Watch Childish Gambino's Touching Mac Miller Tribute
Bino beautifully eulogized the late rapper at last night’s performance in Chicago
The death of Mac Miller has been mourned by countless musicians, both privately and very publicly, in the days since the rapper suffered an apparent overdose. He was just 26-years-old.
During last night’s tour stop in Chicago, Childish Gambino took a moment to dedicate a performance of the thunderous “Awaken, My Love!” cut, “Riot,” to Miller, noting that “I’m a very sensitive person, but this Mac Miller shit got me fucked up.”
Pausing to temper himself, he went on, “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.” “And we should be allowed to be sad about that. Like my heart was broken. And I feel good about being sad, because it tells me that he was special, that I had a special moment. Everybody in this room deserves that.”
