At his concert later that evening, G-Eazy spoke briefly of Miller's passing before before going into an emotionally charged performance of his song "Everything Will Be OK."
"I swear, life is so f---ing fragile," he told the audience at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
After the show, the rapper posted a photo of himself on stage standing behind a giant photo of Miller on the screen behind him. "Performed everything will be ok for you tonight and f---in broke down on stage. Rest peacefully bro, we miss you," the caption reads.
G-Eazy also apologized to fans for canceling a post-concert event. "I gotta cancel the after party tonight just doesn’t seem appropriate or right," he tweeted.
In late August, Miller (born Malcolm James McCormick) was formally charged with two counts of DUI after a May 2018 car crash. That accident came weeks after he and Ariana Grande announced their breakup after two years of dating. Miller spoke openly about his struggles with addiction over the years.
Following news of his passing, other music stars like J. Cole, Chance the Rapper, The Weeknd, Meek Mill, and many more shared their condolences on social media.
