This past Monday marked the two-year anniversary of Mac Miller's sudden passing at his home in Studio City, CA. Close friends including SZA, Thundercat, Chance the Rapper and others paid tribute online.

Near the time of his death, few people were as tight with Mac as Thundercat, who flew home in the middle of a European tour just to perform alongside his buddy for his now-iconic NPR Tiny Desk Concert.

"You have two families, the family you’re born with and the family you choose," Thundercat wrote on Twitter. "The family I chose, Not a day goes by I don’t feel it. I know y’all feel it too. Only bumping Mac Miller today."

SZA quote tweeted the message and thanked Mac "for allowing me in your space to discover myself and believing in me the entire time." The two worked.

Meanwhile, Chance, who opened for Mac on his 2013 Space Migration Tour, simply remembered how "Mac was so cool."

One of the funnier memories came from Pittsburgh producer Sledgren, who recalled a time when the DJ's computer crashed during one of Mac's sets, causing him to punch the wall and injure his hand. Mac's longtime manager nicknamed Q laughed and claimed he had never seen him so angry.

Thoughts continued to pour in from figures across the rap world, including Wale, Jack Harlow, Juicy J, Ab-Soul and more. Rest easy, Mac.
