It's been 4 years since we tragically lost Mac Miller. His sudden death shock the world. It also inspired others like French Montana.
The hip-hop rapper says Mac's death allowed him to launch an addiction help service line. During a recent podcast interview with PEOPLE Every Day, he talked about partnering with Guardian Recovery Services and NAQI Healthcare.
“[Mac Miller’s death] touched me because I’m in that space and I consider these artists as my brothers and my family,” he told the podcast. “And when we lose one, it’s like damn near losing part of us."
“You can’t shake it off yourself, because it’s dangerous,” he added. “I’m very excited and very happy that we can cure people, especially in the comfort of their homes. A lot of people are private.”
He also shared about fighting his own addictions as well. “When you go through your problems, you want to stay private and you want to be taken care of wherever you’re comfortable. We want to help people stay alive as much as we can, wherever they’re comfortable.”
