Saturday has been particularly emotional for Mac Miller's fans.
More than four months after his unexpected death, the Pittsburgh rapper is receiving a flood of tributes on what would've been his 27th birthday. Music figures like Juicy J, Thundercat, Cole Bennett, Hi-Tek, Lil B, and Rex Orange County recognized the day by sharing heartfelt messages on social media. Ariana Grande possibly joined in the show of love with a tweet that simply read, "miss u."
DJ Clockwork is also saluting the late rapper with a tribute birthday party in Brooklyn. The event is going down Saturday night and will benefit the Mac Miller Circles Fund—a charity supports arts and education programs for Pittsburgh's underprivileged youth.
"Like we have done in the previous years on Mac's bday, we celebrate ... LOUD. I wanted to do something in Remembrance of his day that the whole city of New York can enjoy," Clockwork wrote on Instagram. "Playing all his classic and rare records and even songs that he liked to party to."

Mac was found dead Sept. 7, 2018, inside his Southern California home. About two months later, the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office announced the rapper's death was the result of an accidental drug overdose.
