Mac Miller's First Ever Mixtape K.I.D.S. Is Coming To Spotify And Apple Music

Fans of Mac Miller and his music were understandably devastated when the singer died late last year.

The sudden and tragic death left a massive hole in their hearts and, naturally, they've been listening to his songs and albums to remember him.

Founder of Rostrum Records, Benjy Grinberg, which looks after Mac's music, has revealed Miller's first ever mixtape K.I.D.S. will be coming to streaming services by the end of the year.

Benjy has written on Instagram: "On this 9th anniversary of the first tape that Mac and Rostrum put out together, I'm excited to announce that K.I.D.S. will be available on all streaming services later this year!

"After Macadelic came out, Mac asked if we could clear this one next. It has been challenging but we are getting through it. We miss Mac every day and we see our job as making sure his music lives on. We love you, Mac."

People who have seen the post have been blown away, with one person writing: "Thank you for advocating for the legacy of his music."

This is on top of news that broke earlier this year that Mac recorded a whole unreleased album before his death.

According to Chicago producer Thelonious Martin, Mac did a collaborative album with producer and rapper Madlib.

Martin told DJ Booth: "When we was working on 'Guidelines,' he was always excited about all these other songs. He had this Madlib album, called Maclib.

"I opened for Madlib in Chicago last summer, at Pitchfork. So I'm opening for Madlib, and about 15, 20 minutes left in my set, Madlib pulls up. Pete Rock walks up as well.

"So I'm trying to focus and DJ, and Madlib gets on and 15 minutes into his set he just randomly plays a Mac Miller joint.

"And I turn to him, I'm like, 'There's more of these, right?' He's said, 'Oh, yeah, there's a whole album. Maclib.' What! What! He just kept moving on with his DJ set.

"If Madlib decides to bless the world with that project, he should."

American bass guitarist Thundercat, who was mates with Miller, has confirmed the secret album on social media saying: "I was there when he recorded it. Blew my fucking mind."

There was speculation that Mac Miller was going to win the 2019 Grammy for Best Album but was pipped on the night to Cardi B for her hit tracks off Invasion of Privacy.

Miller's Swimming was released on August 3 - just over a month before he was found dead at his home outside Los Angeles at the age of 26.
