Last month, Vince Staples revealed Miller refused to take royalties from him for one of the early projects they worked on together. In 2013, Miller executive produced Staples’ breakout mixtape, ‘Stolen Youth’.
“The whole project, he gave me ownership of it. He just said, ‘If you make a gang of money just give me a S-Class,'” Staples said during an appearance on N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN’s Drink Champs podcast. “Then he took me on the road and paid for my room and board and still paid me. So yeah you know that was the homie.”
Meanwhile, a November 16 trial has been set for the three men accused of selling Miller the drugs that led to his death. Prosecutors are claiming that the narcotics were counterfeit and laced with fentanyl. The men have been held without bail for over two years in Los Angeles.
