Mac Miller Posthumously Earns First-Ever Grammy Nomination

With the announcement of the nominations for the 2019 Grammy awards, Mac Miller was posthumously nominated for his first-ever Grammy nomination.

Mac Miller, who sadly passed away suddenly three months ago, has earned his first-ever Grammy nomination posthumously.

According to Billboard, the young rapper will be up for the award for “Best Rap Album”. Miller’s fifth studio album, Swimming, was released in August, and marked his final release before his untimely death.

Upon its release, Swimming debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album then returned to the top ten after the rapper passed away in September, jumping from 71 to 6 on the chart. Miller’s three singles off the album were “Small Worlds,” “Self Care” and “What’s the Use?”

Miller is up against several other artists for the Best Rap Album Grammy. Also in the running is Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy, Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap, Pusha T’s Daytona and Travis Scott’s Astroworld. The 61st Grammy Awards will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, airing February 10 on CBS.
