Mac Miller would have turned 27 this Saturday, Jan. 19. Clockwork, the late Pittsburgh artist's former DJ, is making sure he's getting the party he deserves with an event to honor his legacy. "I wanted to do something in remembrance of his day that the whole city of New York can enjoy," Clockwork said upon revealing the Brooklyn birthday party on his Instagram.
"He loved NYC, he moved here like a year after me," Clockwork continued. "Just him and I living in Brooklyn exploring the city. So this Saturday @sunnyvalebrooklyn the whole night is dedicated to Mac Miller. I'll also be giving some of the proceeds to the Mac Miller Circles Fund. Playing all his classic and rare records and even songs that he liked to party to."
The last show Mac Miller played with Clockwork was Lollapalooza Chile 2018, and upon hearing of his friend's death, he promised to honor his legacy. "We have a lot of music in the vault that I don't even know what to do with," he wrote on Twitter.
