When asked if it was difficult becoming famous so young Miller admitted it had presented problems.

He said: “There’s pressure. A lot of times in my life I’ve put this pressure to hold myself to the standard of whatever I thought I was supposed to be, or how I was supposed to be perceived. And that creates pressure …

“It’s annoying to be out and have someone come up to me and think they know. They’re like “Yo, man, are you okay?” I’m like “Yeah, I’m fucking at the grocery store.” You know? It’s the job. This is what I signed up for.

“So, you just have to not. You have to have your own reality and that has to be the driving force of your life. Do I wish that every single thing I did when I was 19 wasn’t a discussion? Sure.”

Miller had a lot of issues in the run up to his death at his San Fernando home today.

The rapper wrecked his G-Wagon by wrapping it around a utility pole in May and was arrested for a DUI and hit and run.

Miller fled the scene but the police tracked him back to his home where he was found to be two times over the legal limit.

While insiders revealed that his split with Grande was caused by his continual drugs abuse.

In his interview he told how he tried to get piece of mind from watching the HBO documentary The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandlin.

“And that shit struck a chord with me because that’s the goal, to get better and to try to make this shit the most of a reflection of who I am.”
