He said: "A lot of times in my life I've put this pressure to hold myself to the standard of whatever I thought I was supposed to be, or how I was supposed to be perceived. And it creates pressure."

Miller began releasing music as a teenager in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He released five albums as Mac Miller and collaborated with many other artists.

During a performance in the days following Miller's death, Glover spoke on stage about his relationship with him. He asked fans not to film it, but he said: "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."

The coroner is investigating the cause of Miller's death.
