Miller rose to fame back in 2010, when he caught the public's attention with the mixtape "K.I.D.S," which included the hits "Nikes on My Feet" and "Best Day Ever."
Earlier this year, the rapper split from his girlfriend of two years, Ariana Grande, which sent him down a destructive path. A week after the separation, Miller was arrested for drunk driving.
The late 26-year-old, who struggled with drug addiction for most of his life, hit a power pole in the San Fernando Valley and fled the scene, but the police managed to track him down and put him under arrest.
A HEART OF GOLD
But, despite his flaws and addictions, he was regarded as a very nice young man, who was always ready to make others smile and feel good about themselves.
Miller wasn't the only celebrity, besides Burt Reynolds, to have passed this week; Liz Fraser, from the "Carry on" franchise, as also left this world at the age of 88.
