Earlier today, law enforcement sources confirmed to NBC News that the rapper was found dead at his San Fernando Valley home after a possible overdose. His family would later release a statement confirming the tragic passing.
While the performer struggled with substance abuse, many in the music community were shocked to hear of his passing.
In fact, the man behind tracks like "Self Care" and "Dang!" completed an interview with a publication just one day before his death.
Ultimately, more than a few familiar faces in Hollywood are taking to social media and posting tributes and memories. Take a look at some of the heartfelt posts below.

Such a genuine person. Brilliant sense of humor. A true artist. Your spirit is what impressed me the most. The energy you brought to any space you were in. Contagious. You reached out to me at times when others didn’t. You were human. And we shared the same disease. A disease that is out to kill us, and when left untreated eventually will. I’m shaken. Shaken that someone who had such a light can be taken from this world so easily. It could have been me too many times to count. On the surface people that appear to have it all, are not exempt from the gravity and cunning nature of this disease. If you’re in the midst of addiction tell someone what’s going on. Don’t be a secret. Go to a 12 step meeting. Introduce yourself and you’ll be greeted with love and understanding from people that are fighting the same battle. Surrender. There are many paths, but it’s the only thing that has worked for me. I’m scared. Scared of how real this all is. Life and death. Beyond sad. Such a beautiful soul. Sending love to family, friends and everyone whose life was better because of your presence on this earth. Rest In Peace Mac 💔

This just really saddened me. I hung out with Mac a few times over the years and he was always such a sweetheart, always had the time of day for anyone, whoever they were. As well as being a great talent, he was a great human. Love and prayers to his family and friends. I don’t know what else to say. It’s so heartbreaking.

Mac's death comes just weeks before he was expected to kick off a major United States tour. The start date was October 27 in San Francisco.
His most recent album titled Swimming was released this past summer and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard charts.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mac's family during this difficult time.
