Mac Miller’s estate releases ‘Macadelic’ vinyl and BTS footage on 10th anniversary

Since Mac Miller‘s tragic drug-related death in 2018, his estate has taken it upon themselves to continue contributing to his legacy with well-thought-out, respectful posthumous releases.

Whether it be his elegant, final posthumous album Circles from 2020, adding years-old, classic mixtapes like K.I.D.S. and Faces to streaming services or clearing feature verses for Young Thug‘s Punk album and dvsn and Ty Dolla $ign‘s collaborative album Cheers To The Best Memories, Mac’s family has always had the right approach.

And now, once again, they are back at it. For the tenth anniversary of Mac’s 2012 mixtape Macadelic, which released on March 23 a decade ago, the estate dropped a vinyl on macmillerswebsite.com. In the description of the item, it explains that portions of the proceeds will go to the Mac Miller Fund, which aims to provide resources for the less-privileged youth that have aspirations in art in his hometown Pittsburgh, as well as funding programs that target substance abuse in the music industry and help with addiction recovery.

Macadelic is a staple in Mac Miller’s discography because of his bold ability to transform his sound sonically at the time to incorporate psychedelic themes in his music, as well as it including epic feature assists from rising stars at the time like Kendrick Lamar and Joey Bada$$.

Along with the vinyl release, Mac’ estate released a brief video montage of the official Mac Miller Youtube page, which revisits the era in which Mac created Macadelic. Never-before-seen footage from studio sessions and his tour, which included The Cool Kids, Travis Porter and YG as openers, are on display as the project’s stellar second track “Desperado” plays in the background.

It seems like every time dialogue around Mac Miller’s legacy seems to simmer, his estate does a fantastic job at reminding his fans why he was so special, and giving them more access to his music than they had before.
