“Always be my boy”: Travis Scott pays emotional mid-concert tribute to Mac Miller

"Mac Miller, we fucking love you"

Travis Scott has saluted the memory of late friend Mac Miller, after his death was confirmed earlier this month.

The ‘Swimming’ star, 26, was found dead at his San Fernando Valley home on September 7. It is believed that he died from an apparent overdose.

Last night, close friend Travis Scott paid tribute to close friend Miller during a concert in Las Vegas.

He rapped during a freestyle between tracks: “Malcolm that’s my boy/Mac Miller I love you, always be my boy.

“Mac Miller we fucking love you, you the fucking one.”

As well as the tributes to Miller from some of rap’s leading lights, his ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande recently hailed the rapper as her “dearest friend”.

Grande, who dated the star for two years until their split in May, wrote on Instagram: “I adored you from the day I met you when I was nineteen and I always will.

“I can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. I really can’t wrap my head around it. we talked about this. so many times. I’m so mad, I’m so sad I don’t know what to do.

“You were my dearest friend. for so long. above anything else. I’m so sorry I couldn’t fix or take your pain away. I really wanted to. the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. I hope you’re okay now. rest.”

Kendrick Lamar called him a “great musician [and] great writer.”  Childish Gambino also dedicated a song to Miller during a recent performance,
