Tributes have poured in from around the music world following Mac Miller’s death

Childish Gambino honoured Miller at his show in Chicago, dedicating his song "Riot" to the late rapper, after sharing touching words.

“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.”

Chance the Rapper took to Twitter to pay tribute to the rapper who helped him launch his career in music.

Pharrell reflected on his time in the studio with Miller, working on a joint-EP which never surfaced in full form. "I kept telling you, you could sing, but you didn’t want to hear it. And your latest project has all the singing".

Elton John dedicated Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me to Miller, sending his best wishes to his family.

G-Eazy and Khalid also shared their grief on social media, with fans reporting that G-Eazy broke down on stage after dedicating "Everything Will Be OK' to his friend.

Mac Miller, whose real name is Malcolm James McCormick, shared his struggles with substance abuse through his music. His family confirmed his death in a statement, calling the rapper "a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans."
