Speaking about the late rapper at his Allentown, Pennsylvania, show of his three-year farewell tour, Elton John dedicated his 1974 hit “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” to Miller, saying:
“Who unbelievably, at 26, passed away. It’s inconceivable that someone so young and with so much talent could do that. I would like to pass all of our love and best wishes to his loved ones, his family, his friends. Mac, wherever you are, I hope you’re happy now.”
