Mac Miller’s estate just revealed that they would be releasing a book remembering his life and music with stories from his friends and collaborators. Let’s get into what we know about this particular project.
It’s been almost three years since we lost Mac Miller to an accidental overdose. He was only 26 when he passed away in 2018, and his estate has been finding ways to remember his legacy ever since. In 2020, they released his album Circles, which was completed with the assistance of Mac’s collaborator Jon Brion. And now, his estate revealed they would be releasing “The Book of Mac: Remembering Mac Miller.”
According to the official Amazon page for the book, editorial director and author Donna-Claire Chesman “dedicated a year to chronicling his work through the unique lens of her relationship to the music and Mac’s singular relationship to his fans.” And before anyone gets concerned, Mac’s family posted their stamp of approval on the book by sharing it to their page “92tilinfinity.”
The writer Donna-Claire took to Twitter and revealed that she interviewed over thirty family and friends for the book and thanked fans for trusting her with Mac’s story. And so, The Book Of Mac will be made up of intimate interviews with those who knew Mac best, including his famous friends and collaborators like Kehlani, Thundercat, Wiz Khalifa, and more.
Kehlani is quoted on the Amazon page saying, “I want people to remember his humanity as they’re listening to the music, to realize how much bravery and courage it takes to be that honest, be that self-aware, and be that real about things going on internally. He let us witness that entire journey.”
And while the book is already available for pre-order, it’s not set to be released until October, around a month after the third anniversary of Mac’s passing. Just hours after the project was announced, The Book Of Mac already reached the number three spot on the Amazon Books Best Sellers list.
And fans have been taking to social media to share their reactions to this news. One person wrote, “Gotta get this, Rest Easy Mac.” Another fan chimed in, saying, “I don’t like reading but for Mac I’ll read.” And many others shared screenshots of their pre-order purchases. We can’t wait for the book to come out and learn even more about the beloved Mac Miller.
