Miller died at his home in Los Angeles on September 7. He was 26.

The rapper had been very open about his issues with substance abuse and had been struggling in the wake of his break up from ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande earlier this year.

In May, he was arrested after crashing his car in the San Fernando Valley, with his blood alcohol level almost twice the legal limit. He was charged with two counts of driving under the influence in August.

His music, which often examined his depression and drug use, won him fans among some of the biggest names in hip-hop.

Performers at a tribute concert for him last week included Chance the Rapper, Travis Scott and John Mayer.
