According to US Weekly, Mac Miller is up for a posthumous award at the upcoming Grammys, and if he doesn’t win the award, his family hopes Cardi B takes it instead. Mac Miller passed away in September 2018 from a drug overdose at 26-years-old, just months after his breakup with Ariana Grande.
Mac’s album, Swimming, was released one month before he died. According to a source, who spoke to US Weekly, “Malcolm’s family was so moved when his nomination was announced.” His family believes it to be the most impactful album of the year, but if he doesn’t win “ they’re rooting for Cardi B.”
Cardi B’s latest album, Invasion of Privacy, is also going for the same award. Other nominees up for the award are Pusha-T (Daytona), Nipsey Hussle (Victory Lap), and Travis Scott (Astroworld)
