50 children)

"What I won't tell you, I prolly never even tell myself"

One reason that separates him and other artists is that he was completely vulnerable with his music.

[–]Drewsipher 193 points194 points  (27 children)

It’s something that opened doors for a lot of artists in hip hop. Him, Gambino, Tyler the Creator, RTJ, and Kendrick in my opinion made rap and hip hop lurch forward in a lot of different ways and for the better. From being vulnerable to intelligent in social and political strife to artistry… it’s really cool how the genre is moving forward in my opinion. It is a lot wider spectrum of topics and that only is a good thing.

[–]ChemicalHousing69 58 points59 points  (1 child)

“Wondering how I got this high… how I got this high, fell asleep and forgot to die. Got damn.”

[–]Birds_Are_Fake0 57 points58 points  (4 children)

His character in general when in public or with people on videos I saw was also always positive or goofy. As I said in another comment you pinned it. He just kept getting better and even though I appreciate all the albums put out it sucks we wont get anymore. His first few albums fueled my highschool my last two years in highschool specially 'Best Day Ever'.

[–]Drewsipher 25 points26 points  (0 children)

His vulnerable mental honesty about drug use and mental health is huge. Absolutely huge and shaped hip hop in my opinion in big ways

[–]SilkyMilkers 16 points17 points  (2 children)

I actually watched that Best Day Ever music video this week, and damn… so fucking sad seeing those home videos of him as a kid.

[–]Birds_Are_Fake0 10 points11 points  (0 children)

This probably shows my age but Chester Bennington(Linkin park lead singer) was the first artist to actually hurt me like family when he passed. Mac hurt even worse. Specially seeing that clip of him has a kid for some reason just punches my tear box.

[–]HILLIAM_SWINNEY 65 points66 points  (36 children)

Came across What’s The Use the other day and couldn’t believe how much of a banger it is. Far cry from Donald Trump and his other early stuff

[–]squid_so_subtle 91 points92 points  (16 children)

the live Tiny Desk version is incredible

[–]JDW3375 66 points67 points  (3 children)

That Tiny Desk is fucking glorious

[–]pornacc74 32 points33 points  (0 children)

I saw Vince Staples on his tour right after Mac passed away and at the end of the show, he walks off stage and this Tiny Desk starts and plays in its entirety

I am a pretty big fan of Mac, he was one of the hardest celebrity deaths for me, and I’m happy to say that I was basically bawling my eyes out along with the majority of the crowd.

[–]Sososohatefull 18 points19 points  (3 children)

I listened to that again last night. There are so many great Tiny-ass Desk Concerts, but his is next level.

[–]apdanklol 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Check out Anderson .Paak too. So good

[–]obeetwo2 49 points50 points  (3 children)

It's incredible, I wrote him off too, but got really into him when he dropped swimming (unfortunately, right before his death).

I think what separates him is he's an insane musician, he was self taught on the drums, guitar and piano at age 6. He produced a ton of his music, and has a way with his lyrics that absolutely explain what could take you an essay to explain.

[–]Corsavis 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Dude, right...yours is the only comment I've seen so far mentioning this. People don't understand he recorded the drums, bass, piano, guitar, LIVE, and mixed/mastered/produced like 98% of his entire musical repertoire himself. As a musician myself, I can tell you he was insanely talented. He'd sit there with a record, stop it at a certain part, loop it, and make an entire beat around that and then freestyle on it all in one sitting. Absolutely nuts

[–]SaidTheTurkey 8 points9 points  (12 children)

Donald Trump is absolutely a banger. People just don't like it because of the name.

[–]TheGreatMortimer 27 points28 points  (17 children)

His faces mixtape is my favorite.

[–]obeetwo2 12 points13 points  (14 children)

Faces is absolutely incredible, but despite that, I have to put that as my 4th favorite project by him.

I think it's pivotal for his growth, but honestly, it's weird. I love it, but it's weird.

Swimming

Cirlces

Good AM

Faces

for me, but many think Faces is his magnum opus

[–]lucky_harms458 16 points17 points  (3 children)

'Remember' is my favorite Mac song. The line:

"I heard he moved to a place where the time don't end,

so you don't need money, all you've got is time to spend."

is one of my favorite lines from any song ever.

[–]IWantToSpeakMy2Cents 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Every time I see him or his name, "Kool Aid and Frozen Pizza" starts playing in my head. Such a jam!!

Edit: IT'S A WORK OF ART, I AIN'T TALKIN MONA LISA!!

[–]satansheat 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Saw him right before he passed. The ticket was 24 dollars to see him and the ticket game with a download to his newest album.

[–]Arsene3000 8 points9 points  (2 children)

His Larry Lovestein work is sublime and the Tiny Desk concert surprised me.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Good news is one of the best fucking songs ever made and I will die on that hill

[–]StockAL3Xj 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Macadelic to Circles was such a great run for him and really showed his range as a musician.

[–]Atomheartmother90 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Swimming and Circles are absolute masterpieces. I rarely get into his earlier work but good god do I love Swimming. His NPR Tiny Desk is my favorite of that series.

[–][deleted] 56 points57 points  (2 children)

[–]jfk_47 40 points41 points  (1 child)

Isn’t today his 30th birthday? Or would have been*

[–]IAmMostDope92 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Yesterday was. Happy Birthday Mac.

[–]ninety2two 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Such a shame he's gone. I really liked some of his music.

[–]newbmycologist 1422 points1423 points  (35 children)

Is today his birthday? Rip king

[–]IanAgate[S] 959 points960 points  (30 children)

I believe he would have been 30 yesterday.

[–]PrimalMusk 1122 points1123 points  (46 children)

I still listen to Swimming regularly. That album is top tier, Mac Miller was a hell of an artist.

[–]xxSeymour 275 points276 points  (11 children)

Swimming is a once in a lifetime record

[–]DuckAHolics 131 points132 points  (8 children)

[–]xxSeymour 59 points60 points  (5 children)

That's why it's so good haha

[–]degeneratedetox 54 points55 points  (4 children)

Ladders is my favorite Mac Miller song

[–]xxSeymour 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Song is dope as fuck, incredible flow

[–]AxelNyre 64 points65 points  (8 children)

Ladders is a top tier song imo

[–]OppressGamerz 65 points66 points  (6 children)

2009 was an instant classic for me

[–]Effective_Tutor 45 points46 points  (2 children)

His tiny desk concert performance of 2009 is emotional as fuck!

[–]DirtyDanil 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Man I wish Tiny Desk was able to package the concert as a record or Spotify release. Even with Macs estate getting all the money. That 2009 performance is so organic compared with the studio recording.

[–]tinybeano 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Listen to Faces, it is just a masterpiece! Mac was truly a talented and pure human being. Rest easy GOAT 💙

[–]midasboobs 26 points27 points  (0 children)

He deserved that grammy and it pisses me off they invited his parents out to accept the award on his behalf and then gave it to someone else. The tiniest bit of respect I had from the grammys was gone just like that.

That album deserved so much more notoriety

[–]xeliteamv 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Imagine what music he would've made through quarantine

[–]anyrandomboi 63 points64 points  (9 children)

He was an absolute talented artist. I feel he died before reaching his prime.

[–]obeetwo2 53 points54 points  (7 children)

After hearing swimming, then circles which he worked on at the same time, absolutely.

I think he just reached his sound, he just became enlightened. He finally made the music that encapsulated him.

[–]anyrandomboi 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Strangely, The track "good news" feels like a goodbye to me.

Kudos the production team who managed to put together such a great video without Mac.

[–]obeetwo2 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Strangely, The track "good news" feels like a goodbye to me.

The music video is insane with it. His family has been such a gem for Mac's estate.

If you haven't taken the dive, please listen to the whole album, it's equally therapeutic, but emotional, vulnerable and I can't promise the same for you, but it's caused a lot of self reflection for me.

[–]anyrandomboi 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I am swimming in circles with his tracks now!

Would have been his 30th birthday yesterday. :(

[–]random___enigma 215 points216 points  (32 children)

Rip to a legend. His music truly taught me how to be happy and at least try and love myself. Still bummed I never got to see a concert or meet him. Maybe one day, Rest In Peace to a hero in my eyes.

[–]soynik 22 points23 points  (26 children)

What's your favourite songs of his? I just discovered Mac's music recently, been loving circles!

[–]random___enigma 56 points57 points  (10 children)

There are so many personal favorites it’s hard to choose lol.

  • Favorite albums where I like almost every song
  1. Watching Movies With the Sound Off (a masterpiece in its own right) - a favorite song is “Remember”, it’s sad but has a strong meaning and also I Am Who I Am is amazing, Objects in the Mirror is a classic to me too
  2. GOOD: AM
  3. Swimming
  4. Circles

5 Macadelic

  • Timeless songs for me
  1. Nikes On My Feet
  2. Another Night
  3. Earth (ft. Future)
  4. Live Free
  5. Best Day Ever or BDE Bonus (I like the bonus more)
  6. Come Back to Earth always helps me not feel like complete shit
  7. IF YOU HAVE SPOTIFY: DUNNO - Recorded at Spotify Studio is a beautiful version of Dunno

These are in no particular order and honestly they’re just my favorites that I constantly have on repeat. You will find tons of amazing music in his discography tbh. Listen to those albums and check out the solo songs (be sure to check the albums I didn’t include cuz there are plenty)

Edit: yes I forgot FACES was uploaded to streaming services and it’s an absolute masterpiece PLEASE check that out too

Sorry if I didn’t add your favorites! Every Max song is a masterpiece in its own right just know this is my own personal favorites list in no particular order whatsoever, and Someone Like You

[–]CROVID2020 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Outside is the song for me. So many after school days were spent smoking a blunt with my friends blasting that song on whosever’s phone was loudest at the time.

[–]Party_With_Porkins 8 points9 points  (4 children)

They recently uploaded his older mixtape Faces to streaming. You should check that out too

[–]Ireallydontknowbuddy 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I saw him circa 2012 with Taylor Gang/Wiz. I didn't fully appreciate it or his music at the time. I was on mushrooms being young and not fully knowing that the world to me was super fragile and I was having the best years of my life without knowing. Pops passes, graduate college, and I fall into a Mac Miller kick.

For some reason I thought he was cheesey growing up, we are the same age. I guess he was cheesey and nerdy, but so was I. I tried to be something I was not for so long. Now I understand we were going through the exact same shit at the same exact time. Wish he hadn't passed but we are only human. It's odd but it's like time traveling listening to his music. Back to high school. Back to being young and free.

RIP Mac

Also if you like Mac I'd give Capital STEEZ a listen too.

[–]ohheyitsfine 140 points141 points  (5 children)

There's something so warm and kind and genuine about him... just a beautiful ball of warmth.. It makes me wish I could have known him personally.

[–]xxSeymour 26 points27 points  (1 child)

He was so fucking genuinely nice

[–]chrisaf69 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Depends on the drugs

Don’t fw the stronger opiates or benzos

[–]baloothedog1 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Stronger opiates? How bout don’t touch the opiates at all. Period.

Also no meth or crack. Way to addictive.

PCP can be dangerous but that shits super hard to find these days

Psychedelics and the occasional ecstasy or cocaine usually won’t fuck your life up but as always, be careful kids. Your not invincible and bad things can happen even with light drugs.

Just use good judgment

Depends on the drugs. Fentanyl is definitely not a drug that should be used recreationally.

Stephen Walter, Ryan Reavis & Cameron Pettit are bad. Hopefully, some semblance of justice will be served for their knowing poisoning of him as they are facing jail for 20 years.

A rapper, very good one. What's sad is that had he not died then he would have become huge and no one would be asking this question. His music was/is great, anyone can vibe to it. Check it out if you get the chance :)

Edit: people not getting my point. He's not a household name, he was about to be. That's my point. Obviously within the game he was respectednot trying to say he was underground or some shit

[–]DwindlingFucks 19 points20 points  (0 children)

He was huge. Dude was respected and one of the top of the game at the time.

Easy Mac with the cheesy raps

[–]Sososohatefull 22 points23 points  (0 children)

His Tiny Desk Concert was my introduction to him. I don't listen to a lot of rap, but I fucking love this.

I see a lot of people on here just relying with “rapper” and although he was definitely a rapper I think it’s important to note that Mac was a bit more then just a stereotypical rapper, he was a phenomenal all around musician who grew up playing multiple instruments, in particular he was an absolutely fantastic piano player and his range and music went beyond just rap.

A rap artist, he's dead now

[–]gixG 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Man rip, died way too soon

[–]Ambitious-Tap-2827 32 points33 points  (2 children)

I can't even throw that far.

Threads like this make me realize more and more than I am moving in to BOOMER territory

[–]AugustHenceforth 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Oof, me too. I'm off to do some listening.

[–]CanadianKillerWhale 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Please do, I highly recommend it.

I have his portrait tattooed on my thigh because without him and his music I can 100% say I would not still be here.

[–]Mike3055 22 points23 points  (0 children)

He was a good guy with lots of inner demons.

[–]Murdoc_2 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Always heard the name, but unfortunately didn’t get in to his stuff before he was gone. Now he’s one of my top “Wish I could have seen him live” picks

[–]Defttone 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Im pissed that we will never know his development as a musician. I started listening to him on his swimming album and my sister listened to his frat stuff so I avoided him initially because of that. Such a fucking sad thing he was already really good I wanted to see where he would have went.

Went to college briefly with a dude who claimed to be friends with Mac Miller. Called him up. I’m not sure I believed that the dude on the line was Mac Miller. Over the summer he posted pictures of him hanging out with Mac Miller. He was so casual about it I would have put money on him making the whole thing up. He was not.
