Mac Miller’s Spotify Singles recordings gain posthumous releaseMac Miller Benefit Concert Live Stream

Just before his death on September 7, Mac Miller recorded a Spotify Singles session where he performed Swimming album constituent “Dunno,” and a cover of Billy Preston’s 1974 track, “Nothing From Nothing.” Both recordings have been posthumously released on the streaming service and are now available to listeners. Spotify‘s series of “original artist recordings,” Spotify Singles seeks to “channel back the good old days of vinyl and CD singles.”

Each artist invited to take part in a Spotify Singles session stops by Spotify’s in-house New York studio to lay down a new recording of an original song from the artist’s catalog. The selected musician’s second installment in the Spotify Singles concept is traditionally a cover of an existing song. The stripped-down, intimate return to musical authenticity that Spotify seeks to affect via Spotify Singles figures in fuller form on the streaming platform’s Spotify Singles playlists, which Spotify updates each Wednesday.

Mac Miller’s toxicology report confirms accidental overdoseMac Miller Toicology 1

The circumstances surrounding Mac Miller‘s untimely death this past September have been the source of abundant speculation. However, according to an official coroner’s report obtained by TMZ, Miller, did in fact, die from a lethal drug cocktail, including cocaine, alcohol, and the powerful synthetic opiod, fentanyl.

According to the report, the level of each respective drug found in his blood was not high enough to kill him independently–though the depressant-stimulant combination proved fatal. Miller was found dead in his San Fernando Valley home by his assistant, who reported the rapper was already “blue” in the face upon discovery. Authorities recovered a sundry of prescription pills in Miller’s home, in addition to an empty bottle of alcohol, bags of unidentified white powder, and white residue on both his iPad and a rolled up $20 dollar bill.

The LA County Coroner was able to identify the deceased Miller by his “Most Dope” and “No Woman No Cry” tattoos. The Pittsburgh Blue Slide Park artist is survived by his family, who described him in a recent release as, “a bright light in this world for his family, friends, and fans.”

Carnage is taking a break from the music industryCarnage Ultra South Africa 2018 Rukes

Carnage has announced he’s taking a break from the music industry in an Instagram post, citing his mental and physical health as reasons for the respite. He was set to embark on the 12-day Unusual Suspects Tour as a supporting act alongside Smokepurpp, with Gucci Mane headlining the endeavor.

After releasing his second studio album Battered Bruised & Bloody, featuring big names such as the late Mac Miller, as well as Lil Pump, Lil B, Steve Aoki, Migos and more, Carnage’s 2018 has also been filled with a jam-packed tour schedule of performances filled with high-intensity party surroundings.

In the post, “Thirty Rack” mentioned, “having close friends pass due to this stuff really scares the fuck out of me,” likely alluding to Avicii and the more recently deceased Miller: both fellow collaborators of his. Carnage disclosed that his therapist and doctor recommended he take time off, and the break is simply a warranted recharge.
