Childish Gambino took time out of his recent concert in Chicago to speak about late rapper Mac Miller, who passed away on Friday, September 7. The musician reflected on their special bond to the audience and even dedicated a song to Miller at Chicago's United Center on Saturday night.

According to Rolling Stone, Gambino said, “I’m a very sensitive person… but this Mac Miller shit got me fucked up. He was so nice. 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 it," he continued. "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.”

Childish Gambino concluded his tribute by dedication his song "Riot" to the late rapper. “So I just wanna say ‘I love you Mac,’ and I just want to tell you that I love you and this song is for him, because I feel like sometimes he wanted to let go.”
