(AllHipHop News) The rap game took a huge L when Mac Miller passed, along with the rest of the world.
Recently, a label named Chinga Chang hopes to roll out an official tribute album with artists who inspired the late Pittsburgh rapper.
Owner Dan Herman reveals The MAC Encomium LP will benefit the Mac Miller Circles Fund, with tracks from Big L, Rakim, Kool G Rap, Big Daddy Kane, Sean Price, Big Pun, Masta Ace, MC Guru, as well as hometown artists inspired by Mac such as Jimmy Wopo.
It will also include material that Mac recorded with DJ Premier.
For fans wishing to get a hold of the project, it will be available as a free download after filling out a form and watching a short few videos on addiction and how to get help.
The Circles Fund was formed last October through the Pittsburgh Foundation, which aligned with Mac Miller’s tribute concert in Los Angeles.
The Post-Gazette reports for every download, Chinga Chang will donate $1.92 (in light of 1992 when Miller was born) to the Circles Fund, with the target goal at $350,000.
