Rapper Mac Miller, who tragically passed away yesterday (September 7), live streamed an intimate recording session from his home in San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles the night before he died.

The Pittsburg native, real name Malcolm James McCormick, live streamed on Instagram a recording session from his home studio and can be seen playing the keyboards.

The 26-year-old emcee was found dead at his home last night from a suspected drug overdose.

Check out his final live stream below:

Mac Miller was renowned for his versatile styles and flows on the microphone. While he did have an eclectic taste in music, at his core he was a hip-hop purist. He was also embraced by both old and new school hip-hop fans, his passing leaves a void in the hip-hop community.

Since the announcement of his passing the hip-hop community has come out in full force to pay their respects to their fellow contemporary.

Rapper J. Cole wrote:

Rest In Peace to the great soul Mac Miller

He went on to add:

This is a message for anybody in this game that’s going through something. If you don’t feel right, if you feel you have a substance problem, if you need a ear to vent to. If you uncomfortable talking to people around you. Please reach out to me.
