Since Mac Miller’s death on Friday, tributes from fellow rappers and famous musicians have been pouring in.
Childish Gambino was one of the first, honoring Miller during a concert in Chicago. Donald Glover asked fans not to film his tribute to prevent “commodifying the moment” but said, “this Mac Miller shit got me fucked up.”
“He was so nice. He was the sweetest guy, he was so nice. And we were both internet music kids, and a lot of critics were like, ‘This corny-ass white dude, this corny-ass black dude,’ and we used to talk. And this kid, he just loved music.”
To honor the late rapper, Glover closed out his tribute by dedicating the song ‘Riot’ to Miller.
Chance the Rapper chimed in, saying Mac helped him launch his career.
I dont know what to say Mac Miller took me on my second tour ever. But beyond helping me launch my career he was one of the sweetest guys I ever knew. Great man. I loved him for real. Im completely broken. God bless him.
