Musicians across the world have expressed sadness and paid tribute to the US rapper, who was found dead at his California home on Friday aged 26.
“It’s so heartbreaking,” singer Ed Sheeran wrote on Instagram, describing the rapper as “such a sweetheart”.
Snoop Dogg, Chance the Rapper and Missy Elliott have also shared messages.
Miller, whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick, was often open about his substance abuse and reportedly died from a suspected overdose.
“I’m so saddened to hear about Mac Miller, such a kind spirit,” wrote fellow rapper Missy Elliott, adding that she was sending “prayers for strength” to his family.
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.

Speaking on stage at his show in Chicago on Saturday night, Childish Gambino broke off his set to say: “He was so nice. He was the sweetest guy.
“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.”
He went on to dedicate his performance of Riot to Miller, saying, “I just wanna say, ‘I love you, Mac’.'”
Sir Elton John also dedicated a song to Miller at his own show in Pennsylvania, saying: “It’s inconceivable that someone so young, and with so much talent, could do that.”
