Mac Miller’s parents to attend Grammy Awards ceremony on late rapper’s behalf
If Mac Miller secures the 2019 Grammy for “Best Rap Album” for Swimming, the award will be accepted by late rapper’s parents, who will attend the awards ceremony in Miller’s memory. The annual ceremony and the biggest night in music will return to Los Angeles’ Staples Center on February 10, where Alicia Keys will be playing host.
Miller’s fifth studio showing, Swimming, had been considered one of the rapper’s most visceral to date, exploring themes of mental health that stood out from older released. He passed not long after that, further amplifying the themes set in his record. The LP will compete with productions from four other hip hop entities, Cardi B‘s Invasion Of Privacy, Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap, Pusha T‘s Daytona, and Travis Scott‘s Astroworld.
